Start Hiring. Start Saving. Start Growing.

With the national youth unemployment rate at more than 50%, South Africans can no longer rely solely on big businesses and government to create jobs. SMME growth in South Africa is slower than expected because they face several challenges including maintaining profitability, unpredictable cash flow and securing financing for the business expansion, which includes hiring staff.

Funded internship programmes are, therefore, a lifeline to both SMME’s and the unemployed. In this guide, we explain how businesses – both large and small – can leverage available funding in order to create jobs and grow their business.

Included in the guide:
