A National Career Service Portal was launched by the Labour Ministry under the MoU with UK. This portal will serve as an intermediary between job-seekers and job-providers.
National Career Service Portal will connect the people seeking jobs with people/companies looking for employees to hire. It will act purely as an intermediary for persons with different needs to meet.
The portal, expected to be ready in 22 months, will aggregate all information regarding jobs, job-seekers, training and employers. Using SMS, call centers and email, it will help job seekers — from drivers to engineers — connect with the employers.

The UK Model
The UK government’s National Citizen Service (NCS) is an integrated free service that offers information and advice to everyone aged over 13 for training, learning and work opportunities. From career advice to writing good CVs, the service is available online, via web chat, on phone and face-to-face through multiple walk-in centers, including schools and colleges. The initiative is an upgrade of an earlier plan called Next Step that was launched to cater to those over 18 in 2010.
