Connect ME – AgriSETA’s match making APP that links job seekers and employers in the agriculture sector

Connect ME is a job seeker-employer match making platform, which allows a job seeker to upload a Curriculum Vitae (CV) and an employer, to search for the relevant skills and criteria from a large and growing database in the agriculture sector.

The name leans on that of AgriSETA’s monthly stakeholder Newsletter, which is called Connect. In brief the Connect ME App’s serves AgriSETA’s objectives to help contribute to the goals of the NDP, to create one million decent jobs by 2030. It also serves to demonstrate the success of the SETA’s work, by linking newly acquired skills and graduates with employers.

The App accommodates new ways of helping graduates, and indeed, the entire agricultural labour force to find work by having ‘direct’ access to (registered) industry employers; and similarly, giving employers access to skilled and qualified work seekers in the agriculture sector.

We are hoping to change the lives of our youth through Connect ME. It will help to fast-track recruitment of young graduates, fill a gap for unemployed people in the agricultural sector, and especially those who hope to be employed after obtaining newly acquired skills – no matter their age, because as a SETA, we serve to encourage lifelong learning.

You may download the App from the Apple or Google stores – and we have included an explanatory video.

CV’s can also be uploaded on our website – AgriSETA
