The primary objective of this study was to evaluate recruitment policies and practices in the MET to determine challenges with the recruitment of competent and qualified candidates, since it is one of the custodians of human resources in the Public Service of Namibia. Findings of this study revealed that if the PS’s well-crafted recruitment and selection policies were to be translated into practice, then the MET would be the employer of choice. This process could be hampered by the decisions taken by short listing and selection panels, which are reluctant to appoint candidates who are better qualified than them. The MET should create an enabling environment in which communication between management and non-management freely takes place without people being victimised. The findings of the study pointed to the necessity to invoke remedial measures and monitoring mechanisms that would ensure the effective execution of recruitment and selection policies and practices in the public service.
