PIVOT – For Professionals in Transition





About PIVOT

Working lives are changing as a result of significant technological, societal and skills shifts, with the labour market in Singapore showing increasing signs of strain and growing pool of workforce facing displacement and career transition.

Being displaced from a job can lead to stress, depression and uncertainty towards what the future may hold. As a Labour Movement that stands by our working people, the new initiative - PIVOT Programme by NTUC is a one-stop service to help Professionals, Managers and Executives (PMEs) in the areas of community and network building, emotional support and re-skilling to better prepare them to be transited into a new job role or industry.

PIVOT complements the existing career coaching services provided by e2i and U PME Centre and taps on the extensive NTUC network comprising professional associations under U Associate programme (termed as U Associates) for:

•    Access to peer-to-peer and coaching support as well as mentorships and talks by industry practitioners to furnish insights to make more informed career choices; and
