In a bid to help businesses in East Africa hire top talent efficiently, ROAM Jobs, the Jobs arm of Ringier One Africa Media, has announced the relaunch of BrighterMonday Uganda.
Centered on supporting growing businesses to recruit the right way, the online jobs platform will leverage technology and expertise to connect the right talent to the right opportunities, enabling organizations to enjoy an efficient and reliable recruitment process.
The online jobs platform was established in 2015, quickly establishing itself as the best job site in Uganda. In 2016, BrighterMonday Uganda’s parent company, One Africa Media was acquired by Ringier AG to form the Ringier One Africa Media (ROAM) Group, halting the business briefly before it picked up this year.
According to ROAM Jobs Managing Director Hilda Kabushenga Kragha, the business is proud to reestablish BrighterMonday Uganda and help SMEs in the region hire the right way.
“In response to the demand for quality recruitment and job placement services in Uganda, we have relaunched BrighterMonday Uganda to provide our expertise and advanced technologies at affordable costs to businesses looking to hire qualified candidates. As leaders in the industry, we have also enhanced the job application flow on the website to ensure jobseekers apply for the right roles and get noticed by recruiters.” Hilda said.
She added that Small & Medium Enterprises contribute about 20% of Uganda’s GDP and employ over 2.5 million people in Uganda and as such they require relevant solutions in onboarding the right talent.
Bold, better and brighter at BrighterMonday Uganda
To ensure growth and sustainability for the relaunched business, ROAM recently appointed Brian Ntambirweki as Chief Executive at BrighterMonday Uganda; he previously served as Marketing Manager at the firm in 2015. The skilled strategist and seasoned leader has since his appointment built a strong team of 12 experts focused on delivering exceptional value to employers and jobseekers.
Commenting on his new role as CEO, Brian Ntambirweki said “I’m excited to re-join the BrighterMonday Uganda team that thrives on passion, innovation and excellence. BrighterMonday has gone a long way in its aim to digitize Human Resources and Transform Productivity in Uganda – through superior technology, operational excellence and impeccable customer care. I’m passionate about improving business efficiency, as well as improving people’s livelihoods. I believe that BrighterMonday provides an intersection for my passions and I’m looking forward to steering the company to greater heights and positioning BrighterMonday as the recruitment partner of choice in Uganda.” He said.
The jobs platform has kicked off business with a revised pricing strategy on products to help and support customers hire the right way. Moreover, BrighterMonday Uganda has introduced the revamped Best Match solution, an automated candidate matching system that helps employers get 10 “qualified” and “ranked” candidates in just 10 days.
