Employment and Labour has published some pointers on how to identify barriers set against jobseekers in securing suitable employment, in light of the high unemployment rate.
The Department of Employment and Labour (DEL) published some pointers to help in identifying and overcoming barriers to accessing employment opportunities on Thursday, 2 September 2021. The department noted that people are in desperate need of employment, but there are certain barriers associated with the high unemployment rate.
The department identified a lack of work experience as being one barrier to employment, recommending that jobseekers consider volunteering to gain the necessary experience. In addition, educational qualifications have been identified as a way to increase jobseekers’ chances of becoming employable.
A lack of information as well as a limited number of employment opportunities are also a hindrance in securing employment. The department encouraged people to do more research on different business opportunities and organisations that are offering workshops and funding to people who are considering growing their own business. It further suggested that jobseekers utilise services and platforms offering guidance on employment opportunities.
