The Gyeonggi-do Job Foundation, in cooperation with Work in Estonia, will help locally promote job opportunities in Estonia and support Estonian companies that are interested in attracting ICT specialists from the Gyeonggi Province.

On an official visit to South Korea, the President of Estonia Kersti Kaljulaid has signed an Economic Cooperation Memorandum of Understanding between Estonia and the Gyeonggi Province that aims at increasing cooperation in three areas:

  • Connect entrepreneurs with the use of e-residency
  • Further develop blockchain technology
  • Promote opportunities for ICT specialists to work in Estonia

The latter means, that a Pilot Project will be started in order to potentially increase the amount of South Korean ICT specialists in Estonia and help Estonian companies find suitable candidates. The Gyeonggi-do Job Foundation will be in charge of promoting the job positions, defining channels of distribution and doing the first screening of candidates to ensure their English language skills are suitable for the Estonian companies.

Work in Estonia will be in charge of coordinating the project in Estonia, will communicate with the employers and help organize the materials and messages to promote Estonia as a working destination in South Korea.

The Gyeonggi province is home to the Pangyo Techno Valley, a growing hub for technological innovation and industry in Asia.
