Called the SGUnited Jobs and Skills Centres, they'll be set up in 3 phases, with phases two and 3 slated for Aug 1 and 15 respectively.

Mrs Teo said: "You want to get these career providers highly accessible to citizens and send a strong message to job hunters that even if they must search for a new work, they'll get the support they need."

Job seekers can head to these satellite television centres to meet up a Workforce Singapore job ambassador who will provide career guidance on the SGUnited Jobs and Skills Package.

Near 100,000 opportunities - jobs, traineeships and skills training places - will be made by the Government beneath the bundle overseen by the new National Jobs Council.

Job hunters who require even more in-depth and tailored job coaching services will come to be referred by the career ambassador with their nearest career centre for follow-ups.

There are five career centres islandwide, such as for example Workforce Singapore's Career Connect and the National Trades Union Congress' Employment and Employability Institute.

Yesterday afternoon, Mrs Teo and Minister of Condition for Manpower Zaqy Mohamad visited a pilot satellite career center at Keat Hong Network Club in Choa Chu Kang, serving seeing as a test bed prior to the official opening on July 1.

MEETING CHANGING NEEDS

I'm mindful that the requirements of job seekers may change as the work market isn't static at this time... As a result, the way we offer direction and direction will be even more fine-tuned.

Mrs Teo noted that job services provided in these satellite television centres will come to be dynamic and additional refined over time.

"I'm mindful that the needs of job hunters may transformation as the work market isn't static at this time.

"The sectors that happen to be affected now are more hospitality-related but, down the road, the damaged sectors may go beyond these ones that people are already familiar with," she said.

"As a result, just how we offer direction and assistance will be even more fine-tuned."

She added that near 100 career ambassadors will be deployed over the 24 satellite centres.
