That is why initiatives like this are so vital if we are to get more people employed and get Cape Town back to business.</p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img class="responsive" src="http://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/LULAWAY2.jpg" alt="" style="width:1185px;" /> </figure></span><p>Job seekers are able to register on Lulaway’s online recruitment portal for free at <a href="http://www.lulaway.co.za/registercapetown" target="_blank">www.lulaway.co.za/registercapetown</a>.
