OneMoney to create 1000 jobs
The future looks promising for state-owned mobile telecommunication operator NetOne. With many industries and companies either closing shop or retrenching the country’s second-largest mobile operator through its OneMoney has embarked on a drive to recruit 1 000 agents.
Since its inception late last year in October, OneMoney has been embraced by the public, recording a growth of 291 percent in the third quarter of the year. And this new development of job creation has raised hope among thousands of unemployed youth.
The ball has started rolling with 280 youth in Harare and Bulawayo already recruited on the ongoing national programme.
Although there is a minimum requirement of A-Level (since it is a banking product which requires knowledge) and an age group between 19 and 30 years, it is a reasonable requirement considering the thousands of A-Level and University graduates in the streets.
With its fast-growing market share, one can be forgiven to be optimistic that more agents will be recruited sooner than later as the public is positively embracing the facility.
Due to its very low charges of $0.05 on a transaction, OneMoney will attract many investors and business people. Ecocash charges $0.11, the same charger by Telecash per transaction to a registered number.
Hope this year will bring growth to Netone’s Mobile Money Subscription Market share and to bring stiff competition to Ecocash.
