Koro Islanders To Be Engaged For NZ RSE Work Scheme

Ten workers from Koro Island on Monday received their pre-departure orientation and Life Skills Training certificates from the Minister for Employment, Productivity and Industrial Relations Jone Usamate for deployment under the New Zealand Recognised Seasonal Employer (RSE) Work Scheme.

Mr Usamate highlighted that these 10 workers would be employed with Provine Limited as horticultural seasonal workers.

“These workers are the first ever group from Fiji to join this company Provine Limited,” Mr Usamate said.

In farewelling the workers, he reminded them to maintain their focus, grasp as much as they can and save money for their family back here in Fiji.

“Your tireless efforts, commitment and hard work will encourage more RSE employers to consider recruitment from Fiji as a source of excellent labour force for seasonal work in the future. I trust that you will all be returning workers in the future to lead and empower other Fijian groups from your Tikina and other Tikinas in Fiji,” he said.

The minister acknowledged the employer Kenneth Prouting for his trust and faith in our people following the engagement of the 10 workers from Koro Island.

“Also my sincere appreciation to the ‘vanua’ of Koro for their commitment and dedication towards the new Tikina based recruitment and selection criteria,” he said.

The minister lauded the hard work, commitment and team work of Fijian workers who had successfully participated in the RSE work scheme last year and the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment, New Zealand for their co-ordination for seasonal work employment opportunities of Fijians under the RSE work scheme.

He also reminded the workers of their visa conditions and wished them the very best in their deployment.
