Kenyan e-recruitment startup Jobsikaz is helping SMEs talent-source more effectively via its online platform, which it claims reduces the workload, time and money spent on recruitment by up to 70 percent by providing tech-powered order and interaction mechanisms.
Launched last year, Jobsikaz provides a ready database of qualified CVs across various categories, shortlisting tools that enable users to select the best candidates at a click, and assessment tools for employers to administer on candidates.
Founder and chief executive officer Sophy Mwale told Disrupt Africa that in a job market with millions of job seekers and employers alike, most SMEs are ill-equipped with recruitment knowledge and resources, and therefore unable to scour the market for qualified talent.
Jobsikaz has developed a shared e-recruitment platform for use by employers with limited recruitment skills and time, which can be accessed at the smallest of costs.
“We have achieved this by organising job seekers in a virtual space and providing employers fine search and selection tools to sift through and assess the jobseekers as per their requirements. We are gearing to be the Amazon of e-recruitment on the continent,” she said.
