Section C1: Employers sourcing for their own talent for PCP

Can I propose my own candidates I wish to hire under the PCP?

This solution is actually preferable to having Lithan sourcing for talent for you. 70% of our PCP employers successfully source and place their The one condition you have to mindful of is the talent cannot already be in that job role or have the qualifications of that role already (eg. Digital Marketer cannot be hired for a Digital Marketing job role. A traditional marketer can be hired though). BUT if the candidate has been out of work for 6 months or more if in that particular job role, they can be considered under the PCP.

 

How do I go about proposing my own candidate for PCP?

if you have candidates you wish to propose for hiring under the PCP, send their CVs and past 6 months CPF statement to your assigned Lithan sales consultant. This is so that we can provide accurate information to qualify eligibility, expectations and conditions for you to hire them under the PCP.

Section C2: About Lithan sourcing for talent for PCP Employers

Is my company obliged to hire under the PCP?

PCP employers have full authority to hire candidates based on merit. The selection, interview and hiring process follows the same structure as any job interview.

 

What is the profile of the candidates in the talent pool offered by Lithan?

Lithan is constantly building a pool of agile multi-disciplinary PMET talent who have been in the workforce long enough to understand work discipline and culture. They have the necessary soft skills, industry domain knowledge, adaptability and a willingness to reskill themselves. They are only lacking to a certain extent the skills required for the new digital workforce.

 

How do talent prepare for interviews with PCP Employers?

As with any interview, preparation is important. Talent are advised to read up on the industry broadly, industry trends, the employer’s company background, competitors, and latest developments.

 

What relevance is the past qualifications and working experience to me as a PCP employer?

Past qualifications may not have much relevance especially since talent are switching industries or their job role is no longer current in the job marketplace. Their general working experience will always be an asset as these are transferable skills you as an employer are looking for. Their ability to demonstrate how you overcome obstacles and challenges in a work environment are also assets.

 

How will talent know what the job description and is about for a job role they are interviewing for?

PCP employers create job descriptions for the roles they intend to hire for. You then present it to Lithan for our talent management to match your CV to PCP employers and job roles. Talent will be given the job description and have their own FAQ on how PCP works.

 

Since this is a conversion programme, how will talent qualify to fill the job description of the job role?

As a PCP employer, you must accept talent will not be able to perform 100% of the job role initially. Think of the job description as a role for talent to grow into and aspire to master over the duration of the training programme.

 

If qualifications has little relevance to PCP employers, how should I assess talent during the interview?

While they may not have the specific skills for the role they are interviewing for, look at their personality, attitude and to gauge how they would fit in their company culture in assessing their suitability. Their willingness to learn and adapt are also key considerations.

 

How does Lithan match me to PCP employers?

PCP employers may provide Lithan with specific requirements in terms of prior industry experience and domain knowledge of candidates. However, you are encouraged to look broadly at talent from a perspective of their potential to fill the role given the training and on-the-job application of skills acquired. Using all the above together with the job description provided, Lithan shortlists candidates for employers to select for interviews.

 

How will interviews be scheduled for me?

CVs and profiles of talent will be matched with PCP Employers. You then indicate your interest to interview any number of them . We will contact you to schedule an interview at a pre-arranged time and venue. Employers will also be strongly encouraged to attend our Recruitment events, networking and Career events to increase your chances of picking up talent under the PCP.
