The Ministry of Physical Planning and Infrastructure Development, through the Public Works Department, has announced the establishment and implementation of the Workers Employment Program.
This program, will run for six-weeks, in the various communities of the Turks and Caicos Islands, will provide temporary employment for a number of persons in the areas of verge cutting, street and beach cleaning and any other duties as assigned by the management team within the Public Works Department.
Hon Akierra Missick, Minister of PPID commenting on the program said, "the Workers Employment Program was developed to respond to the needs of persons who are finding it difficult to obtain sustainable employment in the construction and works industries. Despite the Ministry of PPID’s Covid Works Program best efforts, there is still a need to assist persons who may not be able to obtain and or access the resources to be able to competitively bid for TCIG’s Covid Works. This Program is another avenue to provide opportunity to those who are seeking employment during this time.”
The Workers Employment Program is now opened for enrollment for Turks and Caicos Islanders and British Overseas Territory Citizens. Persons who are interested in the Program should visit their nearest Public Works Department and/or District Commissioner office on their respective Island to register.
This program shall end on 31st March, 2022.
