The Institute for Labor Studies Acting Deputy Executive Director Patrick Patriwirawan, Jr. is among the 35 candidates conferred with Career Executive Service eligibility through Career Executive Service Board (CESB) Resolution Number 1494 dated 09 September 2019.
The Career Executive Service is the ‘third level’ or the managerial class in the group of career positions in the Philippine civil service. The CES was created by Presidential Decree No. 1 to "form a continuing pool of well-selected and development-oriented career administrators who shall provide competent and faithful service." The CES is also a public personnel system separate from that of the first two levels of positions in the Philippine civil service.
