This year, Jobs Bank, run by statutory board Workforce Singapore (WSG), will be integrated with the Skills Future Singapore-run Individual Learning Portfolio.
The move comes at a time of muted employment growth amid a slower economy. It also follows recommendations by the Committee on the Future Economy to integrate both portals. The committee released its report last Thursday.
The committee suggested that the sluggish Singapore jobs market could be improved by providing people with better skills and training plus work opportunities that would allow them to utilize these skills.
The integration is also in response to feedback provided by Jobs Bank users.
