JobCentre Brunei (JCB) will showcase over 2,000 vacancies at its roadshow at The Mall, Gadong from November 6-8. This will included i-Ready vacancies in the private sector.

The three-day event will be held from 11am to 9pm, except for Friday, from 2.30pm to 9pm.

Visitors will be able to acquire information on JCB services, including registration into the JCB portal as well as the i-Ready Apprenticeship Programme and job matching services.

The Manpower Planning and Employment Council (MPEC) Secretariat will also share its ongoing initiatives and programmes, key information and updates on the latest available and in-demand jobs for the next five years. Their showcase will include information on the SkillsPlus Programme and the available Continuing Education Programme (CET) under the MPEC.

JCB actively works together with private sector companies to meet the companies’ manpower needs, primarily the facilitation of local recruitment through initiatives such as the JCB online platform, i-Ready Apprenticeship Programme, walk-in interviews, job matching services and the JCB Recruitment Day.

Since the start of this year, over 3,000 locals have been hired through JCB.

In adherence to the COVID-19 preventative measures set by the Ministry of Health, local jobseekers visiting the JCB booth are reminded to practise social distancing and to scan the BruHealth QR code prior to entering the premises.
