The government has launched a website aimed at linking job seekers to existing employment and internship opportunities within their counties as well as across the country.

Addressing the media during the launch Wednesday at KICC in Nairobi, East African Community and Labour Cabinet Secretary Phyllis Kandie said that the portal, dubbed Kenya Labour Market Information System (KLMIS), was a one-stop shop for labour information in the country.

She reckons it will help address the challenge of inadequate supply of crucial employment statistics in Kenya by providing an interactive platform for prospective employers and job seekers.

“Through the National Employment Agency and in partnership with the private sector, job seekers will be able to register and upload their CVs and apply for the same, free of charge. The ministry will ensure that every young person seeking employment is identified by carrying out a continuous county level registration process through the KLMIS Platform,” said Ms Kandie.
