Three big projects in Ilocos Norte need more competent personnel.
The government of Ilocos Norte is asking for additional trained personnel to help speed up the building of three big projects that are planned to be finished within Governor Matthew Joseph Manotoc’s tenure.
Plasterers, tile-setters, wheelmen, carpenters, painters, scaffolders, heavy equipment spotters, and assistants or laborers are among the skilled workers.
The Provincial Employment Service Office (PESO) manager, Anne Marie Lizette Bitancor-Atuan, said on Friday that interested candidates may register online https://workin.ilocosnorte.gov.ph/ and fill out the required information under the resume page.
“They are not required to submit any documents via the employment platform. “All they have to do is register and fill out the information page, then wait for their interview call,” she said.
All three projects are in the final stages of building.
The Ilocos Norte government has allocated the funds for the rehabilitation of the Marcos Sports Stadium, construction of the provincial capitol expansion building, and reconstruction of the Dap-ayan Food Park, which were all funded by a PHP2 billion soft loan from the Development Bank of the Philippines during the last term of former governor and now senator Ma. Imelda Josefa “Imee” Marcos.
These multibillion-peso infrastructure projects are part of the senator’s Metro Ilocos Norte master plan, which is being implemented under Governor Matthew Joseph Manotoc’s administration.
However, the year-long epidemic is taking its toll on the projects, but the Provincial Engineering Office promised that the contractors are working hard to fulfill the deadlines for the projects, which are scheduled to be finished before Manotoc’s last term.
For the construction of the provincial capitol expansion building and the repair of the Marcos Stadium, more skilled personnel are required.
Several offices in the Capital were temporarily transferred to the Laoag Centennial Arena and the La Tabacalera Center to make space for the enlargement of the provincial capitol building, which will be erected to the same height and design as the present structure. On the other side, the Marcos Stadium will be raised one meter above the current road level.
The first two are planned to be completed in 425 calendar days, while the Dap-ayan Center will be completed in 730 calendar days.
The Dap-ayan Center will be the province’s highest government facility, standing eight stories tall with subterranean parking and large meeting rooms, among other amenities.
