About the programme
The JumpStart Programme is a paid (by employers) re-integration programme that runs for a period of 8 weeks. The Programme focuses on helping the female talents transit successfully back into the workforce. It runs concurrently with on-the-job training (carried out by the employer, based on job functions & role requirements).
Depending on the role, the work-trial period will range from 2 months - 6 months*. At the end of the trial period, candidates who perform well may be offered a permanent position (in a work-arrangement that is agreed upon, with the employer).
At the start of the Programme, participants will go through a condensed half-day on-boarding training to get them up to speed on the latest trending topics across industries. On the 1st day of work, a programme manager will be assigned to be present to ensure that the work-trial period starts off with clear goals.
Feedback & Appraisal Guidance
For every run, partnering employers will list the positions they have available.
Candidates are invited to apply for a specific position (submitting their resume
& application form). Shortlisted candidates will be invited to an interview with the employers.
After the interview process, employers will confirm their choices for selected candidate(s), to join the JumpStart Programme (JSP). During the entire JumpStart Programme, each participant will be assigned to the employer-firm which they have successfully been recruited into.
Each successful candidate is sponsored for the JSP by the company that they have successfully applied for.
