The Minister of Youth and Sports of Serbia visited the training attendees for scarce job positions in NIS

January 22, 2015

The training sessions have been implemented with the support of NIS, Ministry of Youth and Sports and City of Zrenjanin. NIS' need for scarce jobs such as welders and drilling and workover rig operators resulted in the cooperation between the Company, Ministry of Youth and Sports, City of Zrenjanin and Technical College of Professional Career Studies and professional staff training sessions for the required jobs. The professional staff training sessions started in late 2014 and it is planned that all attendees complete the training in the first quarter of 2015. The young attendees will have the opportunity to start working in NIS after they complete the training. "The training sessions which take place in this school are precious and provide professional staff with competences needed both by our company and this country. I am glad that the Ministry of Youth and Sports has recognized the importance of investing in these scarce professions. The training attendees will have the opportunity to start working in NIS after they complete the training. In this way, our company shows once again that the welfare of young people is the first on the list of priorities of our socially responsible business", said Mr Andrey Shibanov. The Projects, such as this project we implement in cooperation with NIS, adjust the qualifications of young people with the economy needs. I express my deep gratitude to this company, which invests in employment and training of young people. I hope that our cooperation will continue in the future, said the Minister, Mr Vanja Udovičić. The cooperation in the area of training is only a part of the broader agreement between NIS and Ministry of Youth and Sports, which takes place for the third year in a row. As a part of this cooperation, NIS has recruited 49 fellows of the Fund for Young Talents within the ministry and organized professional seminars and counselling for young people, as well as a summer camp for high school scholarship students.
