DPI, Guyana, Thursday, January 9, 2020.

The Department of Labour’s Central Recruitment and Manpower Agency (CRMA) says it placed 500 persons into jobs in 2019.

Minister with responsibility for Labour, Keith Scott said the agency registered 2,122 persons last year with the 500 securing jobs in the agriculture, forestry, manufacturing, construction, mining, and transportation sectors.

He noted that job seekers are also counselled about etiquette on the job, mode of dress, speech and language, conduct, deportment, and timekeeping.

Minister Scott said his department would work to ensure every Guyanese had the opportunity to earn a decent wage.

“Persons from every region have access to the services CRMA has to offer, there are sub-offices in Regions 2,3,5,6 and 10. We are presently putting measures in place to establish offices in Regions 7,8 and 9.”

According to the minister, the labour market will be transformed and the department must keep up as the country progresses.
