MEET THE PROJECT MANAGER: Amra Seleskovic, Technical Officer on Strategies for Local Employment Development
In this video, Amra Seleskovic, Technical Officer on Strategies for Local Employment Development of the ILO Office for Central and Eastern Europe shares details of the work she does to create new labour market opportunities in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The Local Employment Partnership II aims to reduce unemployment and ensure transition to formality in Bosnia and Herzegovina, a country characterized by high unemployment. The project, funded by the European Union, works with a unique methodology, wherein local authorities, employers, education institutions, public employment services and NGOs work together to identify the main local labour market issues and to jointly design programmes to address these issues. Local Employment Partnerships were launched in 2016 in BiH. In the current second phase, at least 1,600 people will benefit from job training programmes and 600 new jobs will be created.
