The National Youth Development Agency is calling all unemployed graduates between the ages of 18 and 35 to register on their JOBS database. If you are struggling to find a job; have done a learnership or a skills development programme and things aren’t moving for you or if you are a matriculant, then JOBS can help you.

JOBS, which is short for Job and Opportunities Seekers’ Database, is a free online database and is part of the Unemployed Graduates Initiative, which was launched in December 2005.


Graduates must meet the following criteria:

  • unemployed South African citizens between the ages of 18 and 35 years
  • graduated with a three-year qualification (national diploma or a university degree) in any field of study
  • graduated with a postgraduate qualification (BTech, honors degree, master’s degree, or Ph.D.) in any field of study.

People with disabilities

JOBS has received many requests from employers for people with disabilities. So, if you are a person with a disability and want to be considered for a job, you are also welcome to register on the JOBS database.
