2. Recruitment of Young Unemployed Graduates for the project on Digitization of Department of Home Affairs Civic Paper Records

The Department has more than 350 million inactive and active paper records, and a decision was taken to prioritize the digitisation of birth, marriage, and amendment records. The identified category of records dates back to 1895, which necessitates care and reliable systems that will bear tolerance for digitization purposes. Most of the inactive records are historical civil registration records multiplied in manuscript format and need urgent restoration, preservation, and reconstruction.

As such the Department plans to convert all such related records through digitizing hard copy records to electronic format, for easier handling and storage thereof. The project to digitize all of its civic records has been commissioned; the primary object of the digitization of records is to enable the optimum realization of its core mandate, and as such, records will be easily accessed for service delivery purposes.

The secondary objective seeks to contribute to youth empowerment and enhance youth employability. The DHA therefore seeks to contribute to the employment creation goals and strategic priorities of the Presidential Youth Employment Initiative (PYEI) by acquiring unemployed youth on a fixed-term contract basis to assist with the digitization of its civic records.

The Department, in collaboration with the Department of Employment and Labour calls for youth in the 18-35 age bracket and people with Disabilities (PWDs), to register on ESSA and apply for this enriching opportunity. Candidates that are already registered on ESSA do not have to visit the Labour Centres and can apply for these positions online. During the tenure of the contract, the youth will receive continuous learning and development interventions to improve their skills for optimal performance and to equip them for future employment and/or entrepreneurial opportunities.
