SESAI launches project to encourage the first employment of indigenous people
The Special Secretariat of Indigenous Health (SESAI) of the Ministry of Health launched the pilot project ´Indigenous youth: my first job´. In order to value indigenous labor, the 34 Special Indigenous Health Districts (DSEI) will hire two nurses and four nursing technicians who have graduated at most 18 months ago.
"Almost 50% of SESAI´s workforce is already indigenous and this will increase. It is an important step and one to celebrate," commented the Special Secretary for Indigenous Health, Robson Santos da Silva.
The young people will go through a selection process before they are effective. The first stage will be a mandatory objective test, the second will be a curriculum analysis and only then will an interview be made with the candidates.
The project ´Indigenous youth: my first job´ will be included in the DSEI Work Plan and applicants must apply to their home DSEI. The hiring regime will be by employment contract for a period of nine months.
There is no guarantee that the professional will be incorporated into SESAI´s effective workforce. "This, however, may happen if there is a vacancy in the District. If there is no vacancy, a new selection process will be opened so that new people can enter the project," explained Secretary Robson.
