The National Chamber of Entrepreneurs jointly with the Ministry of Labor and Social Protection of Kazakhstan, and administrations of Nur-Sultan, Almaty, and Shymkent cities has launched the Atameken support center in Kazakhstan, the Atameken national chamber of entrepreneurs of Kazakhstan reported.

The key tasks of the project are to establish contacts with the unemployed population and provide employment.

The mobile offices of the Atameken support center will be located in the most visited places, i.e. near shopping centers, markets, and railway stations.

"Our priority in this project is a dialogue with the population. The task of mobile centres is to help in employment, and explain what tools exist that may help people to find a source of income, identify and reveal their business potential," the Deputy Chairman of the Board of the Atameken NCE RK Eldar Zhumagaziev said.

A distinctive feature of the project is the format in which the team of the Atameken support center will work. The services will be provided by 4 managers and 1 personal growth consultant. Thus employees will work in a pro-active mode, which is not simply to accept people, but constantly go to the places of gathering of people, to offer tools of support in employment questions.

If there is no suitable vacancy in the database, the visitors will be offered a new profession. Clients will be able to sign up for short-term training courses (within the framework of the Enbek state employment program), which are conducted on the basis of enterprises. Such training lasts from one to six months and provides for a scholarship and further employment.

There are three mobile employment centers in Nur-Sultan, in total eight of them will work. The Atameken support centers will operate in three cities of the country in a pilot mode - Nur-Sultan, Almaty, and Shymkent. The total number of such centers will be 30: 12 centers in Almaty; 10 – in Shymkent; 8 – in Nur-Sultan.
