Agency for Integrated Care (AIC) in Singapore launched a career portal last month to provide a one-stop marketplace for Intermediate and Long-Term Care (ILTC) employers and job seekers.


ILTC refers to a range of services to support the needs of people who are unable to care for themselves for long periods of time due to chronic health conditions.


The portal, developed in partnership with the ILTC Manpower Council and other stakeholders, provides comprehensive information on careers and training scholarships for the Community Care sector.


Job seekers can find out more about careers in ILTC, types of organisations they can join, view and apply for current job openings.


The portal current offers more than 100 jobs posted by over 45 hiring organisations.


Designed for various categories of job seekers including fresh graduates, mid-career switchers, back-to-work parents and retirees, the portal also provides information on study awards, scholarships and training programmes.


The portal was launched by Senior Minister of State for Health and Manpower Dr Amy Khor last month.


The government plans to build more than 100 eldercare facilities over the next five years. Between now and 2020, the industry needs 11,000 more professionals, particularly nurses, therapists, social workers and care support staff.
