Help for job hunt overseas

Mere Naleba
Thursday, July 03, 2014

MEMBERS of the public can now seek employment overseas with the assistance of the Ministry of Labour, Industrial Relations and Employment following the launch of the Foreign Employment Services (FORES) yesterday.

Through the FORES members of the public can now be confident their employment contracts in international countries are safeguarded.

Established under the National Employment Centre Decree 2009, the service was launched by Minister for Labour Jone Usamate.

"The primary goal of the Foreign Employment Service is to provide quality human resource development service to unemployed persons and retirees to facilitate their absorption into decent overseas employment and alleviate poverty in Fiji," Mr Usamate said.

"In this manner our people can also acquire new skills and experiences that will add more value to their lives and families and contribute to national productivity."

Mr Usamate said the FORES would provide quality services that included aptitude assessment, counselling sessions, life skills training, employment skills training and pre-departure orientation skills training.
