UnlockD is a youth talent development business focused on preparing young job seekers to kick start their careers. We offer integrated training and development solutions to ease unemployed and unskilled youth into the world of work. We source unemployed and unskilled talent; unlock their potential; and place them in our network of partners for work-experience and employment.
Our model integrates work-relevant training with on-the-job experience to increase candidate employability. We measure our impact not by the number of people who come through our doors, but by the quality of full time employment our candidates secure after completing our various accredited training and work-experience programmes.
To eradicate unemployment one skilled and work-ready candidate at a time.
To Source, Unlock and Place unemployed youth into opportunity and career oriented jobs.
To build a collaborative ecosystem of candidates, sponsors, clients and partners that drives empowerment.
We believe sustainable youth empowerment is achieved by driving an integrated end-to-end training and developing solution focused on identifying raw talent from South Africa’s expansive pool of unemployed and unskilled youth.
Our focus and commitment to talent, careers and impact has helped us grow from working with four young people in 2014 to placing more than 300 talented candidates into entry-and-support-level jobs in a variety of different industries.
