The long-term success of the Children’s Authority of Trinidad and Tobago depends on its ability to attract, retain and develop employees who are able to ensure the Authority’s growth on a continuous basis.

As a result, the organisation’s policy is to hire staff with positive attitudes, suitable academic qualifications and professional skills, which enable them to acclimatise to the culture of the Authority and to develop a long-term relationship with the organisation.

The Authority’s recruitment policy, therefore, incorporates the principles of equal opportunity, transparency and accountability. These principles support the selection of the most capable persons on the basis of merit and refer to the right of every individual to be given consideration for any job for which they are skilled and qualified to perform.
