With the mindset to further develop Africa, 14 young Africans were given a duty with the obligation of creating and managing the Job Arena of WealthBankers. And now, they have successfully launched an online Job Arena for unemployed Africans and expatriates living in Africa.
This team comprised of 14 young Africans (youngest being 16) who were complete strangers originally employed by CyprusUni (a Study in Europe Education Consultancy) another member of the Global Wealth Innovations’ network of about 20 companies. The WealthBankers Job Arena was supposed to be their final training project to be completed in six months. But with their gusto and exceptionalism they completed it just 2.5 months. The entire financing of the project was provided by WealthBankers.
This team has come to be known as ‘Team Exhort’. When asked to elaborate on the reason behind this peculiar name, the youngest, Jane stated:
“We wanted to change the African story and present Africa in the light of its budding youth who are full of potentials and yearn for such opportunities to show their capabilities. We wanted to be known as one who magnifies and encourages the large African youthful populace to achieve more and aim higher”
Observing the proliferating level of unemployment in their continent, these young Africans did not only limit the job search to their country. But they broadened their latitude to most parts of Africa as well!
Currently, the Job Arena developed by these talented individuals has over 500 jobs available on the site from about 200 international companies and these jobs are available in 19 English speaking countries. They are planning to expand its reach to the whole of Africa in the very near future.
The site was developed with unemployed Africans and expatriates living in Africa in mind. Since there are many expatriates living in Africa, most of them would at a point in time search for employment in their region or in other African countries they plan to visit. This impressive Job Board has made provision for that as well.
It is very effective and simple to operate. Individuals who usually visit the site or follow the social media of the Job Board are encouraged to submit their CVs in order for interested employers to easily find them. This means that sometimes an individual would not even officially apply for a job on the site but would be called for employment because an employer spotted and was impressed by their CV.
It is also an ideal place for employers to advertise their jobs because it is a very budget friendly site. Employers pay an amount of $15 USD for their job advert. And the beautiful thing is, all adverts are treated with equal importance irrespective of the size of the company.
