Job Placement

Job Placement
Under the Job Placement programme, ISCOS will provide career guidance to ex-offenders and liaise with employers from various sectors to arrange for job interviews for suitable candidates.

Over the years, we have witnessed many ISCOS members’ lives transform because employers are willing to give them the opportunity to earn a decent living. As such, we also remain committed to engaging more employers and encourage them to hire at least one ISCOS member. We believe that this small but very significant step will ease the stigma towards ex-offenders, and hope that more companies will open doors to members who have turned over a new leaf and are committed to be equally productive workers.  

Whether you are an employer interested to be part of this initiative or an ISCOS member seeking employment opportunities, please call 6743 7885 or email [email protected]

Skills Assistance Subsidy Scheme (SASS)

In today’s highly competitive society, ex-offenders have to continuously upgrade skills to increase their employability. To do so, ISCOS members may tap the Skills Assistance Subsidy Scheme (SASS) to help defray the training course fees. Some of the common courses taken by members include culinary courses, Class 3, Class 4 and Class 5 Driving Licences.

With the assistance of SASS, ISCOS members can look forward to better career prospects and increased earning potential to sustain themselves and their families.

Eligibility criteria:

  • Currently an ISCOS member
  • Currently employed
  • Basic salary and fixed allowance ≤ $1,900

Additional criteria will apply depending on the course.

Applicants who do not meet the eligibility criteria may still apply and will be assessed on a case-by-case basis, subject to approval.

Successful SASS applicants will be eligible for a subsidy of up to $800.

For enquiries or for members who are interested to apply for SASS, please call 6743 7885 or email [email protected].
