Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) Graduate Trainees Career Opportunities

Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) was established by an Act of Parliament in 1995 for the purpose of enhancing tax administration. KRA is the principal revenue collection agent for the Government of the Republic of Kenya.

The Authority is committed to quality service delivery to the business community, taxpayers, revenue collection agents, the general public and the government. The vision of the Authority is to be 'the leading Revenue Authority in the world respected for Professionalism, Integrity and Fairness'.

To achieve its mandate, KRA engages the services of highly qualified professional personnel.

The Authority is therefore seeking suitable candidates who can adapt to this challenging task to fill the following positions:

Graduate Trainees

The Authority invites suitable Kenyan Citizens for consideration in Kenya Revenue Authority's Graduate Trainee programme.

Successful candidates will be required to undergo an intensive training in all theoretical and practical aspects of modern Tax Administration and managerial skills for a period of 24 months.

Applicants must be aged 27 years or below and be degree holders from recognised Universities.

Note:

Only applicants who graduated in the last three calendar years will be considered, with preference being given to more recent graduates.

Those with Information & Communications Technology (ICT) related degrees should not apply since recruitment of ICT graduates is handled under a separate programme.

General computer skills in Windows Operating System (Windows XP and Office Suite etc), office automation tools (Microsoft Word, Excel, Power Point etc.) and use of internet will be an added advantage.

Applications in own handwriting enclosing a detailed curriculum vitae, copies of academic and professional certificates and testimonials should be sent to the under mentioned to be received not later than 28th February, 2011.

A daytime telephone contact should also be provided.

Senior Deputy Commissioner, Human Resources
Kenya Revenue Authority
Times Tower, Haile Selassie Avenue
P.O Box 48240 - 00100 Nairobi

Note: Canvassing will lead to automatic disqualification.

Only qualified shortlisted candidates will be contacted

It is disappointing that in this age of email,KRA is still asking for hand written applications.....
When will you wake up??Its shameful.

Anonymous said...

we are tired of applying for the programme because it is a mere formality.those 2b taken are already known and the interviews are meant for public relations purposes only.please continue giving the opportunities to well connected individuals who are willing to cough out huge sums of monies to bribe at the expense of qualified though poor kenyans.

fardosa said...

yea very disappointing,you guys already knw the pple you are going to take,so will you pliz stop advertising these appliying

KRA, you are the most corrupt organization, the leading infact! y shul u allow politicians to bring a list of names for your recruitees, u already knw whom to take so i knw some of us are gualified but we r left out since we knw nobody there. soon your sins will cm out in public. shame on u.nowarnder u send your hooligans to kill an innocent person who was fightin 4d truth 'Joseph Cheptarus', one of your own. u will all go hell.

RSS: Attention!...total applicants 2011 are 24,171 positions available are 193
The board shall be sitting on the afternoon of 6th march 2011.
thereafter the shortlisting process shall commence.

Well, guys, this is the Kenya we live in. Not only KRA, but lots of other organizations as well. It is in fact more disheartening that some of those who occupy those offices supposedly represent the interests of the public at large. A case in point is The Engineers Registry Board. There mandate is to register engineers wishing to practice in Kenya. Today they have gone against the constitution and they now behave as if they train engineers.

NRC(Norwegian refugee council) i attended two consecutive interviews and the last one we were three candidates but out of the three of us that were interviewed no one was taken this was post of logistics assistant in dadaab. am wondering why NRC was wasting our time and resources if they knew they had somebody in mind. sources say somebody who failed in the first interview was picked what merit was used.because a politician says this pple are not from dadaab that is reason we were not able to get the job cause the area mp came with his person shame on NRC when you advertise plse indicate NO JOIN THE INTERVIEW.B FOR PEOPLE WHO PASS

You guyz trust in God who is greater en powerful than any man/woman known to you.

Anonymous said...

Maybe God would listen if we sacrificed the people involved in this farce. Personally, I don't know what I'd like better; to see them die as burnt offerings or to see them lose their positions on account of their being deceased.

(I'll toss a coin on this one. Heads say burnt offerings would give more pleasure).

It's heads, gentlemen!

it's high tym truth shud be told. if kra knew it had recruited people oredy, y then were they waisting our tym.anyway i was there on tue 10/05/11 en they sed a list will be out by fri or latest by monday. wish you success.

Anonymous said...

There is no need for all this negativity talk yet 24,191 people applied,failure is part of life.pray and try harder maybe you will succeed,nothing good comes easy.patience pays.talking nonsense results to more failure in many job recruitments.if you do not have the necessary qualifications pliz start your own job coz most billionnaires are self employed

Anonymous said...

u guyz we cant wait forever

Anonymous said...

how much money do they pay during the training program and if much can they increase beause of the waiting

mbinya said...

As for me, I shall wait for as long as it takes becoz I know its not about KRA its about God, becoz for sure who is the Giver of the job if not God? And all things work together for good for those who Love Him including this delay.
