I'm not sure whether they do it at specific times of the year but the vacancies are listed on http://psc.govmu.org website.

Criteria:

  • You should be at least 19
  • Candidates should possess a Cambridge School Certificate with at least a pass in English Language, French Language and Mathematics or Principles of Accounts or passes obtained on one certificate at the General Certificate of Education “Ordinary Level” either (i) in five subjects including English Language, French Language and Mathematics or Principles of Accounts with at least Grade C in any two subjects or (ii) in six subjects including English Language, French Language and Mathematics or Principles of Accounts with at least Grade C in any one subject or an equivalent qualification acceptable to the Disciplined Forces Service Commission

Also worth noting, candidates should not bear tattoos on visible parts of their body while wearing uniform/uniform with short sleeves.

I suppose for the Special Mobile Force (SMF), similar announcement will be made on their website.
