Recruitment drive to target job seekers in several parishes now on

Ministry of Labour and Social Security, through its Labour Market and Information System (LMIS), is on a recruitment drive, to target young persons living in the parishes of Kingston, St Thomas and St. Catherine to help increase youth employment.

Minister of Labour and Social Security, Shahine Robinson said job seekers, such as cashiers, gas station workers, data entry clerks, administrative staff, security officers and accountants, are being encouraged to submit applications up to January 20, between 9 am and 2 pm, to the Electronic Labour Exchange (ELE) Department at 1F North Street in Kingston.

They may also download the LMIS app from the Google Play to register and submit applications.

“The Ministry is encouraging the use of the LMIS app and website among workers and employers.  Since the implementation of the Ministry’s roadshow series in 2019, there has been an increase in activities between employers and job seekers, through the LMIS skill-matching platform,” said Minister Robinson.

Recruiting sectors include business process outsourcing (BPO), fast food, and information technology.

Along with the application, applicants are required to submit two passport-sized photographs, academic certificates, résumé, Tax Registration Number (TRN), National Insurance Scheme (NIS) number and two letters of recommendation from a previous employer, a Justice of the Peace (JP) or a Minister of Religion.
