Ulu's departure leaves Ministry looking for new chief

The Ministry of Natural, Resources and Environment (M.N.R.E.) is on the look out for a new Chief Executive Officer following the departure of Ulu Bismarck Crawley to prepare for the 2021 General Election.

The position has been advertised in the Government-owned Savali Newspaper where the Public Service Commission has invited applications for the position.

The deadline is Monday 16 November 2020.

The position is on a contractual basis of three years and is advertised at the end of each three-year term, the advertisement reads.

All applications may be addressed to the Chairman of the Public Service Commission or it can be submitted through email.

Ulu's exit from the helm of the Ministry follows his reappointment in June this year. It would be Ulu's second term in office.

He was also the Chairman of the National Emergency Operations Centre (N.E.O.C.) which coordinates government plans and responses to disasters. 

Ulu brought to the Ministry a wealth of 25 years of experience in the environment sector.

He worked on many large projects as a Consultant for national, regional and international projects on the environment.

The 53-year old holds a Master on Environmental Law and a Postgraduate in the fields of Climate Change, Meteorology, Oceanography, Geographical Information System (G.I.S) and Remote Sensing.

Ulu had worked in the Apia Observatory (presently known as Meteorology Division).

His experience in regional organisations encompassed his employment with the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (S.P.R.E.P). 

He will now be contesting in the 2021 General Election from Faleata No. 4, under the flag of the ruling Human rights Protection Party (HRPP) against ALe Vena Ale and Lealasopo Leuii Vaitagutu.
