German Ship Repair Jamaica Limited is seeking to recruit between 30 and 50 workers during a job fair on September 20 as it seeks to find skilled workers for its repair and maintenance shipyard being developed for Jamaica.
The job fair will be held in collaboration with the Ministry of Labour and Social Security.
Chief Executive Officer of the GSRJ, Colonel Martin Rickman, told JIS News that the shipyard will see Jamaica earning significant revenues from visiting international ships.
The retired colonel says the company is partnering with HEART/NSTA Trust and the Caribbean Maritime University to identify potential employees and expose them to the necessary skills training that is required to support the shipyard business.
German Ship Repair Jamaica Limited has been in existence for approximately seven years and has been repairing vessels that visit Jamaica's ports.
