Hire / Rent Students

Rent / Hire Students

We operate as a Non Profit Company and have been providing students work placements for over 10 years.

We ONLY provide pre-registered reliable students who are post-matric, approachable, tech savvy and have registered with us to better their future chances of getting full-time work or careers. Basically they are aged 17- 30 and want to get ahead not just earn a few Rand. With over 60,000 students, any job is possible, at any time, in any location. We are countrywide and have worked with many well known companies as well as local SME’s and other Non-Profits. Approximately 20% of our students are distance learners with plenty of free time, so we can offer longer more full-time placements as well as the typical “I need some students to hand out flyers next weekend”. We also offer more “work from home position” than anyone else ranging from accounts, labeling (digital images) to transcription services.

We do not do commission only jobs. A basic pay, “per job” rate is always needed. A hire rate card is available on request, but R350 is the minimum per student per job rate (even if the job is 1 hour).

We would like to thank you for your inquiry, and assure you that we get nothing but complements from every placement we undertake. Students need our assistance and the work experience / extra income for their studies. Help us, help them, help you.

For more information about us see HERE.
