In the Far East in the next two years will be 80 thousand new jobs

Six months later, Valentin Timakov, General Director of the Agency for the Development of Human Capital in the Far East (ANRCE), outlined the main problems in the labor market of the region with which the company had to face, its prospects, and also talked about the main directions of the organization's work

The report of the head of ARCHK DV was made at a press conference - presentation of the Agency for the Development of Human Capital in the Far East, the other participants of which were the Minister of the Russian Federation for the Development of the Far East Alexander Galushka and Governor of the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug Roman Kopin.

In the Far East in the next two years will be 80 thousand new jobs
“Today, there is no doubt that the work of the new development institution is in demand both on the part of the regions and on the part of investors. Many problems of personnel shortage go beyond the boundaries of individual subjects, but also beyond the entire Far Eastern macro-region, ”said Alexander Galushka.

“In the modern labor market of the Far East, there is a strong imbalance between supply and demand - there are three vacancies for one unemployed in the region. One of the reasons for this imbalance is the weak interaction of educational institutions with employers, as a result of which educational programs do not meet the needs of the economy, and university graduates cannot find work in their specialty, ”said Valentin Timakov.

At the same time, he noted that in addition to the demand for labor resources, high wages will appear in the Far East in the future - in the territories of advanced development it will be higher than in the central part of Russia. Employers in these territories will have the opportunity to increase their wages for their employees, in particular, due to tax preferences provided by the TOP.

According to him, the agency has already carried out an inventory of the existing 400 investment projects in the Far East and has identified a list of key professions that will be needed by the regional economy in the period from 2016 to 2021.

This list includes 598 professions. The most demanded professions in it are the operator of production lines, electric and gas welder, power engineer, design engineer and mechanical engineer, blasting specialist. The directory with the list of the agency will be posted on an electronic resource in the public domain, and will also be regularly updated.

“The agency can already say with confidence what professions will be needed in the future in the Far East, as it has conducted 25 branches of the regional economy. As well as to say how much people will earn at certain enterprises, ”announced Valentin Timakov.
In his opinion, such information will give employees a clear understanding of where they will work, and, therefore, where to go to study. Employers, in turn, will be able to plan their expenses and look for candidates for their businesses. Universities will have the opportunity to form a target enrollment of those students who will be in demand in the economy.

He added that the Agency's work with the higher educational institutions of the Far East has just begun.

“To date, I have visited not so many educational institutions in the Far East, in addition to the Far Eastern Federal University and the Mirny Regional Technical College. But in the near future it will be necessary to develop a rating of the Far Eastern technical schools by the quality of education. Since it is now obvious that the quality of training specialists in them varies greatly. In particular, this clearly reflects the fact that out of the total number of welders currently produced in the Far East, only a few are suitable for work at shipbuilding enterprises, ”said Valentin Timakov.

He also said that as part of its activities, the Agency is conducting a dialogue with both the administrations of the Far Eastern regions and their employers. Now they have already completed the work on signing agreements with the latter. In the general pool, 25 companies were identified that will bring about 80 thousand new jobs to the economy of the Far East over the next two years. "

Valentin Timakov noted that currently the agency has a clear understanding of where to hire workers and how to train them. At the same time, while providing companies with labor resources, it focuses on the residents of the Far East, because its main task is to increase competitiveness in the Far Eastern labor market.

“Realizing its tasks, the Agency is working to implement the state program of regional labor mobility, which started in 2015. Already in the first half of 2016, 1290 people will come to the Far East under the program, and the bulk of the new employees will appear there in 2017, when the first starts of new productions will take place, ”said Valentin Timakov.

At the same time, he added that at the same time, the agency directs its efforts to create such conditions in the Far East so that the population of the Russian regions rushes and lives in its territory. Mainly, he works to improve working conditions and increase his remuneration, create comfortable living conditions, primarily housing. In the future, it also plans to organize a support center for visitors to the Far East.

“According to a sociological survey, even today Russian society is pinning its hopes on the life of the Far East. They see their life possible on its territory, thanks to those projects and the state policy that is being implemented in the Far Eastern regions today. They want to make this or that region of the Far East their place of residence in order to solve problems with work and improve living conditions. And this is not surprising, since today the level of wages in the Far East is higher than in many Russian regions due to investments coming into its economy and its expansion due to new enterprises, ”announced Alexander Galushka.

He noted that at the same time, a number of modern state programs are aimed at creating the all-round attractiveness of the Far East. This is a list of 27 state programs approved by the Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev, which must necessarily contain a special section dedicated to the development of the Far East, and be coordinated with the Ministry for the Development of the Far East. This list includes a wide variety of programs, in particular - education, health, public safety, transport, industry, agriculture. Currently, these programs are being coordinated by the Ministry for the Development of the Russian Far East.

In addition to government programs, Alexander Galushka drew attention to the fact that also in Komsomolsk-on-Amur, a project is being implemented to equalize urban spaces, which involves the development of the Far East. The goal of the project is the comprehensive development of the city's territory, where high-tech production is now surrounded by "backward" territories.

Roman Kopin, in turn, said that Chukotka is one of the regions that directly depends on the development of its mineral resource base. Among the main projects to be implemented in the very near future, the Governor named gold mining projects, copper development, the development of a coking coal deposit, and a complete modernization of the region's energy systems. Their implementation requires not only investments, but also specialists. First of all, specialists from the public sector, doctors, teachers, veterinarians and specialists who will work at the new facilities. The PAO system can only partially satisfy this need. Large projects will require different solutions, so the District is developing cooperation with the Agency.

Within the framework of the press conference, an Agreement on strategic partnership in the field of human capital development was signed between the Agency for the Development of Human Capital in the Far East and the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug. The signed agreement is a framework one. It determines the procedure for the Agency's interaction with the district administration in the framework of its development. Its goal is to implement a whole range of measures aimed at developing human capital and improving the qualifications of workers.

Similar agreements have already been signed by the Agency with a number of regions, including the Khabarovsk Territory and the Republic of Yakutia.
