The PIVOT programme, launched yesterday by NTUC, is a one-stop service to help professionals, managers and executives (PMEs) in Singapore with network building, emotional support and re-skilling to better prepare them to be transited into a new job role or industry.
With this new initiative, job seekers can seek guidance from a strong community of over 60 industry volunteers across 16 industries to provide peer-to-peer support and share industry insights. The volunteers are part of the extensive NTUC network comprising professional associations under U Associate programme (U Associates).
A series of monthly industry talks and networking opportunities will guide the PMEs in identifying their career options, primed with training programmes to keep up with the shifts in required skills and increase their skills inventory, leading to enhanced employment and career opportunities offered by the labour movement network and beyond.
Suitable for PMEs who are actively looking for job or planning a career switch; the programme allows job seekers to learn more about future skills and jobs to gain a head start in future-proofing their careers.
