Since, its inception, Umuzi has tirelessly committed itself to be a community that offers a home for creatives. We are passionate educators that aim to develop the next generation of Strategists, Coders, Multimedia storytellers and Creatives (Copywriters / Conceptual Designers) through human centred design.
Art is often seen as more of a hobby than a career in many communities in South Africa. Therefore many of our recruits enter our space with little confidence. They haven’t yet felt encouraged to pursue their passion. A large part of what we do centres around developing the confidence to see yourself as an artist who can make a career doing what you love.There has never been a more exciting time to be a black creative than right now! We’ve witnessed our alumni and current recruits owning and telling their stories through their art, continuously contributing their voice and celebrating original narratives.We take pride in being a space that gives creatives a chance to choose who they want to become. Our academy is where one comes to learn and get paid for it through our learnership program. This way, our recruits never have to pay to study.
With many current and potential students facing exclusion from higher education because of unaffordable fees and outdated methods of education, Umuzi offers itself as a solution that provides access to tailored and innovative education that ensures young people can start meaningful careers in the creative sector.
Year in and year out, with every recruitment campaign, Umuzi attracts applicants from all over the country, even enticing attention from other parts of the continent. Because Cape Town has also brought in large numbers of applicants, we thought it best to make a second home out of the friendly city!
We’ve also witnessed that the industry in Cape Town is in dire need of transformation and desegregation. Umuzi aims to facilitate the coming together of young aspiring creatives and organizations that need more authentic content.
Yes, Cape Town, you heard right! Recruitment is now open, the door has widened for you also join our community of award-winning creatives.
We’re excited to announce our first ever Cape Town recruitment. Apply now and give yourself the opportunity of following your passion! CLICK HERE TO APPLY NOW
