The SGUnited Mid-Career Pathways programme was introduced to support mid-career individuals to widen their professional networks and gain new, in-demand skills while preparing for more permanent jobs in the future.
Host organisations can take on mid-career individuals who bring with them a wealth of work experience on attachments. Upon completion of the attachment, host organisations may consider hiring well-performing individuals as permanent employees when business conditions improve and when they have greater confidence to hire.
The Government will fund 80% of the training allowance, while the host organisation funds the remaining 20% for the programme duration. The monthly training allowance provided may vary depending on the scope of the attachment.
All host organisation must fulfil the following criteria:
a. Host organisation must be registered or incorporated in Singapore;
b. Offer attachments lasting up to 9 months (Attachments must commence by 31st March 2021)
c. Provide clear attachment descriptions and development plans that would provide mid-career individuals with meaningful developmental opportunities during the attachment period, subject to approval by the appointed programme manager.
d. Co-fund 20% of the training allowance for the duration of the attachment
Host organisations can only take on Singaporeans and Permanent Residents for this programme, with the exception of recent graduates who should apply for SGUnited Traineeships instead1.
