A toll-free number has been established for persons needing information on the Jamaica House Fellowship Programme.

The toll-free number is 1-888-429-5JHF (543), and can be accessed Mondays to Thursdays from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Fridays 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Acting Chief Technical Director in the Office of the Prime Minister Jacqueline Lynch-Stewart is encouraging individuals to call if they need information on the programme or to confirm receipt of their applications.

The Jamaica House Fellowship Programme was announced by Prime Minister the Andrew Holness during his Budget presentation earlier this year,  and is designed to provide the government with the services of some of Jamaica’s most promising young minds and high capacity managers.

The Fellowship is a paid, full-time, assignment with the Office of the Prime Minister for a period of two years. 

Under the programme, successful candidates will be guided by the Chief Technical Director in the OPM and will be involved in a wide range of high impact projects while interacting with Cabinet and other officials at the OPM in wider government service.

Lynch-Stewart explained that since the OPM began accepting applications for the fellowship programme on July 20, the response has been excellent.
