The SGUnited Traineeships programme aims to provide up to 21,000 traineeship opportunities to those who have recently graduated or will soon be graduating in 2019 and 2020. This will help them develop industry-relevant skills, notwithstanding the current economic climate, and boost their employability in preparation for the eventual recovery. By participating in the SGUnited Traineeships Programme, host organisations can gain access to a pool of fresh talent and be able to recruit experienced trainees when hiring picks up.
Organisations can come onboard as host organisations to bring in new graduates as trainees to support their business needs and will be able to tap on government support during the traineeship period in preparation of the economic recovery.
All host organisations must fulfil the following criteria:
Host organisations must be registered or incorporated in Singapore
Offer traineeships lasting up to 9 months (Traineeship must commence by 31st December 2020)
Provide clear Traineeship Descriptions and Development Plans that would provide trainees with meaningful developmental opportunities during the traineeship period, subject to approval by the appointed programme manager, Singapore Business Federation(SBF)
Co-fund 20% of the training allowance for the duration of the traineeship
The response from companies to provide traineeships has been very strong. An overwhelming number of organisations have indicated interest to offer traineeships that far exceed the number of fresh and recent graduates who are likely to fill them. Companies who are interested to offer traineeships, can consider taking on mid-career individuals on attachments through the SGUnited Mid-Career Pathways Programme – Enterprise Attachment track.
