Vodacom, through its youth segment platform NXT LVL, recently launched the Future Jobs Finder portal to provide career guidance and access to training content to enhance the prospects of South Africa's youth in the digital economy.
"It's estimated that 65% of children entering primary school will find themselves in new occupations that don't currently exist today. The question is: are we prepared for this evolution and how do we help the youth prepare for these jobs?" chief HR officer at Vodacom, Matimba Mbungela, said at the launch event in Johannesburg.
The 'future jobs' program aims to answer this question and is part of a larger digital skills and jobs initiative from Vodacom's parent company, Vodafone. The program aims reach up to 10 million young people across 18 countries, including South Africa.
