Jobberman Launches Initiative to Ease Entry-level Employment
By Adedapo Adesanya
Online job platform, Jobberman, has launched an employer-focused initiative – Jobberman Starter Promo – aimed at contributing to employment growth and providing an enabling environment for employers looking to give young talents a head start.
The initiative launched this month is an offshoot of its ongoing partnership with Mastercard Foundation’s Young Africa Works and will allow companies to utilize Jobberman’s job listing product for free, over the next three months for jobs that require between 0-3 years of experience.
The platform noted that over the years, it has continued to bridge the gap between improving candidate uptake and facilitating entry into companies by supporting mass recruitment, entry-level jobs, internships, and graduate-level jobs.
The Jobberman starter Promo is designed to attract employers interested in posting entry-level job listings on the platform by offering free credit listing for the job.
With its partnership with Mastercard Foundation, the mission is to upskill over a million Nigerian youths, matching them with dignified job opportunities.
Speaking on this, Mr Oreoluwa Boboye, CEO of Jobberman, said, “We are West Africa’s number one career platform because we ensure that we connect the right candidates with the right opportunities. We have built careers over the years and will continue to support Nigerian youth with the right employment opportunities.”
“With our experience and level of expertise, we have identified the gaps in improving candidates; uptake into companies and seek to remove the barriers.
“This is why we launched the Jobberman Starter Promo. With this, we will bridge the gap between employers in Nigeria and the entry-level job seekers in the country,” he noted.
Jobberman Nigeria is a part of The African Talent Company, a group of pan-African businesses working together to solve the talent gap in Africa with unique, home-grown solutions.
The Jobberman Starter Promo initiative and its partnership with the Mastercard Foundation advance its commitment to solving talent issues in the country and contributing to reducing Nigeria’s unemployment rate.
Jobberman says it intends to continue being Nigeria’s most user-centric and transparent career platform and called on interested candidates for the initiative to visit www.jobberman.com/employer/entrylevel and get started.
