Career Support Programme

What is Career Support Programme (CSP)?

The Career Support Programme (CSP) is a limited wage support programme to encourage employers to offer suitable job opportunities to mature Singaporean Professionals, Managers, Executive and Technicians (PMETs) to tap on the wealth of experience they may bring to the workplace. Employers must commit to offering structured/approved training to the PMETs recruited and fulfill other eligibility criteria.
CSP will be piloted from 1 October 2015 for a period of two years and is part of the suite of career services offered by Workforce Singapore (WSG) Career Centres and e2i (Employment and Employability Institute).

CSP is part of the Adapt and Grow initiative to encourage employers to support Singaporeans in making career transitions.

How will CSP benefit me as a PMETs?

Under the CSP, mature Singaporean PMETs job seekers will receive more opportunities to access jobs that are mid-level and above. To facilitate their transition into new job roles, these PMETs will undergo structured on-the-job training or external training. These training programmes will have to be approved by WSG.

Eligible individuals are also welcome to search for their own jobs and can enter a new sector or remain in the same sector, as long as they have registered with WSG Career Centres or e2i.
