Tanzania to hire 44,800 workers, scraps job experience condition
The year financial year 2019/20 would be a boon to fresh graduates as the government reveals plans to employ a total of 44,800 workers during the year, the Parliament heard on Tuesday, May 28, 2019.
The job opportunities will specifically benefit Tanzania’s young men and women who possess the necessary qualifications, the Deputy Minister of State in the President’s Office (Public Service and Good Governance), Ms Mary Mwanjelwa said.
Ms Mwanjelwa was responding to a question from Ms Aida Khenan (Chadema Special Seats) who wanted to know efforts being taken to ensure that all of the country’s fresh graduates are absorbed into the job market.
Ms Khenan decried a tendency of attaching conditions of experience to the job vacancies.
“Where would a fresh graduate get the required experience?” she inquired.
But in response, Ms Mwanjelwa said the private sector should also be sensitized to create jobs.
