Employment Support from the Aga Khan Economic Planning Board

Many businesses are urgently seeking more staff to meet orders, and help with deliveries and services. There is an increased demand for drivers and warehouse operatives with variable working hours and night shifts available. The major supermarkets are searching for 35,000 additional workers, but many other firms supplying essential goods or services are also looking for extra help so they can cope with the increased demand.This may be of particular interest to those members of the Jamat who are currently facing sudden financial difficulties.
