Find the career that you love in Gambia
Typical Job Seeker Pain Points across Africa – How can afringa help you?
Your time is valuable. Our video recruiting approach helps you to spend less time on the application process. No documents or printing necessary. Furthermore, you will receive an email once your application has been reviewed and most of our employers provide feedback to you.
Formulating cover letters and CV’s is a challenging task. That’s why we solve this issue with a digital career profile (see afringa Academy below) , which replaces your CV, and a “Cover Video” which replaces your cover letter. The afringa job application process is completely online and free for you (only the employer pays). We get rid of hard copies and the resulting printing and mailing costs. All you need to apply is a Internet connection and a smart phone.
Africa has a big informal employment market and it is not easy to identify which of your former employers would be a good reference. On afringa you do not have this problem with our video-based application process. You can show your personality, attitude towards the job, and you can answer questions of the employer. As a result, you do not need to rely on references. In summary that makes the whole process fairer compared to others.
Many companies across Africa are using complex job application processes. This makes it hard for you to submit a proper application. On afringa we have a simple platform where applying for a job will only take a few minutes without unnecessary and confusing paperwork or documents.
Another problem job seekers face is the fact that they lack sufficient professional experience. We believe that your individual attitude and personality will make up for your lack of professional experience. That’s why we implemented “Problem-Solving-Videos” to give you a chance to show your creativity, logical thinking and language skills.
Often companies demand hard copies of your application documents or expect that you travel to interviews. The afringa approach aims to reduce these costs to a very minimum (no money must be spent on printing). Due to our video-based recruiting, the predefined selection is better and results in lower unnecessary travel costs.
Jobs in Gambia
There is a wide field of job opportunities in all over Gambia. You have the most populated areas like Serekunda, Bakau or Brikana but also rural areas where you can find your dream job. It does not matter if you are looking for an entry-level job in Serekunda or for a senior-level job in Banjul. The possibility is high that you will find it on afringa. But afringa is not only offering jobs in Gambia, but also across the whole African continent and remote jobs. Remote jobs mean that you may work from your home office at a job in for example Nairobi, Kenya. Therefore, it is much easier for you to find the career you would really love.
The Gambian job market is highly competitive with relatively high unemployment rates which makes it crucial for jobseekers to leave a very good first impression on the future employer. Unlike other job platforms afringa is using video job application technology to overcome mismatches between employers and jobseekers, which leads to stable and secure jobs and will boost your salary in the long run.
This and more makes afringa the best job platform in Gambia and across other African countries.
