Centum Investment company has in recent years helped to address the issue of youth unemployment through its jobtech app dubbed ‘Ajiry’ that connects job seekers with potential employers.
Launched in May 2021, the new job app has provided the youth with a direct link to the employer or any individual looking for a service from an expert. This application is designed to provide a platform for workers and employers to connect and network effortlessly where there is no control from third-party clients since it helps to source for contractual, short-term, casual or one-off jobs to employers.
“Once an individual has downloaded this application, workers will cast a wide net in their search for job opportunities and in turn further formalize the informal industry.”
The launching of the application ‘Ajiry’ came when the rate of unemployment amongst the youth continued to rise and left a number hopeless, of ever succeeding to join the employment industry.
Ajiry is built around a Progressive Web App model which allows users to use less personal phone/Wi-Fi data bundles and less storage on their devices. This means one does not need to download it as an application and can be searched on the web at no cost.
However different companies seeking employees will be charged Sh400 by Centum Investment Limited that will help prevent cases of fraud from occurring.
Centum is an investment channel providing investors with access to a portfolio of inaccessible, quality, diversified investments whose key objective is to consistently generate market beating returns by building extraordinary enterprises throughout Africa.
