Employment Access Programme

Our Objective

The Employment Access Programme aims to promote socioeconomic integration of asylum seekers, refugees, migrants and South Africans “in need" by facilitating access to employment.

Our objectives are to:

  • – To provide beneficiaries with resources and support needed for successful employment applications.
  • – To facilitate training in vocational skills that support entry level employment
  • – To increase employers awareness of and use of the Job Placement Service and to facilitate the recruitment and placement of job ready  beneficiaries upon request from employers
  • – To promote the inclusion of professional beneficiaries (foreign professionals) into the relevant formal occupational sectors
