Hanoi Metro One Member Company (Hanoi Metro) will recruit 463 employees for the operation of the Nhon – Hanoi Station metro line, the second of its kind in the Vietnamese capital city, after several delays.
Vu Hong Truong, general director of Hanoi Metro, confirmed the recruitment to Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper on Wednesday.
The recruitment is expected to get the elevated section of the 12.5-kilometer-long metro line ready to serve Hanoi dwellers and visitors.
The new employees will work in several rooms and divisions in charge of operation, technology, monitoring, and repair and maintenance; as well as at stations.
The station management team needs 158 workers, the highest among other teams.
Workers will be given a modern working environment with high technology and have opportunities for promotion, as well as a stable income.
The Hanoi People’s Committee had earlier written to the prime minister asking for permission to delay the launch of the elevated section of the Nhon – Hanoi Station metro line to August this year instead of late 2022.
The Hanoi administration also proposed extending the completion of the metro line to 2027 and adding VND1.9 trillion (US$80.8 million) to the total cost of the project.
The prime minister approved these proposals on May 30.
Work on the Nhon – Hanoi Station metro line project started in September 2010 and was slated for completion in 2016.
The line features an 8.5-kilometer-long elevated section and an underground section with a length of four kilometers.
After 13 years of construction, the project, which will cost VND34.53 trillion ($1.5 billion), is just 75 percent complete.
