About ASEAN JOBSASEAN JOBS is an online job information centre that aims to provide greater access for youth to employment opportunities in their countries and across Southeast Asia region.
This is an important product of the Bridges to the Future: ASEAN Youth Employment (BTF), one of the programmes of ASEAN Foundation, in a collaboration with Plan International, that is supported by Google.org. BTF itself is a two-year programme that was launched in 2020 aiming to support ASEAN youth in not only acquiring the necessary 21st century skills to (re)enter the workforce, but also building a more sustainable and secure economy post-pandemic. The programme has become a host to market-driven vocational trainings and job-matching sessions that targets vulnerable young people in the region. Additionally, a regionwide research on employment and labour market trends in the ASEAN region was conducted, covering topics such as skills that are most needed by the industries and existing barriers that creates difficulties for young people to secure a decent job.
About ASEAN Foundation
Three decades after ASEAN was established, ASEAN leaders recognised that: there remained inadequate shared prosperity, ASEAN awareness and contact among people of ASEAN. It was of this concern that ASEAN leaders established ASEAN Foundation during ASEAN’s 30th Anniversary Commemorative Summit in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia on 15 December 1997. ASEAN Foundation is an organisation from and for the people of ASEAN. The Foundation exists because of one vision: to build a cohesive and prosperous ASEAN Community. As an ASEAN’s body, the Foundation is tasked to support ASEAN mainly in promoting awareness, identity, interaction and development of the people of ASEAN.
