Pricing:

Careers in Africa offers three plans: Posting (three job posts), Enterprise Lite (five job posts), and Enterprise (20 job posts). Employers must arrange a demo to learn more about each plan and what it costs. However, additional job posts on the Enterprise Lite plan cost US$1,250.00 and US$750.00 on the Enterprise plan.

Review:

Careers in Africa is a recruitment platform and job board that prominent companies in Africa use to recruit new employees. Employers in Canada can use it to reach African professionals in the diaspora. However, there are no local vacancies currently being advertised on the site, so it might only be an option for recruiting remote workers.

Employers are helped to attract candidates by designing and promoting compelling employer brands. Features of the platform include an employee value proposition design tool, detailed company profiles, large network, social media sharing, recruitment support, and integrations. However, there is no resume database or local office.

Highlights:

  • Careers in Africa offers a design tool for creating an employee value proposition.
  • The talent network consists of two million professionals from Africa.
  • There are 600,000 high-level graduates and early-career candidates in the network.
  • The platform uses email, social media, and targeted job boards to promote vacancies.
  • Employers can create and easily maintain detailed company profiles.
  • Account managers are available to offer recruitment support.
  • Careers in Africa has a basic applicant tracking system.
  • Pre-screening questions can be added to job posts.
  • The site offers a French translation.

Shortcomings:

  • The employer brand profile feature is only available with Enterprise Lite and Enterprise plans.
  • Recruitment support costs 15% of the successful candidate's first-year salary.
  • Careers in Africa does not offer employers access to a resume database.
  • The company does not have offices in Canada so customer service is likely bound to U.K. working hours.
  • neuvoo and Job Bank are better for reaching African professionals living in Canada because of their local footprint.
  • neuvoo offers more affordable options.
