Airpot Company SA (Acsa) has responded to the government's call for state-owned enterprises to provide jobs and skills to the young and unemployed by offering learnerships in the aviation sector.
Acsa is offering 12-month learnership programmes to young South Africans that will enhance their skills and experience in the aviation security environment.
The learnerships are within the ambit of employment equity and are therefore targeted at young South Africans who were previously excluded from opportunities in the aviation industry.
The Airports Company South Africa is commited to youth and skills development in South Africa,the company said in a statement.
These positions will be filled in line with Acsa's values and employment equity policy.
Candidates who wish to apply for these opportunities should be in possession of a valid Grade 12 certificate and have a high level of integrity and trustworthiness.
Successful applicants are likely to be based at the King Shaka International Airport, near Verulam, north of Durban.
Only applicants who get a security clearance will qualify as the aviation industry is one of the sectors in which a background check for workers and a security clearance is a high priority .
Interested youth can submit their CVs to firstname.lastname@example.org or fax them on 0866963074.
