State-run National Employment Agency (NEA) will organise career fairs in provinces to allow Cambodian migrant workers who have returned from Thailand to seek job opportunities locally and apply directly.

The agency, under the Ministry of Labour and Vocational Training, said the career fairs is one of their plans announced for migrant workers who returned to the Kingdom to seek jobs locally.

The Labour Ministry announced recently that at least 20,000 jobs are prepared for migrant workers who returned from Thailand to apply with them not being able to return due to COVID-19 outbreak there.

In a statement, it said that those who want to apply for jobs can contact the Labour and Vocational Training departments near their area or at the ministry.

NEA director Hay Hunleng said to date no migrant workers have contacted the departments or applied for jobs after having completed their quarantine period.

“NEA and the Labour Ministry will continue disseminating information and create awareness among migrant workers on the job opportunities locally,” Hunleng said, adding that the job fairs to be held in communities, villages or commune will be held with COVID-19 SOPs put in place as a preventive and safety measure.

The jobs offered for migrant workers are in the manufacturing, garment, construction, service, and agriculture sectors.
