Draft Labour Market Strategy – Public Consultation Sessions

A new draft Labour Market Strategy (LMS) has been developed for St Helena and is now out for public consultation until Friday, 11 October 2019.

The draft LMS is organised around three key goals:

  • Resolving inequities, both real and perceived, in St Helena’s labour market
  • Increasing the working age population on St Helena and
  • Preparing the workforce to meet the vision laid out in the Sustainable Economic Development Plan.

The Economic Development Committee will hold the following consultation meetings for all members of the public. Each meeting will start at 7pm:



HTH Community Centre Monday, 9 September
Harford Community Centre Wednesday, 11 September

A public consultation meeting for employers will also take place on Tuesday, 24 September, at the Jamestown Community Centre, starting at 7pm.

The draft LMS is available on the Publications page of the SHG website: https://www.sainthelena.gov.sh/publications/. Hard copies are available at the Public Library and Customer Service Centre in Jamestown.

You can also share your opinions by completing a short online questionnaire via: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/VYQ5PR8 or send an email to the Senior Economist, Amanda Brown, via: Amanda.Brown@sainthelena.gov.sh.
