More job seekers are finding employment through the career centres of their local community development councils (CDCs), with 3,300 people placed in the second quarter of this year.

This is a 14 per cent rise from the 2,900 placed in the first quarter of this year, and a 23 per cent increase compared with the corresponding quarter last year.

Reasons cited include a strong hiring trend by employers and greater public awareness of the jobs and training available through the CDCs and the Workforce Development Agency.

Mayor of North East District Teo Ser Luck said the North East CDC was increasing its outreach through the launch of its job hub in Hougang this year.
