Since George Kinoti has left his job as Director of Criminal Investigation, the National Police Service Commission (NPSC) has put out a call for applicants.
The commission listed seven qualifications for the position in an ad published on Thursday, September 29.
Candidate qualifications include, but are not limited to, being a citizen of Kenya and holding a degree from a Kenyan institution that has been established as having intellectual standards.
The commission will choose a candidate with relevant experience in management, law, economics, change management, finance, governance, or public administration based on their expertise in these areas.
Finally, the candidates will need to fulfill the leadership and integrity standards outlined in Chapter Six of the Constitution of Kenya, 2010.
As part of the application procedure, applicants will also have to clear themselves with the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA), the Higher Education Loans Board (HELB), and the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC).
Applicants will also need to provide a good conduct certificate from the DCI and a credit reference bureau (CRB) clearance in order to be considered for the position.
The application deadline established by NPSC is October 6. After that date, the organization will begin the screening process.
Days after President William Ruto stated that Kinoti had submitted his resignation to his office, the commission published its advertisement.
