On February 1, 2023 in Mostar, the first meeting of the Employment Council of the City of Mostar was held with the aim of starting the process of creating a local employment action plan for the City of Mostar.
Representatives of key partners in the field of employment from the public, private, non-governmental and educational sectors have been appointed to the employment council.
The Employment Council has the task of preparing and organizing the LEAP creation process, preparing the situation analysis, SWOT analysis, strategic focuses and goals, defining priorities and measures, creating the operational part of the LEAP and preparing the LEAP draft.
The activity of creating a local employment action plan is one of the activities of the project "SUPPORT TO YOUTH EMPLOYMENT IN THE IT SECTOR".
REDAH in partnership with the City of Mostar, the University of Mostar, the company IT odjel d.o.o. Mostar and the Employment Service of HNŽ-HNK, is implementing a project that will last 21 months with a total value of 400,182 KM, of which the amount of EU grant funds is 312,932 KM. The project intends to reduce the discrepancy between the currently recorded large number of unemployed young people and the expressed need of companies from the IT sector for a specific occupational profile. The local partnership will initiate a process with planned activities that will create methods and tools for long-term sustainability through the Local Action Plan for employment of the City of Mostar.
Local Partnership for Employment Mostar is one of 20 established partnerships in the country under the "European Union Support to Local Partnerships for Employment - Phase II" (LEP II) Project, funded by the European Union with EUR 4 million and implemented by the International Labor Organization (ILO).
This project aims to contribute to the improvement of employment opportunities in local communities by supporting the development of local employment partnerships as partnership-established labor market mechanisms that ensure access to formal employment.
