- The website for the nation builders corps has been launched
- About 100,000 jobless graduates will benefit from the program
- Government says the program is only opened to those who completed national service
President of the republic, Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo has officially launched the Nation Builder's Corps.
The program will see about 100,000 university graduates employed in various sectors of the economy including the health, educational and financial sectors.
Speaking at the launch of the program, President Akufo-Addo revealed that employers under the program will be paid 700 cedis each in a monthly salary.
Vice president, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has revealed that the Builder's corps will deal with issues related to the economy. What this means is that all jobless graduates, just like the national service scheme, will post jobless graduates to the various places of work.
The government has emphasized that the nation builders corps will not be a permanent job for all. According to the deputy minister of education, Bright Wereko Brobbey, the program will not be job offer where employers will retire in.
"It is a transient program to help the jobless get something to do as they hope to migrate into the real job market," he revealed. Unemployment also remains a big challenge facing the labour market.
Figures from the Labour Force Survey Report show that more than 1.2 million persons from 15 years and older are estimated to be unemployed representing the total unemployment rate of 11.9%.
To apply for a job under the program, you must log in to the website: www.nabco.gov.gh. Meanwhile, the vacancies are only opened to graduates who have completed their national service.
