South African youth has been given a lifeline by the department of basic education through the presidential youth employment initiative. The post are coming back for the second time after they were terminated at the end of May.
The new posts will run from the 1st of November to the 31st March 2022. The stipend will be more than R3800 before the Unemployment Insurance Fund deduction.
A lot of unemployed youth have been trying to access the provided website with little to no success. This has created a lot of frustration for the young people who are eager to get to work.
The department of education has issued a circular on their Facebook page trying to assist the frustrated youth. Those who are struggling to access the youth Mobi website are encouraged to contact them using the provided toll free number between 09H00 and 16H30.
If the phone rings and it sounds like there is no one on the other end it could be because they have a high call volume. You can then use the provided email or visit their Facebook page.
Last year there were two platforms to choose from and this was during the time when the pandemic was raging without any vaccines. Job seekers were allowed to submit CVs at schools or use the youth Mobi website.
The department should allow the submission of the CVs at schools before they have a protest on their hands. A lot of unemployed young people are fighting for the less than 300 000 posts.
The requirements for the posts include, having a metric or higher qualification, be a South African, be between the age of 18 and 35, not have a criminal record and must not be receiving any grant for tertiary studies.
Be mindful of the closing date which is the 3rd of October 2021.
