South African Recruitment Startup JOBJACK Secures Funding to Transform Entry-Level Employment Landscape
The investment will fuel the company’s expansion plans and enhance its ability to connect job seekers with life-changing employment opportunities.
Founded in 2018 by Christiaan van den Berg and Heine Bellingan, JOBJACK is a free-to-use web-based platform that empowers job seekers seeking entry-level positions.
The platform guides users through a seamless CV creation process, enabling them to apply directly from their mobile phones.
Notably, JOBJACK is data-free for MTN and Vodacom network users, further removing barriers for job seekers.
With nearly two million registered job seekers and a daily growth rate of 2,000, JOBJACK has established a strong presence in the South African recruitment landscape.
The newly secured funding will fuel the company’s operational expansion and network growth, allowing it to connect even more job seekers with promising career opportunities.
NEXT176 led the funding round, with participation from the Michael & Susan Dell Foundation.
This investment signals a strong belief in JOBJACK’s potential to transform the entry-level recruitment landscape and empower South Africa’s youth.
Ona Meyer, programme manager for youth employment at the Michael & Susan Dell Foundation, emphasized the organization’s commitment to supporting companies that provide innovative solutions to address the unemployment challenge faced by many South Africans.
The foundation’s investment in JOBJACK aligns with its mission to empower individuals and families through access to meaningful employment opportunities.
With its fresh injection of capital, JOBJACK is poised to make a significant impact on the South African recruitment landscape, particularly in the entry-level segment.
