SICCI Members listen to presentations delivered by Pasifiki HR staffs during the BA5 event

Pasifiki HR (PHR), in collaboration with Australia Strongim Bisnis (SB), is proud to announce the launch of a new Internship Program aimed at equipping recent graduates with essential work-readiness knowledge and skills. The PHR-SB Internship Program offers three-month funded internships, designed to provide enthusiastic recent graduates with invaluable workplace experience.

The announcement was made at a recent Business After Five (BA5) event, hosted by Pasifiki HR for members of the Solomon Islands Chamber of Commerce and Industry. Speaking at the event, Bob Pollard highlighted the significant challenges faced by graduates in the Solomon Islands, where securing employment is a privilege due to the scarcity of job opportunities.

“There is a massive deficit between the number of graduates and the availability of full-time jobs,” Pollard said. “Approximately 15,000 individuals graduate every year across all levels of education, yet only a small fraction manages to secure full-time employment.”

Pollard encouraged businesses and organizations to support the Internship Program, emphasizing the importance of providing interns with real-world workplace experiences.
