NCCS sets up new manpower unit to attract and groom talents

The National Council of Social Service or NCSS is setting up a new manpower unit to focus on attracting and grooming professional and leaders for the sector. 

This was announced at its annual conference today. 

The unit will develop a new manpower scheme, allowing talents to be exposed to a wide range of social services issues, organisations and job scopes. 

They will also be guided by mentors and given opportunities to learn from the social service veterans. 

Besides developing its own manpower, the NCSS will also roll out a new volunteer management framework. 

It will aim to put in place a more structured system for recruitment, training and deployment of volunteer resources. 

Giving an update on the Care & Share Movement launched last year, the NCSS says a total of 209 Voluntary Welfare Organisations have joined the movement. 

And just over $90 million have been raised so far. 

Some 330 fund-raising and volunteerism events, involving about 34,000 volunteers, will be organised as a lead up to Singapore's 50th Anniversary.
