FastJobs Malaysia (FastJobs), award-winning tech-driven job platform, partners with FWD Takaful Berhad (FWD Takaful) to provide low-cost takaful coverage to FastJobs’ gig jobseekers for as low as RM31 per month.

Under this initiative, both partners aim to educate Malaysians, especially the youth who are employed as bluecollar and entry-level workers, on the importance and benefits of takaful protection. They also hope to extend takaful benefits and protection to gig workers that are usually offered to those with full-time employment only.

Most importantly, both FastJobs and FWD Takaful would like to provide easy access to online hospital cash income plan to this group of beneficiaries at an affordable price.

FastJob’s General Manager, Joelle Pang said, their joint alliance with FWD Takaful will simultaneously provide our entry-level and non-executive jobseekers with access to equal job opportunities and social safety protection that will enhance their quality of life.

Meanwhile, FWD Takaful’s Chief Strategy and Digital Distribution Officer, Wan Ahmad Najib Wan Ahmad Lotfi said, the initiative intends to support the government’s efforts to protect Malaysia’s gig workers during these extraordinary times.

“We believe that freelancers should be able to continue doing the work they love while staying protected and we hope that they can continue to live without hesitation, knowing that FWD Takaful has got them covered.

“Our collaboration with FastJobs will help us to expand our takaful awareness initiative by educating Malaysians, especially the younger jobseekers from the blue-collar workforce on the benefits of takaful protection,” he said.
