22,000 jobs up for grabs at Su­bic fair

Sun.Star Pampanga - - TOPSTORIES! -

SU­BIC BAY FREEPORT— More than 22,000 job va­can­cies are up for grabs for skilled job­seek­ers in the day-long jobs car­a­van slated on Fe­bru­ary 9, Satur­day, at the Su­bic Bay Metropoli­tan Au­thor­ity (SBMA )gym­na­sium in Su­bic, the la­bor depart­ment an­nounced over the week­end.

La­bor Sec­re­tary Sil­vestre Bello III said the job fair will be open to all job seek­ers in Cen­tral Lu­zon and nearby ar­eas who have skills in con­struc­tion and re­lated fields.

“With about 77 com­pa­nies of­fer­ing more than 22,000 va­can­cies, we are open­ing the jobs car­a­van to all skilled job­seek­ers,” Bello said.

The job fair, part of the Build Build Build in­fra­struc­ture pro­gram of the gov­ern­ment, was orig­i­nally meant for work­ers of Korean ship­builder Han­jin Heavy In­dus­tries who lost their jobs and those about to be laid off.

Bello said the par­tic­i­pat­ing com­pa­nies are in need of over 22,000 skilled work­ers mostly as car­pen­ters, pipe-fit­ters, steel men, welders, scaf­fold­ers, elec­tri­cians, painters, ma­sons and la­bor­ers. He said that the num­ber of com­pa­nies may fur­ther in­crease so as the job va­can­cies to be of­fered.

“We are thank­ful to the com­pa­nies for mak­ing avail­able op­por­tu­ni­ties not only for skilled work­ers in Cen­tral Lu­zon but also in sur­round­ing prov­inces. These work­ers are mostly needed as we push the Build Build Build in­fra­struc­ture pro­gram of the Duterte gov­ern­ment,” Bello sai d.

Al­ready, the Depart­ment of La­bor and Em­ploy­ment (DOLE) has pro­filed close to 3,000 Han­jin work­ers who may be qual­i­fied for the var­i­ous open­ing.

A pre-regis­tra­tion of all other ap­pli­cants will be held on Fe­bru­ary 4, 6 and 7 at the SBMA Gym from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm. Job va­can­cies may be viewed at build.gov.ph.

The jobs car­a­van is a col­lab­o­ra­tive un­der­tak­ing of DOLE and the Su­bic Bay Metropoli­tan Au­thor­ity, with full sup­port of the Build Build Build agen­cies – the Depart­ment of Pub­lic Works and High­ways, Depart­ment of Trans­porta­tion, Depart­ment of Fi­nance, Depart­ment of Bud­get and Man­age­ment, Na­tional Eco­nomic De­vel­op­ment Au­thor­ity and the Bases Con­ver­sion De­vel­op­ment Au­thor­ity. Also in sup­port of the project are the Depart­ment of Trade and In­dus­try and the Clark De­vel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion.
