When we founded Giraffe in 2015, we had one objective in mind and that was to tackle South Africa’s unemployment problem head on. Unemployment is arguably the biggest issue facing South African society today, with over 25% of the population lacking dependable income. We noticed that a common issue facing South African employers is staff attrition. Employers have positions to fill and job seekers need employment, so they often ‘take what they can get’. But this culture of job seekers settling for any job and employers settling for any candidate is problematic, as job seekers soon leave for a better opportunities or jobs closer to home.
