Welcome to the Job Creation Trust

The Job Creation Trust (JCT) was founded by the Trade Union movement following the National Presidential Job Summit on 30 October 1998.

The Trust was funded by contributions, donations and pledges from the members of the three Trade Union Federations (COSATU, FEDUSA, and NACTU) Communities and some businesses.

A bulk of these contributions came from the workers who donated 1% or one day’s salary to the Job Creation Trust Fund.

The Primary objective of the Trust is Job Creation and subsidiary objectives are to target projects in all the Provinces with beneficiaries including women, youth, and rural poor.


Project funding to emerging industries around South Africa. Job Creation Trust has opened its portfolio to 9 different Provinces.
