MIT Successfully Hosts First “Let’s Talk Employment” Initiative And Launches The Government’s Unemployment E-Registry

PR – Close to 160 young men and women turned up at  the Grenada Trade Centre on Saturday 11th March 2023, to meet with potential employers in  an event organized by the Ministry of Mobilisation, Implementation and Transformation (MIT). Present at the event were representatives from Geo. F. Huggins Ltd., Silver Sands,  SonRise Construction Inc, Clear Harbor, and Pest Boys. 

Whilst the event gave people immediate access to employment by the companies present, it  also set the foundation for future collaboration and partnership with the private sector. Hon.  Andy Williams and Permanent Secretary, Ms. Peron Johnson, from the Ministry of  Mobilisation Implementation and Transformation were supported by Ministers Cornwall,  Redhead and La Crette, who not only acknowledged the significance of the exercise, but also pledged continued support for future initiatives geared towards transforming the  socioeconomic conditions of Grenadians. Their involvement signals the turn of a new chapter  into the quality and level of transformative development that Grenada and its citizens can  realize. 

Minister Williams passionately encouraged all participants to access and make use of every  opportunity afforded. Participants also benefitted from a timely and appropriate career  coaching session by Ms. Dawne Mark, and professional development training from other  employers present at the event. 

Minister Williams and the MIT intend to take the ‘Let’s Talk’ to other parishes, including Carriacou and Petite Martinique, to allow all Grenadians the opportunity to participate in the  transformation journey.  

Citizens are encouraged to continue to follow MIT’s social and other releases to keep abreast  of development trends and activities.
