Mobile phone penetration continues to surge across the continent, as does smartphone adoption. As a result, a number of African mobile apps are being developed for practical purposes – ranging from eye testing to payments to recruitment.
However, although smartphones are becoming more common, relatively few people in Africa have them. Even in Johannesburg, South Africa, smartphone penetration is estimated to be only 25% overall, and less than 18% in the medium-skilled jobseeker segment. It is for this reason that Giraffe’s mobile recruitment app works on any cellphone that can access the internet- not just smartphones.
Giraffe is a job board that automatically screens candidates so you don’t have to. Giraffe enables South African businesses to recruit medium-skilled staff faster and more affordably than any other recruitment method. Because Giraffe has automated the boring parts of the recruitment process– candidate sourcing and screening– business owners and recruiters can focus on more important tasks like interviewing the best candidates and managing retention. Simply post a job on Giraffe. Let Giraffe automatically screen candidates as they apply. Log in, see which candidates have passed your screening, listen to their voice notes and hire the best ones!
