English-speaking human resource available at Nicaragua
Nicaragua’s Free Zones Commission and PRONicaragua are organizing the “Opportunity Builder”, with the purpose of identifying the potential of bilingual human resource in the region, in order to develop their capacities and English level.
The event will be held at the BICU University in Bluefields, in the country’s South Atlantic Autonomous Region (RAAS, for its acronym in Spanish) from September 26th to the 28th.
The event, whose slogan is “Get ready to jump-start your career!” is free of cost; those interested in taking advantage of this opportunity only have to provide their personal information and participate in a short evaluation that tests their English comprehension, grammar and conversation skills.
The event is looking for people with proficient English in order to qualify for the “English Capacity Building Program”. This program’s goal is to create a sustainable professional development system which will create employment for young Nicaraguans, mainly in the business process outsourcing (BPO) industry.
Foreign companies represent an excellent opportunity for bilingual Nicaraguans to enter the labor market in a world-class work environment and with highly competitive salaries.
This is the first time this initiative is carried out in the Atlantic region of the country, making room for the development of foreign investment and job creation in that region.
This event is set under the “Young Nicaraguan Employment Building Program” through the creation of a sustainable professional development system, led by the Government of Nicaragua and the CNZF, co-financed by the Multilateral Investment, member of the Inter-American Development Bank Group (IDB), which will provide specialized English courses starting in the first trimester of 2013 at different English learning centers and universities in the cities of Managua and Bluefields. This effort is expected to generate approximately 3,000 additional jobs in the industry over the next three years.
