On July 3, it was learned from the Ningbo Municipal Human Resources and Social Security Bureau that the city recently released the catalog of high-skilled talents subsidies for occupations in short supply (types of work) in the city-level co-ordination area in 2019 and announced that the application started simultaneously. A group of outstanding blue-collar workers will receive the subsidy soon.

The relevant person in charge of the Ningbo Municipal Human Resources and Social Security Bureau informed that in order to guide, motivate and train a group of outstanding high-skilled talents to take root in the industry, since 2013, Ningbo has launched a job subsidy policy for occupations in short supply (work types). In recent years, with the help of a series of “combined punches”, the total number of skilled and high-skilled talents in the city has increased significantly. As of the first quarter of 2019, the total number of skilled talents in the city reached 1.538 million. Skilled talents are 437,000, accounting for 28.4% of the total number of skilled personnel.

It is learned that the qualifications for the application are as follows: applicants should be high-skilled talents working in the front line and within the labor contract; their basic social insurance expenses such as basic pension, medical insurance, and unemployment insurance are paid according to regulations; their occupations (work types) belong to the catalog of high-skilled talents subsidies for occupations in short supply (types of work) in the city-level co-ordination area  published by the Human Resources and Social Security Bureau; and with the national vocational qualification level 2 (technician) for the corresponding occupation (type of work) for 3 years or more, or the national vocational qualification level 1 (Senior Technician) certificate for one year or more.     The specific subsidy standards are: 500 yuan per person per month for technicians and 1,000 yuan per person per month for senior technicians. It is reported that applicants for subsidy do not include personnel in governments and institutions (except technical colleges). Subsidized personnel won’t be affected by the catalog issued in the following year, and subsidies can still be claimed. Each person can enjoy a maximum of 36 months, and the interruption is allowed in the middle, but it must be completed within five years from the date of the first subsidy. The subsidy will not be retained after five years.

It is learned that this catalog has integrated some occupations (types of work) in the catalog of occupations (work types) in the previous year. In addition to traditional mold design workers, electric loading and unloading machinery drivers, loading and unloading machinery and electrical repairmen, chemical instrument maintenance workers, welders, this year's catalogue has added 10 kinds of jobs that are in short supply in the economic and social development of the city, such as chemical general control workers, construction machinery maintenance workers, and intelligent building managers
