Trivandrum: State Labour Minister T P Ramakrishnan launched a unique single window facility for job-seekers and employers here on Wednesday. Portal has been conceived and developed by Kerala Academy for Skills Excellence (KASE) in an effort to bring together job seekers, employers and other job-providers on a single platform.

Speaking on the occasion, the Minister said that the government will conduct a study to assess setting up skill centres in the state, and will also expand the industrial internship programme. He added that KASE, in association with the Labour Commissionerate, will create a Labour Bank that will be linked to the jobs portal.   

The new portal, he said, “is an opportunity for job seekers to find vacancies from primary level to management level. With the launch of the portal, job seekers and job providers will be on the same platform. Vacancies of private firms will also be posted here.”

Dr. Sriram Venkitaraman MD, KASE and Director Employment and Training, who presided over the function, made a presentation highlighting the salient features of the portal at the function.

“In Phase I, employer and employee registration; job fairs; data analysis and job search and application using various parameters will be available. In the second phase, there will be a skill registry; digi locker facility; learning management systems; job portal and skill registry mobile app; and job blogs have been planned for the website,” he explained.

The website aims to service all types of qualified persons and job seekers from the state, and abroad. Unlike the usual job portals which address mostly private sector recruitments, the state Job Portal will address all recruitments, including Private, Public sector and semi Government openings, excluding KPSC recruitments.

Additional Chief Secretary, Labour and Skills Tom Jose delivered the Special Address on the occasion. while LinkedIn India Country Head Sehraj Singh elaborated on the association of the networking site with the portal. Others who attended the event include C Prathapmohan Nair, COO - KASE, and Rakhi Ravikumar, City Deputy Mayor.
