The SGUnited Mid-Career Pathways Programme is a full-time attachment programme which supports mature mid-career individuals aged 40 and above, to widen their professional networks and gain meaningful industry-relevant skills and experience. The attachments will last between four to six months. Host organisations can take on mature mid-career individuals (aged 40 and above) who bring with them a wealth of work experience on attachments. Upon completion of the attachment, host organisations are required to hire individuals as permanent employees as long as their performance is assessed to be satisfactory during the attachment.
Trainees will receive a training allowance of up to $3,800 per month for the duration of the attachment. The approved monthly training allowance may vary depending on the scope of the attachment proposed by the host organisation. The Government co-funds the training allowance with the host organisation.
