Our client is a social enterprise changing the way the informal economy trades. Our digital marketplace connects informal micro-enterprises with local customers living in informal settlements (townships) looking for their services or products. Whether a resident of a township needs to paint their nails, get their hair done, or buy the latest sneaker, they provide them with a one-stop-shop they can trust. Informal micro-enterprises that sign-up pay commission on each job completed, and get access to formal supply chains, the marketplace, and training so they can grow with their businesses.
Since launch, we have completed thousands of orders, generating over R1.5M for informal businesses. This impact has led us to successfully building partnerships with Old Mutual, representing South Africa in the Dubai Expo 2020 Innovation Awards, and recently becoming a seed fund winner of SAB’s 2020 Social Innovation Awards.
We are looking for bright, energetic, team players, who are target driven individuals to join our User Support team. The role involves closing deals, while also providing excellent user support for both our businesses (Partners) and our customers (Users).
If you are a go getter with a can do attitude, who doesn’t give up easily then this role is for you.
