The Manila city government is looking for around 1,500 contact tracers to help in the fight against the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic.
Contact tracers will be working closely with the government and private sector as they profile and interview close contacts of confirmed COVID-19 patients.
Interior and Local Government (DILG)-Manila director lawyer Rolynne Javier said Manila city residents who wish to apply must be a Bachelor of Science degree holder. Those with degrees in allied medical courses and/or criminology are preferred.
Applicants must also know how to gather data, conduct interviews, and investigate.
Those who be hired will work under a contract of service and will receive a monthly salary of P18,784.
Applicants can submit their application forms at a drop box at the DILG-Manila office at the City Hall or via online.
