It's the second recruitment roadshow held by PT HJF. In 2021, the recruitment roadshow was  held in the villages of Kawasi and Laiwui, city of Labuha, targeting to recruit 500 workers.  However, considering the large number of applicants and the progress of manpower needs,  the number recruited last year exceeded the target of 700 workers  

In the meantime, to ensure that applicants are originally from Obi Island and the South  Halmahera region, PT HJF verified the applicants' ID cards and recommendations from the  village administration. The first priority of recruited workers are jobseekers originating from  the villages of Kawasi and Laiwui whilst second priority goes to applicants from Obi Island  and the city of Labuha.  

Stevi disclosed that until the roadshow ended, there were 1,200 applicants from Obi Island  and 800 applicants from the city of Labuha completed the application forms. Many of  jobseekers residing outside of the South Halmahera also attended the roadshow including  those from Ambon and Seram. However, at this time, the priority focused on those domiciling  from South Halmahera. 

Stevi affirmed that since the beginning of the recruitment roadshow, the company has involved the village and sub-district administrations and the Manpower Office of South  Halmahera. The communication sessions delivered through the village and sub-district  administrations in Obi Island. The recruitment roadshow held at Laiwui village was attended  by 2 staff of the South Halmahera Manpower Office. Roadshow at Labuha would be held on October 9 and 10, 2022 to be opened by Head of Manpower Office of South Halmahera  Ardiani Radjiloen.

Employment absorption by Harita Nickel has been reported to local manpower office.
