Human Power Global (HPG) Sierra Leone LTD, an overseas recruitment and consultancy at Duck Street, Off Circular Road in Freetown, on Thursday, 3 May 2018 recruited over 1000 workers from Sierra Leone to be employed in different parts of the world.
General Manager of the HPG SL Limited, Mac Ivan E.B.O Pratt, explained that they focused their recruitment on masons, steel benders, shuttering carpenters, finishing carpenters, tilers, plumbers, electricians, and AC technicians, adding that they also strive to ensure that youth acquire basic skills.
He said the organisation has existed for over twelve years now and that they have helped so many young people in the country transform their lives, noting that in 2014 they recruited some 1,300 people from Sierra Leone to Qatar.
Pratt urged the recruits to understand that the contract is a better opportunity for them and that on or before 15 May, some people from Dubai would visit Sierra Leone to interview the employees.
“We don’t want to know if they are educated or not. We cater for everybody and we are not looking for any certificate,” he said.
The general manager said anybody who wants to be part of the job market should register at their office, and that those already recruited would be ferried to Lungi for a two week training programme that would prepare them for the task ahead.
He advised the new employees to behave well when they arrive in Dubai, adding that they must perform so as not to embarrass their overseas employers.
