Major shake-up at NCN – CEO, Human Resources, ICT, Engineering and Programming positions to be advertised

12

The newly appointed Board of the National Communications Network (NCN), this afternoon announced that “several positions including those of CEO, Human Resources, ICT, Engineering and Programming have been rationalized” at the State-owned Media entity.

RESIGNED: NCN's Chief Executive Officer, Molly Hassan
RESIGNED: NCN’s Chief Executive Officer, Molly Hassan

It noted, in a communiqué, that over the last two days the positions of the CEO, Human Resources and ICT have been voluntarily vacated.
“As a consequence, advertisements will soon appear for suitably qualified persons to fill various posts within the entity,” declared the communiqué from the NCN Board.
This official position by the Board, came in the wake of news posted earlier on this site, which confirmed that NCN’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Molly Hassan, has tendered her resignation from the post.
When contacted by INews earlier today, Hassan confirmed that she resigned as NCN CEO and has given the requisite notice as per her contract.
Speculation has been rife that Hassan would have been asked to resign by the eight-month-old APNU/AFC government. Since the administration took office in May, a large number of persons not only in the State Media but across the spectrum of the Public Service and governmental agencies have lost their jobs – either sent on leave, forced to resign or dismissed.
Meanwhile, the Board of NCN noted that, having reviewed the strategic direction, operations and conditions at the State-owned Media entity, it has embarked on a vitalization project at the start of this year. According to a communiqué issued by the Board, NCN’s vitalization project has four main pillars.
Pillar 1 entails identifying a clear strategic direction based on national imperatives. To this end a comprehensive document has been produced by the Board which provides the basis for the second, third and fourth pillars of the project.
Pillar 2 entails management restructure to meet the new strategic direction. The strategic direction now set has necessitated several changes. This includes changes at the administrative level of the organization based on revised terms of reference and competencies for the new structure. The Board announced that “several positions including those of CEO, Human Resources, ICT, Engineering and Programming have been rationalized”.
It noted that over the last two days the positions of the CEO, Human Resources and ICT have been voluntarily vacated. As a consequence, advertisements will soon appear for suitably qualified persons to fill various posts within the entity. The Board of NCN has extended its sincere gratitude for their past service to those moving on and wishes them well in their future endeavors.
Pillar 3 entails re-branding and vitalizing the programming on NCN’s radio and television stations. The Board said there has been an intense and ongoing review of both the current programmes, systems, staff and technical facilities. In addition to internal work being done on re-branding, re-programming, training and creating a new content culture, a nationwide call is currently out for announcers, producers and fresh programme ideas.
Pillar 4 entails vitalizing plant and infrastructure. The Board noted that following months of extensive tours to NCN’s national substations, as well as equipment audits and technical consultations with local and international experts, several urgent needs in the area of physical space, telecommunications infrastructure, training, management and equipment have been identified. The Board has been vigorously pursuing resources to rectify these problems and intends to continue this process in 2016.
The Board of NCN appointed just 3 months ago in October 2015, has re-iterated its commitment to resolutely pursuing this clear strategic direction in the best interest of the nation. As such, all four pillars of the vitalization project are being pursued simultaneously.

  2. If my memory serves me right I hear this President said that he don’t care which party you vote for…what is past is past…come let’s work together for a united Guyana. They should not complain about the PPP. In this short span in government there is so much confusion in this country that people feel betrayed by both parties.

  3. Namakharam Moses is now wearing a donkey’s bridle: a chain in his mouth and a blind on either side of his face. He can’t talk, he can look only where his masters in the PNC tell him where to look, where to go and what to say once that piece of metal is slipped side ways from his mouth. He is in short, a ROBOT designed by the PNC, controlled by the PNC. He has been neutered by the PNC all because of his lust for political power. But wait! he get Larwah. He forgot what Burnham did to Peter D’guar UF. Granger will do the same to AFC

  4. Who is the subject minister responsible for NCN? The Hon. Moses Nagamootoo. Are you suggesting Indians are cleansing Indians?

  5. Mady max I’m sure you will now understand why the Pastor James David Manning said in his sermon that the PNC doesn’t understand the world.

  6. WHAT A BLESSING ,,,,ONE OF THE MANY DEPRIVED PERSONS WHO WAS DENIED THIS AND MANY OTHER JOBS UNDER THE SATAN GOVERNMENT WILL BE ABLE TO WORK NOW ,,I AM SURE MANY OF YOU COULD EMPLOY HER, DON’T BE SELFISH,,

    They were told to hitched up with PNC to make it appear an Ethnic Unity Party.
    Rumjhaatmook said that if abee join PNC abee dis will be dead-meat.
    Fat US man tell them we will turn a blind eye to GECOM.
    Remember the fat man said he and others saw everything- saw free saw fair saw transparent saw none violent election??
    The fat man and others never saw one single Fake Statement of Poll !!!
    Commonsense will tell you that US wanted regime change and regime change is what US get..But oil price dropping rapidly.. Alternative energy is in abundance now and the SUN is free..PNC Malitia activated–PNC National Service activated.
    Question for PNC is Why?? The Independent free press people are afraid to death to ask PNC why..

  8. Molly. You showed signs of maturity. You did the right thing. I hope the others do likewise. There is ethnic purging going on with APNU Government. Your decision is a blessing in disguise.When one door closes a better one is open.
    Let APNU Government destroy the country .Don,t be part of it.
    The fools would try to gain the world but loses their soul.
    The fool and his money will be parted.Very soon RETRIBUTION will step in.
