Leading Digital Recruitment Company, Jobberman Ghana, has launched its new business direction and focus under the umbrella of its new parent company, The African Talent Company (TATC), in a brief ceremony held at the Holiday Inn Hotel in Accra, on Friday 27th May 2022.
Speaking on the theme “Unlocking the next level of talent management in Africa”, CEO of Jobberman, Hilda Nimo – Tieku explained that in addition to digital recruitment, Jobberman Ghana is now a career and talent management company with a 360 focus on both digital and hybrid recruitment, manpower outsourcing, partnerships, and business training.
“For the past years, we have been operating as a subsidiary of Ringier One Africa Media (ROAM), the parent company housing various brands with the primary mission of connecting Africans to opportunities.
Today, we are transforming and becoming more dynamic as a talent acquisition company with a focus on unlocking the next level of talent management”, she said.
She continued that the jobs brands, including Jobberman Ghana, will now be operating as a subsidiary under the more extensive umbrella of The African Talent Company (TATC), alongside Jobberman Nigeria and BrighterMonday Kenya and BrighterMonday Uganda.
On her part, CEO of The African Talent Company, Hilda Kragha, from being pacesetters and leaders in the industry connecting job seekers to employers, the business now seeks to become Africa’s solution to bridging the talent gap, pointing out that TATC is ready to partner with like-minded organizations to bridge the unemployment gap in Africa.
“We have expanded our work as leaders in the digital market places. Now we are ready to partner with like-minded organizations to help bridge the gap in unemployment in Africa.
This means as we expand our mandate, we want job seekers to benefit from us as a business and remain more relevant to the labour market of today and tomorrow. This is our way of contributing to driving change in Africa. In addition to this, we remain committed to investing in the e-learning space and partnering with organizations that are determined to cause a change in that regard”, she added.
Regarding partnerships, Jobberman currently signed an MOU with the Youth Opportunity and Transformation Africa (YOTA) in Accra to jointly train young people preparing for the world of work and connect them to employment opportunities in Ghana.
Jobberman Ghana is also in a partnership with the Ghana Communication Technology University (GCTU) with the focus of providing internship opportunities to students to prepare them for the labor market.
The journey of partnering with like-minded organizations to drive this cause had been in the pipeline since last year.
In November 2021, Jobberman Ghana and GIZ collaborated and held a C-Suit Coffee chat with the aim of sensitizing, connecting, and networking with executive industry experts, human resource managers, and tertiary education administrators to discuss critical subject matters of labor market trends and needs assessment in our tertiary institutions in relation to preparing tertiary students for the labor market.
The event brought together key stakeholders of the business, including Herbert Pasimire, Group Head of Finance for The African Talent Company, (TATC), Emmanuel Edudzie, Executive Director of YOTA, and representatives from GIZ, Stratosphere, Ecobank Ghana, Sunda International, among others.
Jobberman Ghana is poised for the transformational journey ahead and believes this will go a long way to grow businesses by providing the right human resources as well as deepening relationships with stakeholders to drive change.
