‘Max Talent’ Place-and-Train Programme for PMEs and SMEs
The recruitment of right talent is a critical success factor in a highly competitive business environment. This is especially true for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in Singapore. SMEs can offer many interesting and challenging career opportunities for Professionals, Managers and Executives (PMEs), a fact that is often not known to some job seekers.
Max Talent is a two-year place-and-train programme, administered by the Association of Small and Medium Enterprises (ASME) and supported by the Singapore Workforce Development Agency (WDA).
The programme will assist PMEs to secure gainful employment and enhance the human resource capabilities of participating SMEs. As the programme partner for Max Talent, ASME will provide guidance and assistance to PMEs and their SME employers through this facilitated employment journey.
