Singapore People’s Party (SPP)’s Jose Raymond on Sunday (27 September) called on residents of Potong Pasir Single-Member Constituency (SMC) seeking new employment to send in their résumés through his website.
In a Facebook post yesterday evening, Mr Jose said that residents can also recommend the function to anyone living outside of the area who is currently seeking a new job after being retrenched.
“We managed to put another resident back to work, thanks to my network of friends and business owners who have pledged to provide support to residents who are in need of help, or who may have been laid off over the last few months as a result of COVID-19.
“I have also forwarded on the CVs which I have been receiving and I hope to help as many of you as possible. No promises, but I will do my best,” he said.
Mr Jose’s “Get Help” page can be accessed here.
Mr Jose also revealed yesterday that he will be collaborating with a developer “to create a marketplace so that residents in need can be linked up to residents or businesses who are giving”.
He noted that a business owner in Joo Seng “has also pledged to provide fresh supply of fish to any family in Potong Pasir SMC who may have lost their jobs and who are in need of fresh fish”.
Mr Jose contested in Potong Pasir SMC in this year’s general election. However, he lost to People’s Action Party (PAP)’s Sitoh Yih Pin, the latter of whom garnered nearly over 60 per cent of votes in the constituency.
