    Executive Staff FAQ and Applications
    [​IMG]
    What is the Executive Staff?
    Executive Staff is the body of residents and citizens that are employed by one or more of the Ministries of the Executive Government. It is essentially The North Pacific's equivalent of a civil service. The Executive Staff provides a direct path for residents to get involved in the Executive Government. It is ideal both for new residents who want to gain experience in how the government operates, and for experienced citizens who are looking to contribute to the region though the Executive.

    What Ministries are there and what do people do in them?
    There are currently six Ministries, of which five employ residents through the Executive Staff: Home Affairs, Foreign Affairs, WA Affairs, Communications, and Culture. The names alone should provide a rough idea of what each Ministry does. In the second part of this post, there are details about the various job opportunities within each Ministry.

    How do I join?
    Glad to see that you decided to join! Here are the steps you need to follow:

    Step 1: Meet the requirements. There are only two and very simple requirements. First, you need to have a nation in The North Pacific. Second, you need to have an account registered in this forum. And that's all.

    Step 2: Make sure to read the second part of this post. There, you will find detailed descriptions of the various jobs available within each Ministry. By consulting those, you can decide which Ministry interests you the most.

    Step 3: Fill out an application and post it in this thread. The application is as follows:
    Code:
    Nation in The North Pacific:
    Ministry you are interested in joining:
     (Optional) Previous experience in this area of government:
    You can apply for more than one Ministries by submitting multiple applications. Once you have applied, the Delegate will review your application and inform you of the result, usually within 48 hours.

    How do I show off that I am in the Executive Staff?
    Excellent question! All members of the Executive Staff get to display the following cool banners in their signatures, depending on which Ministry or Ministries they are a member of. If you are a member of multiple Ministries, you are strongly encouraged to use the small versions of the banners.



    Ministry of Home Affairs

    Ministry of Foreign Affairs

    Ministry of Communications

    Ministry of Culture

    Ministry of World Assembly Affairs

    Are there other ways to get involved in the Government?
    We strongly encourage you to apply for citizenship. This allows you to vote in elections and stand for office. It also allows you to legislate, by taking part in the Regional Assembly. In addition to legislating, this also allows you to vote in elections and stand for office. You can look here for more details.

    If you are interested in learning about the exciting aspect of the game that is military gameplay, you can join the North Pacific Army. By becoming a member, you can help protect the region and our interests abroad. You can learn more about it here.

    If you are interested in the World Assembly, you can join Ministry of World Assembly Affairs. There, we discuss and vote on all resolutions going to vote, and we also discuss and provide feedback on drafts. You can learn more about it here.

    I still have questions!
    If you have questions about the Executive Staff in general, feel free to contact Delegate El Fiji Grande. If you have questions about a specific Ministry, then do not hesitate to contact the respective Minister---they are listed below next to each Ministry. If you have questions about citizenship or the North Pacific Army, please look here and here, respectively.


    Job Opportunities Within Each Ministry

    [​IMG]
    Ministry of Home Affairs - Minister Robespierre

    Recruiter of nations in The North Pacific: The North Pacific has over 10,000 nations, but only a few dozen of them are active on the forum. One of the functions of the Ministry of Home Affairs is to encourage as many of these nations as possible to join the forum, so that they can enjoy the full experience of The North Pacific. As a Recruiter, you will be expected to maintain a regular presence on the Regional Messaging Board, where you will be posting to promote forum membership and involvement. Furthermore, you will be contacting nations by telegram, to invite them to join the forum and assist them with any issues they may encounter in the process. Good communication skills are required for both of these functions. You will also need to make a considerable time commitment towards watching and participating in the game-side aspects of The North Pacific. Of course, this also means that you get to engage with the entire nation population of The North Pacific, which as you will discover is a very enjoyable experience.

    Forum Mentor: Our forum receives more than a dozen new members a week and these members often need help learning about the opportunities and the things to do in The North Pacific. Our mentoring program assigns each of our mentors to a few mentees twice a week. You will get to meet new nations every week and will find it to be a very rewarding experience. Applicants should be long-standing and experienced members of the region or be willing to take on more responsibility than they are normally used to. We have 2 spots available so apply soon if you want to become a part of this program.

    Ministry of Foreign Affairs - Minister McMasterdonia

    Ambassador in the Diplomatic Corps: The Ministry of Foreign Affairs maintains a presence for The North Pacific abroad by establishing embassies in other regions. Each embassy is run by its own ambassador, and by joining the Diplomatic Corps you can also become one. As an ambassador, you will be a diplomat representing The North Pacific abroad. You will be expected to deliver any materials provided to you by the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Delegate, and keep an eye out for anything in your assigned region that may be of interest to The North Pacific. Of course, you will need to conduct yourself in a manner appropriate to a diplomat at all times. Being an Ambassador is a great way to get exposure to different regional cultures, meet new people, and make a name for yourself interregionally.

    Team Leader, Mentor: An internal role which is appointed by the Minister in communication with the Delegate and Senior Diplomats, these are experienced diplomats and Ambassadors who are ready to move up the ladder and begin passing on their knowledge to newer Diplomats. A demonstrable knowledge of foreign affairs and diplomacy will be essential in order to achieve this position and subject to an interview with senior ministry staff and passing vetting procedures.

    Senior Diplomat: This is a senior leadership role within the executive staff that will advise on diplomatic issues, treaty viability, treaty-law and other high-level foreign affair and diplomatic matters. They will set the curriculum for mentoring, will oversee assessments and will advise the government on foreign affairs matters including embassies. This is an internally appointed role subject to application and vetting.

    Staff Writer in The Northern Lights: The Northern Lights is the official newspaper of The North Pacific, and it is a global publication with a focus on relevant and timely articles.

You will be expected to submit an article of roughly 1250 words once every two months. Your articles should include relevant and interesting analysis. You can expect that your articles will be edited by senior Editorial Staff. This is done to enhance the professionalism of the newspaper and to provide a learning experience for newer writers.

    Staff Writer in The North Star: The North Star is a monthly collection of reports from The North Pacific, and serves as a global publication with a focus on events relating to The North Pacific that will be distributed as an update to our foreign embassies. As a Staff Writer in The North Star, you will be writing reports in specific subject areas, e.g., world assembly updates, judicial news, legislative affairs, election reviews, and so on.

    Ministry of Culture - Minister Prydania

    Event Management: Events are a huge part of the Ministry of Culture! They require careful planning and implementation, new ideas, and are a creative outlet for TNP to show it's fun side.

    Games and Entertainment: If you are interested in hosting games and activities, such as movie watching, online games, awards, seminars, and everything in between this is the area for you! Games and Entertainment is also responsible for the University and the Games and Arts subforums.

    Roleplay Events and Promotions: This subsection of the Culture Ministry is responsible for promoting the offsite roleplay community in-game, showcasing the work of our RPers, providing supporting infrastructure to the RP moderators and organising roleplay events.

    Graphics: Graphics folks should be available to design logos, banners, and other images on an as-needed basis. Work will likely be intermittent and highly varied, so flexibility is good to have. Examples of prior work highly desirable - please send via PM!

    Ministry of World Assembly Affairs - Minister TlomzKrano

    World Assembly Legislative League Staff: The World Assembly Legislative League (WALL) is our World Assembly collaboration effort with Balder, The International Democratic Union, Europeia, and Europe. The WA Affairs Ministry of each region utilize this alliance to expand our influence on WA matters across NationStates. The Ministry has a World Assembly 101 course available - covering both the General Assembly and the Security Council - to improve the knowledge base of residents within TNP. (Note: Ministry membership is not required to take the WA 101 coursework.) The Ministry will aim to make the TNP forums a location where authors come to draft their resolutions, and in order to encourage such efforts, Ministry members are encouraged to offer constructive criticism and other feedback on these drafts. As the members of The North Pacifics WALL staff represent the region on the international stage, they are appointed by the Minister from existing World Assembly Advisors.

    World Assembly Advisor: The World Assembly can be a complex organization to understand, especially for newer players or for those that are less familiar with the World Assembly, in general. The Ministry of WA Affairs seeks to offer voting recommendations on each WA resolution to come to vote and also distributes Information for WA Voters to all WA nations within The North Pacific. Members of the Ministry of WA Affairs are encouraged to participate in the aforementioned WA 101 courses, so they can offer informed opinions in our regional voting threads.[/tr]

    As a note, the Minister of Communications is away for a couple of days, so those of you applying there will need to wait for his return.
