The Department of Social Development has called on all unemployed social workers and auxiliary social workers to register on the department's database by 31 March 2019.

Hope for unemployed social workers

This, the department said in a statement, is to keep a record of unemployed qualified graduates in the two fields.

“This call serves as a response to the broader government goal of facilitating access to employment and economic opportunities for young people in the country.  

“This will be a pool of all unemployed social work graduates who will be considered for employment opportunities, irrespective of the source of funding for their studies.

“The database will also help to inform the department about the number of unemployed social work graduates, who have studied outside the Social Development Scholarship Programme, thus enabling efficient planning and the inclusion of all social work graduates into the government recruitment system,” said department spokesperson Lumka Oliphant.

Provincial Departments of Social Development were from 2013 unable to absorb social work graduates into the system due to a lack of funding. This led to the current backlog and an increase in the number of unemployed social workers and auxiliary social workers.
