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 employees. It is based in the U.K., and employers there should consider using it to recruit from Africa and Europe. There are few local vacancies advertised on the site, suggesting that it might be best for recruiting remote workers.

The platform focuses on building and promoting compelling employer branding to attract candidates, and features include an employee value proposition design tool. Detailed company profiles, large network, social media sharing, recruitment support, and integrations are also on offer. However, there is no resume database.

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 company is headquartered in London.
  • Careers in Africa has a larger audience in Africa than JobServe.

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.
  • JobServe and CV-Library are better options for reaching the African diaspora in the U.K.
