It has come to the attention of the Ministry of Labour and Social Security, that information is being circulated in the public domain, suggesting that the Ministry is accepting applications under the ‘New Government Employ Programme’, designed to create 40,000 new jobs.

There is no truth to this information. Do not believe it. It’s a scam!

The ministry is further categorically stating, that the purported email address jamaicaemploymlss@gmail.com to which prospective applicants are to send their applications is not associated with any of its communication platforms.

Persons are being asked to ignore any such notifications received electronically or otherwise.

In the meantime, Permanent Secretary, Colette Roberts Risden, says, the Ministry’s platform through which employment is facilitated, is the Jamaica Labour Market Information System (LMIS), which is accessible via the website www.lmis.gov.jm , the mobile application through the Google Play Store or the iOS platform.

These platforms will allow job-seekers to register and edit their Resume’s on the system, while employers are encouraged to register and post vacancies to these employment portals.
