Two new centres set up by NTUC
Searching for a job may become easier with the new UPME Centre set up by the National Trades Union Congress or NTUC.
Professionals, Managers and Executives or PMEs seeking jobs, professional upgrading and career development will be able to do so conveniently online or at the one-stop centre housed at the new Employment and Employability Institute or e2i in Jurong.
Labour Chief, Lim Swee Say, announced this as the Labour Movement wrapped up its month-long National Day celebrations at a final dialogue session today (03/09).
Mr Lim says the centre will provide better information on job openings, as well as identify and rectify any potential mismatch between job and worker.
He added that a national job bank would be set up to facilitate this.
The UPME Centre is open to all PMEs, including non-union members.
But non-union members would not enjoy the same privileges that union members do.
Besides the UPME, a second centre will also be set up to help low-wage workers.
Mr Lim says the centre, named U Care Centre, will champion the well-being of these workers and voice their concerns.
Both centres will be ready in the coming months.
