The Administration Unit’s main function is to provide support to the other Units within the Attorney General’s Chambers. The Unit co-ordinates all operational matters to ensure the efficient performance of Chambers.
As illustrated in the chart above, the Permanent Secretary serves as the Head of Unit with eight (8) staff members including:- an Accountant, a Human Resource Officer, an Assistant Accountant, a Clerk, a Clerk/Typist, a Receptionist and an Office Assistant/Driver. The position of Senior Executive Officer is currently unfunded.
The Covid-19 pandemic forced a change in the modality for execution of training programmes across the public service, this was no different for staff of Chambers. Our staff participated in various capacity building activities throughout the period including:
Socializing during the Covid-19 pandemic was exceedingly difficult, staff had to maintain physical distance and ensure masks were constantly worn during work hours. However, noting the psychological stress that was associated with COVID-19, we organized a Jounen Creole Brunch with a difference in October of 2020. Staff at the main office and Registry participated in this activity with strict adherence to office protocols. This activity culminated with "Karaoke" and the general sentiments was one of relaxation and fun.
Unfortunately, the Annual Staff Retreat could not be facilitated due to the COVID-19 restrictions, however plans are underway to explore a virtual option for this event. The existing protocols meant that the customary Christmas camaraderie and festivities were also not allowed, therefore on December 21, 2020 the managment of Chambers treated all staff to a buffet lunch. Staff also participated in a gift exchange during this period.
