“Since 2006, BrighterMonday has built digital solutions that have accelerated the recruitment space in Kenya, resulting in a more seamless hiring process and improving the quality of candidates businesses recruit. With the support of stakeholders, we have helped over 40,000 employers access the right candidates, in an efficient and reliable way. Moreover, we have over 1.2 million professionals in our database with over 5,000 people getting jobs through the platform on an annual basi,” Mutuma said.
To further augment the digital labour market in Kenya, BrighterMonday conducts research on the employment sector to enable businesses to make informed hiring decisions and help jobseekers identify trending skills to better position themselves for employment.
“We collaborate with partners through our business intelligence team to conduct relevant research in the market and inform the public on specifics that can inform business decisions and professional development. For instance, when COVID-19 hit the country, disrupting businesses and employment, we developed a report on the impact of the pandemic on the job sector, providing insights on what steps those affected can take to survive,” Mutuma added.
Ellina Kabiru, Head of Human Resources at Betika, a company that has benefitted from a partnership with the job firm’s executive search team, lauded BrighterMonday for the commitment to help employers hire right. “As a recruiter, BrighterMonday has been able to find us the right talent for positions within short timelines as they are able to source, identify and match the right talent to fit our needs. This has greatly impacted our recruitment success and we congratulate them on 15 years in Kenya,” Ellina said.
As part of the Ringier One Africa Media Group (ROAM), one of Africa’s largest digital publishers, BrighterMonday envisions a more digital focused job market driven by the increased need for agility in HR and business, as well as continuous upskilling for job seekers to enable them to land their dream opportunities.
