EOH Youth Job Creation Initiative

In July 2016, 702 joined forces with the EOH Youth Job Creation Initiative to create the ‘EOH 702 Youth Job Creation Challenge’. This challenge set out to create 100, 000 jobs by encouraging CEO’s across all industries to take up 3% of their workforce in interns and learnerships.

EOH CEO, Asher Bohbot is of the view that; “South Africa does not have a shortage of skills, it has a shortage of work-ready skills,” and by opening up the business world to learners & graduates for a year long programme of work experience, it opens up job opportunities for these candidates to be eligible for.

EOH and 702 continue to encourage CEO’s from all indutries to get involved with the EOH 702 Youth Job Creation Challenge to help create opportunities and jobs for the youth of South Africa.

To get involved and pledge your commitment to the challenge, please fill in the below form and the EOH team will get in touch with you.
