WHA "E-Job Market" Initiative Matches WHA Customers with Job Seekers


Bangkok, 14 July 2020 - WHA Industrial Development Plc. (WHAID), the country's leading developer of industrial estates, is announcing the launch of the WHA E-Job Market, an online platform that will match its customers' recruitment needs with the qualifications of job seekers.

As part of WHA Group's CSR initiatives, the E-Job Market program is easily accessible through the company's website. It will enable job seekers, especially those from the neighboring communities, to match their qualifications and skills with the needs of companies in WHA logistics facilities and industrial estates.

Since its soft launch in late June, the online channel already received over 100 job openings posted by WHA customers. WHA Group is currently running a marketing campaign to reach out not only to its customers, but also to its business partners, educational institutions, government agencies and communities around its industrial estates and logistics centers in the Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC).

To mark the culmination of the campaign, WHA will hold "E-Job Market Week" from July 15-31, to enable companies and their recruitment agencies to arrange online or face-to-face interviews with shortlisted candidates. By offering the opportunity to future employers and workers to "meet" and discuss, this online job fair will be an excellent way to match the right people with the right jobs.

"The COVID-19 situation impacted a number of industries and affected many of their employees. But on the bright side, we also see companies that are looking forward to filling vacancies, specifically in their production lines," commented Mr David Nardone, Group Executive Industrial and International, WHA Industrial Development Plc. "Through the WHA E-Job Market, we provide a platform to create a win-win situation for all, by matching our customers' HR needs with job seekers' expectations."

WHA customers are now invited to send in their job vacancies and employee requirements, while job seekers can post their applications in the WHA Industrial Estate website free of charge. WHA's website is also linked to the Vocational Education Commission's website where vocational and/or technical graduates nationwide may visit and check job announcements.

Posting on the WHA Job Pool is quick, simple and efficient. By going to the website and clicking on the WHA Job Pool icon on the top of the page, companies can post their job advertisements while job seekers can fill and submit their job application forms online, free of charge.
