Do I have to pay to apply to Harambee?

No. Harambee Youth Employment Accelerators is a free service to work-seekers. The only cost in applying is for transport to our assessment centres. Be aware that there are many scam artists posing as Harambee employees who take money from candidates and “guarantee” them a position. These people are criminals: you must never pay anything to anyone promising you a place at Harambee.

What are the basic requirements for becoming a Harambee?

To become a Harambee, you have to:

  • Be 18 to 28 years old
  • Be a South African citizen
  • Have a matric

How long is the assessment?

Expect to be at our centre for about five hours. First we give you a Harambee overview, then you will write a computer assessment and receive feedback on your assessment. There may also be interview training on the day to prepare you for potential interviews.

What happens if I don’t pass the assessment?

You may not be suitable for a specific job we are recruiting for but Harambee will keep your details on our database. If you meet the requirements for a new job that becomes available we will contact you.

If I fail the assessment can I reapply to redo the assessment?

No, you can’t reapply to Harambee. Once you have had your first assessment we will have your information on our database and will call you back for any opportunity that matches your profile.

If I get a job through Harambee but don’t like it, can I come back for more bridging?

No, you can’t. Once you get a job you are removed from our system.

Will the bridging guarantee me a job?

No process at Harambee guarantees you a job. We try to facilitate opportunities and links with businesses for young people, but it is up to you to get the job.

How can I get my friends to apply?

Give them our email, mobisite and website details.

Can I work at Harambee?

We only recruit through our assessment processes. We do not accept CVs for casual work in our assessment and sourcing teams.

Absa ReadytoWorkprogramme

The initiative aims to bridge the divide between education and the world of work.

Absa, part of the Barclays Africa Group, today announced the launch in South Africa of ‘ReadytoWork,’ an employability initiative that helps to train and equip young people for the world of work.

This follows the successful roll-out of the initiative in six of the countries in which Barclays Africa operates – Zambia, Seychelles, Botswana, Kenya, Mauritius and Zimbabwe, and after receiving support from the MEC of Education in Gauteng the curriculum is now available in some schools across the province, with further schools to follow in Limpopo and Free State.

ReadytoWork is a free training curriculum that seeks to empower young people with the training and skills they need to enhance their employability and entrepreneurial prospects. It provides access to world class learning content, focused on work, people, money and entrepreneurial skills, through online content, face-to-face training and work exposure.

One of the key focus areas for Barclays Africa is Education and Skills Development, primarily to help the next generation get the skills and opportunities they need to transition into work or entrepreneurship.

Sazini Mojapelo, Barclays Africa Head of Citizenship says: “A key priority of our Citizenship strategy is to help young people gain access to the skills and opportunities they need to unlock their potential. We have identified education and skills development as a space in which it can make a sustainable contribution through initiatives such as ReadytoWork. Our launch here comes at an opportune time, helping young people across the country who have completed their exams to prepare for the next phase in their lives – the world of work.”

In South Africa, more than 30%[1] of young people are unemployed and under-employed, highlighting how critical it is that young people are provided with the practical skills they need to successfully make the critical transition from education to the world of work.

ReadytoWork aims to support job seekers and entrepreneurs who have the aptitude, attitude, and ambition to achieve beyond the opportunities that have been given to them. The ultimate goal is to give young people a choice to either better develop their employability prospects or to become self-employed through starting their own businesses.

You can register for the ReadytoWork programme by visiting the Absa website at: www.absa.co.za/readytowork
