As the construction and planning stages for the Makati Intra-city Subway (MkTr) is in full swing, Makati City Mayor Abby Binay announced the

opening of the first wave of job vacancies for the project.

“As promised earlier, the Makati Subway will be generating jobs and providing an additional source of income for our Makatizens and their families. This project will forever change the landscape of Makati, and it is an honor for me and my administration to leave our beloved city this legacy,” Binay said.

Binay explained that the project will create 10,000 new jobs for the construction and operation of the train system alone. This does not include additional jobs which will be created as a result of the efficient transport system in the city.

Among the job vacancies are: BIM Specialist of Engineering Technology Department, Manager of Engineering Technology Department, Engineering Technician, Surveying Engineer, Electrician, and Engineering Technicians.

Binay said the project also needs administrative personnel, an office driver, logistics personnel, and a chef.

She added that Makati residents will be prioritized in the job hiring, but the 22 job vacancies may also be filled by non-Makati residents who are qualified for the roles. Interested applicants may send their resumes to Mr. Danny Liang at [email protected]

MkTr is an 11-kilometer underground rapid transit line that will link establishments across the Makati business district.

The system will have two tracks, 10 underground stations, and air-conditioned coaches which can accommodate 200 persons per car. It will also have a train yard, maintenance depot, and central command center at ground level.
