Connecting Job Seekers with Employers

The Jobs Fair and the Employer Breakfast Session are geared towards promoting employment and learning opportunities. The latter will discuss labor market issues, prospects for growth that can create jobs, and strategic policy issues that can enhance employment creation. The establishment of Employment Centres at Germiston and Johannesburg Labour Centres is also a part of the initiative.

How to Participate

The Jobs Fair and the Employer Breakfast Session are scheduled from 6th to 7th July 2023 at NASREC. Job seekers should bring their identity documents and updated curriculum vitae for registration in the department’s work seeker database. The media is invited to attend and provide coverage, ensuring that the event reaches a broader audience and garners more attention and support.

Employment Centres Launch

The Employment Centres will be launched on 7th July 2023 at Johannesburg and Germiston Labour Centres. These Centres will facilitate job placements and provide learning opportunities for the unemployed, thereby contributing to the growth of the economy.

Minister Thulas Nxesi’s initiative is a commendable effort to address unemployment in South Africa. Through these events, job seekers have a platform to interact with potential employers, while Employment Centres will further facilitate job placements and provide learning opportunities.
