Murmansk Region to provide staff counseling for those relocating to the Arctic
An employment service called Course to the North has begun offering services in the Murmansk Region. As part of the service, the regional authorities hope to attract students and graduates from other regions of the country with professions that are in demand in the labor market on the Kola Peninsula.
The service will also provide staffing support for people planning to move to the Murmansk Region to find employment. Support will include development of an individual plan, provision of various services and assistance in finding employment, and the selection of suitable work options.
"State-financed organizations need specialists with advanced degrees like doctors, engineers, teachers, IT-specialists, while medical professionals, educators and musicians are in demand among mid-level specialists ," the Murmansk Region website reads.
All of the service’s activities are designed to resolve the problem of staff shortages in a comprehensive way. The project is based at the regional employment centre where the program managers hope to encourage qualified specialists to consider state-financed organizations in the region.
Consultations under the project can be obtained by telephone: 8 (815-2) 56-67-07.
