Consunji power unit opens 900 job vacancies
Semirara Mining and Power Corp. needs to fill 930 positions to support the site rehabilitation of its Panian pit and commercial operation of its Molave and Narra mines.
In addition to dump truck and shovel operators, SMPC needs additional safety, mechanical, civil works, geodetic and maintenance personnel for its expanded operations.
“We will prioritize the hiring of qualified applicants from the host community. If there are residents who need additional training in order to qualify, we can also help with that,” said SMPC president and COO Victor A. Consunji.
In 2006, SMPC established Semirara Training Center, Inc, (STCI) in Semirara Island to allow locals and workers’ dependents develop marketable skills.
“SMPC is the single biggest employer in the area because majority of our workers come from Semirara and Caluya. In 2015 alone, our direct and indirect labor costs in the mine site amounted to over a billion pesos,” said Consunji.
