Tsantsabane Labour Desk

SOCIO-ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT - SED

One of Jasper’s goals as a Power Company is to make contributions to the local communities that can lead to a more socially stable environment.

 

The Labour Desk's purpose is to:

  • Assist members of the community in typing their CV’s;
  • and link companies with unemployed members of the community looking for work.

 

Jasper purchased the following in order to get the

labour Desk operational:

  • A container to provide office space for the desk.
  • Three laptops for the desk.
  • Office furniture for the container.
  • We provided Wi-Fi installation, and have agreed to purchase IT data for the desk as and when it is required.
  • Pay a stipend to the Labour Desk administrator in order to assist in the on-going operations of the desk.

 

We believe that this project continues to be a success, and has to date managed to find full-time employment for approximately 30 individuals who reside within Postmasburg. Furthermore, the desk has also facilitated learnerships and part-time employment for the people of Tsantsabane.

 

Our partnership with the Tsantsabane Municipality on the Tsantsabane Labour Desk came to an end in January 2018. The Municipality has decided to implement a different project initiative for labour recruitment within the community and Jasper will no longer be part of this project initiative going forward.
