Proper selection of personnel for the Security Service of Ukraine as a prerequisite for the career growth of its employees
The current state of national legislation regarding the establishment of a list of requirements for candidates for service in bodies and units of the Security Service of Ukraine has been considered. The achievements of scholars on the essence of personnel selection, career, and labour legal personality of employees have been studied. The peculiarities of the legal personality of employees of the Security Service of Ukraine have been determined.
The requirements established by national legislation for the candidates to serve in the Security Service of Ukraine and the proper professional selection of the best of them are an important factor in staffing this law enforcement agency with professional employees who will be able to perform their duties efficiently and achieve the results planned by the management. The high-quality performance of the tasks faced by the bodies of the Security Service of Ukraine by its employees directly depends on properly organized labor stimulation, in particular, the possibility of career growth. The latter should be supported by an effective career management system, which is based on ensuring fair career development of employees by assessing their business qualities, performance and authority among colleagues.
The proposals and recommendations for improving national legislation in terms of establishing a list of requirements for candidates to serve in the bodies and units of the Security Service of Ukraine and career development of its employees have been provided. There is a need to amend Article 19 of the Law of Ukraine “On the Security Service of Ukraine” with the following provisions: first, on the need for candidates to be proficient in Ukrainian at the level determined in accordance with the Law of Ukraine “On ensuring the functioning of Ukrainian as the State language”, and second, on the need to test candidates for service using a polygraph, which will allow for more objective information about the candidate’s past, environment, positive and negative personal qualities. The Law of Ukraine “On the Security Service of Ukraine” should include a separate article entitled “Career in the Security Service of Ukraine”, which should define the term “career in the Security Service of Ukraine” and predict the specifics of a career in the Security Service of Ukraine.
