JOHANNESBURG, 18 JULY 2018
Nelson Mandela fought for social justice for 67 years. Today we celebrate Madiba’s legacy and his ideals through the belief that each individual has the power to transform the world and effect positive change. Many organisations volunteer 67 minutes of their time, this year we want to contribute by providing 67 people with employment opportunities.
Giraffe’s mission is to reduce unemployment in South Africa. Creating more opportunities for more jobseekers is our reason for being. Over the past six months we have invited over 50,000 people for interviews and placed thousands of jobseekers in full-time employment.
Even though matching jobseekers with the right jobs is our day-to-day, we want to up our game for Mandela Day. We have set up interviews across the country and aim to place 67 jobseekers in full-time positions by Friday (we hope a lot more!).
In keeping with Nelson Mandela’s beliefs that every person should have access to opportunities, we will continue well beyond Mandela Day to provide more South Africans with access to jobs and in so doing provide them with the opportunity for a better life.
We believe that by providing employment opportunities we can have a real positive impact on our country. Today we start with 67, but we won’t stop there! We challenge you to keep Madiba’s legacy alive today and always – what are you doing to make a difference this Mandela Day?
Giraffe is a job board that automatically screens candidates so you don’t have to. Giraffe enables South African businesses to recruit medium-skilled staff faster and more affordably than any other recruitment method. Because Giraffe has automated the boring parts of the recruitment process– candidate sourcing and screening– business owners and recruiters can focus on more important tasks like interviewing the best candidates and managing retention. Simply post a job on Giraffe. Let Giraffe automatically screen candidates as they apply. Log in, see which candidates have passed your screening, listen to their voice notes and hire the best ones!
