Njorku, an African Startup Portrait

Njorku the "google" for job search in Africa is revolutionizing the way Africans search for jobs and how employers connect to them. We are tapping into the power of internet and mobile technology to deliver thousands of jobs to our users and connecting them to the right employer. We have been listed by Forbes as one of the top tech startups in Africa. Our goal is to help millions of candidates seeking employment or career shifts per month and thousands of employers and recruiters trying to connect with these candidates.
Why : The founder of Njorku is Churchill Mambe Nanje, who is the owner of a consultancy company in Cameroon named AfroVisioN Group Ltd. While recruiting new staff, Churchill was frustrated by the lack of a single tool or platform that he could use to search for potential employees. He also noticed that those searching for a job faced a similar problem - even those proficient on the Internet did not know where to go to find indexed and up-to-date vacancies online. Impact : In the past, those searching for a job had no single platform they could access in order to find vacancies. Through Njorku, the process is made much more accessible and convenient. Every day, jobseekers can search for the exact kind of job they want, and vacancies from recruiters and job websites across its seven markets will appear. Similarly, recruiters now have access to huge numbers of suitable prospective employees who have been suggested to them through the Njorku service.
Njorku management team is comprised of savvy entrepreneurs and industry experts, bringing years of experience to a young company. They cultivate our strong culture, and work tirelessly to help our team scale, grow, and succeed. Competitive Advantages : 1st to Market Ease of Use Understanding of African Markets Strong passion for Engineering large scale and Big Data solutions in Africa
Njorku processes and delivers about 1.2 million of job offers to its job seekers community.
We charge employers a fee to send contextual and highly targeted email and sms alerts to professionals in our database.
We are looking for funding to develop our service in other african countries. In fact, our service has expanded to nine african markets. Having launched simultaneously in Cameroon and Nigeria in March 2011, within months Njorku had spread to South Africa, Kenya, Ghana, Uganda, Ivory coast, Senegal and Egypt.
