Finding employment in South Africa’s dire unemployment crisis maybe quite difficult.

Graduates are not landing jobs, which is much-talked about.

The same energy should be given to those who want to work but do not have a tertiary education. They are ready, capable and willing to enter the world of work.

However, they face many more challenges than those who have higher education.

Some of the jobs below state that a tertiary education would be “advantageous,” but this does not mean it is a necessity.

Here are some jobs in the Western Cape that are perfect for those who only have Matric:
