Sime Darby Plantation wooing local jobseekers

KUALA LUMPUR – Sime Darby Plantation Bhd is calling on Malaysian jobseekers to join the industry amid ample job opportunities throughout its upstream and downstream operations by quashing the misconception about the sector being in the category of dangerous, dirty and difficult (3D).

“It is unfortunate that over the years, we have seen a steady decline in the interest of Malaysians, especially the younger generation, in taking up the various job opportunities that are available in this industry,” chief operations services officer Adi Wira Abd Razak said.

“Perhaps it is due to the misconception that this is a 3D industry. The fact of the matter is, today, this is no longer the case.”

Sime Darby Plantation has been working to mechanise and digitise its fieldwork to improve work efficiency, productivity and ensure the safety of its workers at all times.
“We offer numerous attractive benefits to provide a conducive working and living environment for both employees and their families. This is part of our commitment to protect and respect the rights of all our employees, regardless of their gender, ethnic background and religion,” he said in a statement today.

The job opportunities offered also come with training, guidance and all the necessary support to equip new recruits with the skills they need to perform their work and build a progressive career in the plantation industry, he said.

Wooing Malaysians is also part of its effort to shore up the current labour shortage in the industry.

“We have been actively recruiting locals in the past year and we hope to see the number of local hires increasing,” he said.

“The future prospects for this industry are bright, because palm oil is such an important and valuable ingredient to the world.

“More than 50% of all the products you see on supermarket shelves around the world contain palm oil and it is not easily replaced by alternatives.

“For this reason, we believe that the palm oil industry will continue to thrive and provide a successful and satisfying long-term career path for those who would like to take up the various job opportunities available in the industry today,” he added.
