Johannesburg – Gauteng youths are being alerted to thousands of jobs that will be advertised on 16 June 2023.
These jobs under the Nasi Ispani project will be on a permanent basis and offered by government funding.
The jobs include drivers, receptionists, cleaners, artisans, security managers, and social workers.
Spokesperson to the Premier, Vuyo Mhaga, said the jobs are not limited to the under-35-year-olds only.
Its a Youth Month, in line with 47th Commemoration of June 16, but the jobs are not only limited to the youth as anyone who qualifies can apply, Mhaga said.
Mhaga said the Nasi Ispani project has already seen 6 000 young people employed as crime prevention wardens.
The crime wardens were launched and unveiled to the public at Soshanguve and Tsakane stadiums respectively after undergoing training in crime prevention.
Gauteng Premier Panyaza Lesufi said 8 000 permanent jobs will be advertised during the commemoration of June 16.
We are sending a message to all young people that are unemployed that we are ready to employ you in Gauteng. We dont want to celebrate June 16 being unemployed. We are tired of unemployment,” said Premier Lesufi.
He further said another 6 000 new jobs will be advertised in July for Gauteng to give more people opportunities to fight poverty in the province.
Premier Lesufi said 35 000 applications were received by 8 June 2023 – the deadline for the Skills and Training for solar technicians in the province.
