Installation, repair and maintenance sector

Since 2019, the National Business Initiative has been spearheading multifaceted and multisector partnerships focused on growing pathways for young people to access installation, repair and maintenance (IRM) occupations.

Artisanal skills can be useful in supporting the journey and transition to a green economy. Through various industry and sector opportunities, tradespeople and small, micro and medium enterprises (SMMEs) in the IRM space can take advantage of this move to a green economy. There are opportunities to support the below focus areas outlined by the South African government.
