The Foreign Construction Worker Directory System (FCWDS) is a new technology and solution which empower construction employers to hire existing skilled foreign workers.

The directory system is an online platform containing the list of existing construction workers, mainly the Work Permit Holders whose pass are about to expire. Thereafter, employers who are registered with the system can gain access to search for a pool of available workers who are validated by the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) to meet their project needs.

FCWDS is highly accessible with user friendly search functions enabling employers to search for workers based on their individual needs. Some of the search functions include criteria such as their skill status, years of construction experience, trade skills certificate and many more.
