BrighterMonday is Now Part of The African Talent Company

When it comes to securing a job, we are passionate about creating opportunities that will translate into a livelihood for our jobseekers. As such, while operating under ROAM Africa, we made a commitment to empowering individuals to make the best decisions at crucial stages in their life, starting with the major pillar around which they can achieve a strong sense of stability – securing a job.

Years on end, BrighterMonday Kenya and its sister brands, Jobberman Nigeria, Jobberman Ghana and BrighterMonday Uganda have worked endlessly to develop a sense of pride in our impact on the recruitment industry in Africa.

But as the saying goes, change is inevitable. Work-life has immensely changed over the years mainly due to the COVID 19 pandemic. This has fast-tracked digitisation which in turn made room for remote work, gig work BPO and other job types to become mainstream.

In Africa specifically, it also highlighted the great skills divide and the need to invest in training if young Africans are to effectively participate in this new, globally competitive workforce.

As pioneers and leaders in some of Africa’s labour markets, we recognise that we too have to evolve, if we are to effectively achieve our mission of bridging the skills gap in Africa and connecting African talent to amazing opportunities. So we have taken the bold step to expand our reach and impact as a brand by moving into this new era as THE AFRICAN TALENT COMPANY.

The African Talent Company will expand the mission of our powerful marketplaces – the BrighterMonday platforms in East Africa and the Jobberman platforms in West Africa. Our new mandate will see us move beyond the traditional marketplace and begin to holistically tackle the challenges we see in our labour markets.

For us, the future is digital, and we see that work has to be done to bring trust to online recruitment. In order to do this, we will develop a hybrid approach to recruitment that meets employers where they are in order to match them with the best talent.

We also see the great opportunity in BPO and outsourcing – Africa is the next global labour frontier and we want to be at the forefront of driving remote work and gig work on the continent, especially through BPO. 

On the seeker side, The African Talent Company will go beyond offering jobs and dig deeper into talent development through learning and upskilling, to ensure that young Africans are better equipped to participate in Labor markets with strong, relevant skills.

It is our belief that the talent gap in Africa can only be bridged if both sides of the labour market are addressed and even though this is a daunting task, we believe that we are up for it.

Our vision is bold…

We will be Africa’s solution to bridging the talent gap.

Our mission is important…

We develop and connect great African talent to work opportunities.

We are moving into a new era as The AFRICAN TALENT COMPANY
