The Philippine government recently launched its Build, Build, Build infrastructure plan — an ambitious $180 billion infrastructure spending plan set to transform the Filipino economy. In line with the plan, it’s also launched Jobs, jobs, jobs: a portal for people of the Philippines to find employment within their country.
“The new portal will enhance our goal of reaching Filipinos here and abroad to join the government’s infrastructure push,” Transport Secretary Arthur Tugade said in a statement, reported by Inquirer.net.
The site will feature all construction companies involved in the government’s infrastructure projects and currently has over 11,000 roles listed in this sector. Most of the roles, however, tend to be lower-level jobs. At this point, there are only 15 roles listed as “Manager” roles.
The Build, Build, Build infrastructure plan aims to improve incomes in rural areas and create more jobs. The Filipino government is in the process of building 75 flagship projects including airports, railways, bus transits, roads and bridges, seaports and energy facilities.
