What we do for first-time job seekers

DWDE is a free service that helps young South Africans with disabilities overcome many of the difficulties they face in finding and keeping their first job. Our assessments and training help you get into and stay in a job over a longer time.

We help young people with a matric or equivalent qualification that are looking for a full-time job but haven’t been able to find one. We also help young people who have a university degree or other tertiary qualifications but haven’t been able to find a job.

Most people find their jobs through a social network – school or university, friends, family or previous work experience. For people who don’t have these social networks, networks that link to jobs, finding a job is difficult. DWDE works to create this kind of social network for entry-level job-seekers.

So if you are ambitious, have never worked before but really want a successful future, join us and we will try to help you!
