Ward councillor, Peter Helfrich, has been visiting local businesses to speak to them about their corporate social responsibilities and the important role he hopes they can play in uplifting his community.
‘’I met, in August, with the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and the National Human Resources Manager of Rheinmetall Denel Munition (RDM) to thank them for the employment, educational and business opportunities they have created for the residents of our ward since our last meeting in February. We also spoke about creating a centre where residents could receive assistance and access to resources to find employment. I was so happy when they called me three months later to inform me that the Career Community Centre was ready,” said Helfrich.
“RDM wants to support our neighbours in Macassar with a fully-fledged Career Centre. This Career Centre is solely dedicated to empowering job seekers with necessary skills to compete in the job market. The facility boast with internet access, computers and themed programmes.” – said CEO of RDM Jan Patrick Helmsen
