About 172 #Fijians will now be able to provide for their family’s needs during these difficult times.
This was made possible after selection for employment opportunities through the Vuvale Partnership with Australia.Minister for Employment, Productivity and Industrial Relations Parveen Kumar said the pandemic has dramatically impacted on many Fijians including #Fiji‘s labour force and this window of opportunity during these challenging times, is a blessing.
While at the closing of the Pre-Departure Orientation Training for Pacific Labour Scheme Workers and presentation of PDO certificates, Minister Kumar added that, “Regional Workforce Management (RWM) has been impressed with Fiji’s professional and efficient processing of workers for recruitment and the performance of many of our Fijian workers, resulting in their representatives returning to Fiji for further recruitments in January and February 2020.”
These selected candidates have been scheduled to depart for Australia on 25th November 2020. Also present at the event was the Australian Deputy High Commissioner to Fiji, Ms Anna Dorney and the Permanent Secretary for Employment, Productivity and Industrial Relations Mr Osea Cawaru.
