SOME 480 youths have received offers of jobs from the Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) as daily wage workers for a one-year period.

This was done under the MYJobs@Wilayah programme and covers six sectors, namely service, construction, maintenance, cleaning, manufacturing and packaging.

Federal Territories Minister Tan Sri Annuar Musa said the programme was one of five initiatives under the ministry to help the urban poor, especially youths, who were hit hard financially by the Covid-19 pandemic.

“Many young people are struggling to find employment, while some have lost their jobs due to this crisis.

“Hopefully, this programme will open up more job opportunities for them to earn an income,” he said.

Annuar said that DBKL was looking to fill 500 vacancies across various departments.

“A total of 479 positions

have been filled according to their qualifications; SPM (328), diploma (134) and degree (17),” he said.

The minister said this after giving the offer letters to 141 new workers at Menara DBKL 1 in Jalan Raja Laut, Kuala Lumpur.

Also present were his deputy Datuk Seri Dr Edmund Santhara Kumar and mayor Datuk Nor Hisham Ahmad Dahlan.

These batch of workers held SPM qualifications and started work on July 15.

Among positions they filled include administrative assistants, computer technicians, librarians, mechanics and electricians.

“In August, 83 candidates of diploma and degree qualification will start working,” said Annuar.

Seventy-eight posts such as computer technicians, land administrative, engineering, agriculture, information technology, surveyor and landscape architect assistants will be filled by diploma candidates.

Meanwhile, five positions including administrative psychology officers would be filled by degree holders.
