The SGUnited Jobs and Skills Placement Partners (SGUJS PP) initiative was announced by the Ministry of Manpower (MOM), with the aim of scaling up the placement of local jobseekers into job, traineeship and attachment opportunities amidst the current challenging labour market. It is intended to support the wider objective of the SGUnited Jobs and Skills Package to provide jobs, traineeships, and skills training opportunities to Singaporeans affected by the economic impact of COVID-19.
MOM and Workforce Singapore (WSG) will provide fees to appointed Placement Partners to help place local jobseekers who are mature, long-term unemployed, or persons with disabilities, into qualifying jobs, traineeships and attachments. Through this initiative, MOM and WSG hope to create additional pathways for vulnerable local jobseekers to access professional career matching services and opportunities suited to their skills and aspirations.
Adecco is the first such Employment Agency to be appointed as a Placement Partner through an open tender. The company’s appointment commences on 22 March 2021 for a duration of one year.
While any jobseeker can tap on the services offered by Adecco in their own capacity as a private Employment Agency, the Government has specifically appointed Adecco to assist with the placement of local jobseekers who fulfil one or more of the following criteria:
Adecco, as the appointed Placement Partner, will tap on its strong recruitment capabilities to career match and provide advisory to better showcase talent to employers. Adecco will also actively work with jobseekers to help them achieve greater success during their job search process. Finally, jobseekers will become part of the Adecco community in Singapore and will receive regular information on job opportunities, as well as career tips through workshops and Adecco’s digital platforms.
If you are a local jobseeker that falls within one of these three categories: mature jobseekers, long-term unemployed jobseekers or persons with disabilities and would like to seek placement services from Adecco, you can approach Adecco through here.
