Everything about Nauru is unique - the people, the culture, the language and the community.
This website provides you with information on the recruitment and selection processes for Nauru’s Recognised Seasonal Employment Scheme.
The Seasonal Work Unit (based in the Pacific/Trade division of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade) was formally established in January 2015. This Unit is dedicated to equipping Nauru workers with the skills they need to ensure they can meet and maintain the high work standards expected of them.
‘Working Towards Growth’ represents productive and beneficial outcomes for both RSE workers and their Employers and these outcomes signifies Nauru government’s commitment to the development of its people through new employment opportunities, increased remittance incomes and the building of their individual skills and knowledge.
Nauru would like to extend its sincere gratitude to the New Zealand government through the Strengthening Pacific Partnerships program for helping develop this website.
Entry to the work ready pool requires a check of potential workers to ensure workers selected possess the right attitude and work ethics. The Seasonal Work Unit requests and conducts individual interviews with community leaders and former Employers of successful candidates for thorough cross checking.
Applicants must first commit to a comprehensive fitness and literacy training program to qualify to be in the RSE work ready pool. The programme consists of fitness training, basic English and financial literacy, goal setting and an introduction to the seasonal work program. The program is designed to ensure that those who are work ready, know what they are committing to and are prepared to do so.
The three week fitness test requires applicants to commit to the training for seven hours a day, six days a week. Applicants are monitored by qualified fitness trainers who grade them on punctuality, attendance, teamwork, leadership and productivity level.
Applicants are trained and nurtured to be goal orientated. The Seasonal Work Unit recognises the mental and physical challenges associated with seasonal work programs. Preparation processes are designed to prepare candidates for the reality of working and living abroad. Basic English and budget literacy and goal setting are an essential part of the training. These sessions allow the opportunity for candidates to bond with each other and are aimed at building a culture of teamwork and commitment.
Successful applicants will then undergo mandatory police and health clearance checks after an Employer submits their request for workers. Once a contract is received, a three day pre-departure session is held with all successful applicants to fully prepare them.
The focus of Nauru Government is to supply high quality workers (and not just a high number of candidates in the work ready pool).
