SCAL is pleased to announce the launch of the pilot job matching programme endorsed by the Building & Construction Authority (BCA) which aims to support employers in the recruitment of suitable workers with the relevant trade skills and experience that matches their requirements via a cross-matching online platform of SCAL Construction Manpower Exchange (SCMX). This will reduce the occurrence of incompatibility of the trade skillsets of the workers, meet employers’ deployment needs and possibly any unnecessary repatriation of the worker by the employers. This pilot programme is in partnership with Skills Certification Centre (SCC) Progressive Builders Pte Ltd*.
The programme also aims to play a part in assisting workers reduce their migration costs (when they choose to work in Singapore) through facilitation by only approved agents in SCMX for direct job matching of relevant skills and competencies.
*Progressive Builders Pte Ltd’s local Bangladesh partner is Progressive Dhaka Technology Ltd.
