HUNDREDS OF APPLICANTS
UNRRA POSITIONS IN CHINA Several hundred applications have been received in New Zealand for positions with Unrra in China. The chief personnel officer for Unrra at Sydney, Mr. G. C. Burton, with Messrs. T. R. Smith, of the Public Service Commissioner's Office, Wellington, and G. R. Laking, of the Prime Minister's Department, to-day interviewed a number of applicants in Auckland. The present selection is for a very limited number, who need to be specialists with a high standard of technical training and comprehensive experience in the fields of agricul- ' ture, medicine, engineering and wel- ' fare. Applicants who receive appoint- ' ments will work in the general ■ scheme which has been planned by ' Unrra in co-operation with the Chin--1 ese Government. Their main task will be to plan their relative sections of the relief and rehabilitation work in China and also to train other persons, chiefly Chinese nationals, in their own particular fields. It is possible that a wider range of applicants will be needed later to assist in the carrying out of this programme. The minimum period of service is one year, but it is preferred that applicants should be available for up to two years. Appointees to the staff of Unrra become international civil servants for the period of their service.
