Khumba Iron Ore is a supplier of high-quality iron ore, the company’s Sishen Mine employs 11 thousand employees, and about 78% of the workforce is from the Northern Cape. 

In his input, Premier Dr Zamani Saul highlighted the importance of the mine improving the socio-economic profile of our communities and the importance of partnerships to create jobs for the people of the Northern Cape.

The delegation also visited some of Khumba Iron Ore projects, one of which was the technical training centre, SIVOS, where they produce artisans in the following trades, diesel, millwright, electrical as well as auto electrical trades, amongst others. 

The biggest challenge we are faced with in the Province is the mismatch between jobs available and skills required, this is what the SIVOS technical training centre is addressing, and this serves as an opportunity for possible partnerships between the centre and the Northern Cape construction company.

The Northern Cape Provincial Government remains committed to building partnerships with social partners to better the lives of the people of the Northern Cape.
