Rojgari Services

Rojgari Services bridges the gap between the supply and demand-sides of the labour market. It empowers Nepali job seekers with information and services from career counselling, soft skills training, vocational training – on-the-job at employers or via training institutes – to employment match-making. In the process, it helps Nepali companies and industries find job-relevant skilled human resources.

Launched in August 2019, UKaid Skills for Employment Programme’s (सीप) and Rojgari’s partnership is enabling job seekers and employers to avail accessible, affordable services through revamped, user-friendly web and mobile-based applications Rojgari Pasals, brick and mortar employment shops, opened in Birgunj, Province 2, and Nepalgunj, Province 5; and Ghumti Rojgari Pasal, a mobile employment shop, able to reach underserved villages and people, especially women, in Province 2 and 5. 

In response to COVID-19, to facilitate stronger livelihood support for returnee migrants, Rojgari and UKaid सीप launched the ‘अब देशमै छ रोजगारीʼ Campaign in July 2020, which is designed to reach and register migrant returnees and forge stronger collaborations with various stakeholders of the skilling, employment, and entrepreneurship system. The goal is to reach and empower at least 10,000 disadvantaged youth, especially returnee migrants, with connections to skilling, jobs, and enterprise support services available from various market actors. In the process, Rojgari Services is also working with industries/employers to improve their understanding of and investments in good human resource practices such as skilling and Gender and Social Inclusion (GESI)-intentional recruitment and retention practices.
