The SGUnited Jobs initiative seeks to create more than 40,000 jobs in 2020. This is a concerted effort as part of the SGUnited Jobs and Skills Package to provide employment opportunities for jobseekers and workers, including those affected by the COVID-19 situation, to match them to short-term jobs as well as longer-term jobs created. The initiative also seeks to help businesses that are recruiting for the eventual recovery, those with urgent short-term manpower needs and those with excess manpower.
Companies that are hiring can go to MyCareersFuture and post vacancies and hashtag: #SGUnitedJobs at the back of the job title (e.g. Driver #SGUnitedJobs). To do so, companies can follow this guide. WSG will also extend invitations to companies to participate in suitable Virtual Career Fairs (VCFs) based on the positions you have posted on MCF.
2. Partnering with Trade Associations and Chambers (TACs)
Companies can tap on the assistance of TACs to facilitate and expedite job matching for excess manpower or hiring of permanent and temporary positions. For more information on partnering TACs for the SGUnited Jobs Initiative, please refer to the FAQs.
All companies registered or incorporated in Singapore are eligible.
This includes Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs), Multi-National Corporations (MNCs), Trade Associations and Chambers (TACs), Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs), Non-Profit Organisations, and the public sector.
TACs can come on board to support the SGUnited Jobs Initiative by assisting in employment facilitation efforts amongst member companies. TACs will collect pre-requisite information from employers with manpower in demand or manpower in excess via the Jobs Order Template.
The Singapore Business Federation (SBF) is the central coordinator for the SGUnited Jobs Initiative which involves Business-to-Business (B2B) matching. SBF will work closely with other TACs to drive cross-TACs or cross-sector job matching.
TACs with limited manpower to assist with employment facilitation services can approach the Singapore Business Federation (SBF) to engage the services of the SGUnited Jobs HR Project Manager (HRPM)*. Enterprise Singapore has appointed SBF as the central coordinator for the SGUnited Jobs HRPM Programme. SBF can arrange for HRPMs to be deployed to TACs to support their employment facilitation efforts.
*Note: Limited number of HRPMs available, deployment subject to prioritisation based on considerations such as TAC membership size, extent of impact of COVID-19 on the TAC sector and expected volume of manpower demand/supply of the TAC sector.
