DILI, 16 august 2023 (TATOLI) – Timorese migrant worker candidates, men and women, with a total of 2,508 prospective workers, will take an English language test before becoming part of the System Work Ready Pool (WRPs).

The State Secretariat of Vocational and Employment Training (SoSVTE) through the National Directorate for Foreign Workers (DNEE) revealed that 2,508 prospective workers were the result of screening for 14,000 candidates. Last June, the candidate met the criteria for the first stage and was ready for the interview stage.

“This test is part of the initial stages to enter the Work Ready Pool (WRP) system and later can be followed by the PALM Scheme (Pacific Australian Labor Mobility) process,” The National Director for Foreign Workers, Filomeno Soares, explained in a press release accessed by Tatoli, today.

The schedule for the testing process will be carried out from August 21 to September 6, 2023, at 07:30 a.m. at the Excelsior Resort, Pantai Kelapa, Dill, Timor-Leste.

It was stated that the names of 2,508 prospective workers had been published on the official DNEE-SEFOPE website, and candidates were asked to bring complete documents such as passports and voter cards (Kartaun Eleitoral).

Registration for new workers to Australia online started on March 6 and ended on March 17, 2023, and has received 55,346 applicants, consisting of 34,435 men and 21,011 women.
Until mid-June, SEFOPE through DNEE had screened 14,000 candidates, of whom only 2,508 met the criteria for the next stage.

Previously, the Director General of SEFOPE, Paulo Alves, ensured that his party would immediately carry out further screening for more than 41,000 candidates who were still in the first phase of document selection.

The recruiting industry offers a wide range of industries, such as Meat Manufacturing, Agriculture/gardening, Fishing, production/processing lines (general), Hospitality/Accommodation, Trade, Specialized Cleaning Jobs, Electrical Engineers, Drivers, and Construction.

This registration helps DNEE select relevant candidates for semi-skilled opportunities under the PALM Scheme and complete the Work Ready Pool system in preparation for future recruitment.
