Unemployed youth score job opportunities

21 Dec,2016WoF Recruitment

The lives of a number of young men and women from Rooiberg Village in Waterberg will never be the same again as they bid farewell to being unemployed.

Working on Fire Limpopo conducted a recruitment drive at Rooiberg where they are opening a new base. More than 80 youth responded to the call and gathered at Rooiberg to try their luck at the physically demanding recruitment evaluation.

The recruitment assessment included running a 2,4km run, and completing 40 push ups and 40 sit ups, all within set time limits. The youth were all eager to secure a spot in the new team and gave it their all. Unfortunately there were only positions for 23 people in the end, who will be taken for medical checkups as the final stage of recruitment.

The successful recruits will be trained in Nelspruit in advanced firefighting. Some will be trained as first-aiders and SHE representatives and others will undergo other courses. With this recruitment drive WOF has once again contributed to the reduction of unemployment and poverty in marginalised communities.
