Launching of www.mauritiusjobs.mu on 18th June 2014
www.mauritiusjobs.mu is an interactive website aiming at addressing the present needs and exigencies of both jobseekers and employers. This website was launched on Wednesday 18 June 2014, by Honourable Minister Shakeel Mohamed, Minister of Labour, Industrial Relations and Employment at Cyber Tower 1, Ebène. The website is a joint initiative of the Ministry of Labour, Industrial Relations and Employment and the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) and is co-funded by the European Union and the Ministry of Labour and Social Policies of Italy.
www.mauritiusjobs.muwill replace the existing website of the Ministry launched in 2007, which no longer meets the expectations of the various stakeholders. In his address at the launching ceremony, Honourable Shakeel Mohamed, Minister of Labour, Industrial Relations and Employment, made an appeal to both jobseekers and employers to make optimal use of the website as regards job opportunities on the labour market. The Honorable Minister added that jobseekers will be able to apply for jobs available at both local and international levels. The website will surely be the appropriate forum for increasing interaction between jobseekers and employers to facilitate job matching.
The Honourable Minister also mentioned the various cooperation programmes his Ministry had initiated with other countries where Mauritians can benefit from effective placement and enhanced job opportunities, such as, the state of Qatar, the Republic of Italy and Canada with which agreements have been signed. Agreements are also under consideration with other countries. Moreover, he expressed his satisfaction that funds will be made available by the Ministry of Finance and Economic Development for the re-engineering of the Employment Service.
www.mauritiusjobs.mu is free of cost and accessible to intended users even on smart phones, tablets and laptops and will be linked to all the other related stakeholders dealing with employment issues. It will ensure better and active exchanges between the demand and supply on the labour market.
