Unemployed youth in Ghana now have a better opportunity of not just finding jobs and growing their businesses, but harnessing their talents through learning and upskilling for their personal development.
This is because Ghana’s leading online recruitment platform, Jobberman Ghana, and its mother company, The African Talent Company (TATC), have unveiled the ‘Unlocking the next level of talent management in Africa’ project to bridge the talent gap in Ghana and Africa as a whole.
For the past ten years, the online recruitment platform, Jobberman Ghana, has connected professionals to their dream jobs and helped thousands of companies to hire the right fit in the most efficient, fast, and cost-effective way.
Since its launch in Ghana in 2012, the company has emerged as one of the most trusted human resource partners for businesses in the country, building a repertoire of over 600,000 qualified CVs and creating hundreds of active jobs per day for more than 21,000 employers.
As part of efforts to give more job seekers and African youth thelp, Jobberman Ghana, and its mother company, The African Talent Company, have expanded their mandate to cover the full spectrum of African talent management by addressing challenges that exist in labour markets on the continent.
With the launch of this new brand, TATC is better equipped to meet employers where they are and effectively match them with the best talent recruiters, have access to a more robust catalogue of human resource solutions and services that are tailored and designed to be accessible across a wide range of requirement.
Chief Executive Officer of The African Talent Company, Hilda Kragha, outlined to Citi Business News what the new project comprised of.
“We want to focus not just on digital recruitment which are market leaders in all our markets. But also move on to a lot of hybrid recruitment, meeting the customer where they are whether it’s off site or online, outsourcing and BPO which are new ways of working in our markets, and finally also working with partnerships that aim at up skilling job seekers and preparing them for work.”
“This is to make sure that job seekers on the platform also get benefits beyond just finding a job. How do they grow, build their careers, understand how to be successful in the workplace? This is the goal of TATC and the reason why we’ve expended our mandate such that we can be more relevant to the labour market of today and tomorrow.”
Hilda Nimo-Tieku, Chief Executive Officer of Jobberman Ghana, said this new mandate fall into the government’s plan of bridging the unemployment gap in the country.
“We want to do more so we are trying to get more employers to come with us. In the past, we were just a job portal where people come in and place their jobs but now, we can help people train to be better at their jobs. We do mentoring, coaching sessions and CV clinics. So we’re expanding the scope and we felt it will be good to rebrand so people can come to us for their needs.”
