Upload Your CV for Youth Employment

Harambee Youth Employment Accelerators is a free service that helps young South Africans overcome many of the difficulties they face in finding and keeping their first job.


Our assessments and training help you get and keep a real job at a real company.

We help young people with a matric or equivalent qualification who have been looking for a permanent full-time job, but haven’t been able to find one.

We also help young people who have a university degree or other tertiary qualifications but haven’t been able to find a job.

Most people find their jobs through a social network – school or university, friends, family or previous work experience.

For people who don’t have these social networks, networks that link to jobs, finding a job is difficult.

Harambee works to create this kind of social network for young work-seekers.

Research by the Development Bank of South Africa shows that a young South African who can get and keep a first job for at least 12 months has an 85% chance of being employed for the rest of their lives.

Harambee is calling upon all unemployed young people who reside in Johannesburg and meet the below criteria!!!!

To qualify you need to:

• 18 to 34 years (opportunities available for those over 29 are limited)

• Have a valid South African ID

• Have at least a Grade 11 completed 1 year before application

• Persons with a disability require a minimum of a Grade 9

• Are currently unemployed

• Educated at a previously disadvantaged school

• Not employed in one job for longer than one year

• Are hungry for an opportunity

• Have never been blacklisted

• Have no criminal record

• Have not been permanently employed for more than 12 months

• Have been actively looking for work for more than six months

How Apprenticeships Works

How Apprenticeships Works

Employers advertise in newspapers, or place adverts in the city, town or community centres. Apprentices entering apprenticeships should at least be 15 years of age.

Why are apprenticeships important?

Apprenticeships are aimed at developing trade-specific skills.

In South Africa there are several industries that desperately need skilled artisans.

By establishing a formal skills development structure, such shortage of skills can be addressed by training people in the necessary fields.

If you are interested in becoming an artisan, speak to qualified artisans and, where possible, visit their workplaces to see if this is the type of work you would like to do.

Also contact your local TVET college’s advisory centre for guidance.

How do learnerships and apprenticeships differ?

Both learnerships and apprenticeships consider work experience (on-the-job) as to be a very important part of the training.

Apprenticeships are limited to technical trades, while learnerships can be for any career, for example tour leader.

Entry requirements

Apprentices entering apprenticeships should at least be 15 years of age. Each sector, such as the transport or manufacturing and engineering sector, has different approved conditions of apprenticeship regarding entry requirements etc. and you will be best advised to get information on the apprenticeship requirements from the relevant Sector Education and Training Authorities (SETAs).

Enquire at your nearest Labour Centre about these. The difference will be in terms of educational requirements, duration of the training and the modular tests.

How to apply?

One of the conditions for an apprenticeship is that unemployed people must be employed by the employer for the duration of the apprenticeship.

Unemployed people can thus only enter an apprenticeship if there is an employer who is willing to take unemployed 4 people into an apprenticeship programme.

Unemployed people can apply for an apprenticeship if there is an employer calling for applications of unemployed people.

Employers advertise in newspapers, or place adverts in the community, city, town or community

Where to enquire

Enquire at your nearest Labour Centre concerning the apprenticeship requirements per sector.

10 Steps to get Young People Working

10 Steps to get Young People Working

The summit, Accelerating Inclusive Youth Employment, which was hosted by Harambee Youth Employment Accelerator at the Spier Wine Estate in Cape Town concluded on Tuesday. Here are ten things the summit resolved to help solve SA’s crisis of youth unemployment.

1.Scale
Scale should be obtained in the growth of business process services. One way to achieve this would be to accelerate and grow foreign direct investment.

2.Technician training
Enhance training of technicians to work in installation, repair and maintenance jobs. Technician jobs can cut across multiple industries and provide a sound basis for scale.

The entry-level requirements and input costs for training technicians are considerably less and more attainable than that for artisans.

3.Digital and tech skills
Unlock and accelerate the digital and tech skills pipeline.

4.Social economy
Enable the youth to find employment pathways in the social economy in order to help them create sustainable livelihoods for themselves.

The social economy is generally defined as being distinct from the private and public sectors. It is usually not-for-profit services or activities offered in communities on a cooperative basis. An example would be teaching people how to access the internet or providing early childhood development.

5.Geographic distribution
Grow geographically distributed opportunities through real-time demand-led skills development and matching those with needs in the tourism, conservation and agriculture sector.

6.One-year work
Fund new one-year work opportunities through the Youth Employment Service (YES). YES is a collaborative economic enabler aimed at the youth and led by business in partnership with government and labour.

7.Pathway manager platform
Strengthen the pathway manager platform to take young people “from learning to earning”. According to Harambee, while many unemployed youths remain locked out of the economy, job vacancies go unfilled every year – even in low-growth economic conditions.

Young people from poorer households incur great costs looking for work and lack the social networks, work-readiness, information and exposure to find available opportunities. Many matriculants and graduates, therefore, fail to make the move from “learning to earning”, despite being sufficiently educated on paper.

A “pathway manager” would understand how to organise a spectrum of opportunities as either destinations or transition points for a young person. In this way a pathway manager can match and direct young people on their job journeys.

8.Innovative financing solutions
Innovative financing solutions should be developed to accelerate demand-focused skills development and “learning to earning” transitions for inclusive youth employment creation.

9.Reducing costs for work seekers
Interventions are needed to reduce costs for work-seekers. This can be done through interventions to provide increased connectivity solutions, transport solutions, addressing proximity challenges and providing access to in-community open learning opportunities.

10.Ongoing collaborative leadership
Ongoing collaborative leadership is essential to grow evidence and insights about inclusive employment creation for the youth that can sustain momentum and inform policy, planning solutions and lead to design and implementation at scale.

Tips to Find Jobs for YOUTH

Tips to Find Jobs for YOUTH

The most vital step to land a job is preparing for the interview.

Most of the time, only properly trained applicants go through the process feeling cool and calm.

After attending a two-day workshop last week, jobless youths from the KwaDukuza Municipality felt confident their situations would change.

The 11 young people who attended the event, organised by the municipality and the United States diplomatic mission in South Africa, received job readiness certificates on Thursday.

The workshop was aimed at people with little or no experience.

They were shown how to prepare for job interviews, create well-structured CVs, build self-confidence and apply for jobs online.

Sinenhlanhla Ncanana (22), from Shombela in Stanger, said she learned how to properly structure a CV. “I am unemployed and maybe one of the reasons I don’t get jobs is because my CV was not well structured”

Chairman of the portfolio committee on youth, sport and gender John Phahla said they appreciated the opportunity given to the youth.

He said the workshop gave them the necessary skills to apply for jobs online.

He said it was something many employers identified as a problem.

“The youth have been given an opportunity to develop their own action list on how to market themselves, prepare for interviews, search and find potential opportunities for jobs.

“We encourage the youth to use this job preparation workshop as an instrument to master every interview obstacle they might encounter,” said Phahla.
