Kenya’s recruitment site BrighterMonday has partnered Educartis- an online education platform with operations in Angola and Kenya to launch an online education and employment platform dubbed BrighterMonday Learning.
The new site will equip BrighterMonday’s growing population of over 600,000 registered job seekers in Kenya with information on higher and continuing education courses and education providers (local and international) as a value ad.
“We want to set quality standards in the industry, create transparency in the education and job markets and increase employability. By leveraging the power of the Internet in Kenya, we can help Kenyans keep up with change and build a better workforce and economy together and faster” said Emmanuel Mutuma, BrighterMonday CEO.
The platform has colleges, universities, institutes and other training centres where learners have 24/7 access to institution and student profiles and course information to help interested job seekers get career guidance and access to information on schools, courses and jobs.
Launched in Angola in 2016, after the success of Jobartis.com, Educartis currently has commercial teams in Angola & Kenya. Educartis supports a monthly login of 50,000+ learners in search of short courses, certifications, workshops, bachelors, diplomas, masters, executive education & more.
The Educartis portal has information on 22,000+ published programs and courses & 3,000+ profiles featuring verified & recognized local, national & international education providers. The BrighterMonday recruitment portal has over 600,000 candidates and gets over 7 million page views per month and over 1.2 million total monthly visits. These partnership is expected to help equip the job seekers to further their careers and develop their skills.
According to Educartis Chief Executive Officer Farah Mulji, “Kenya is one of the youngest and fastest growing economies in the Sub-Saharan region, with a rapidly growing population and expanding labour force. As a result, the demand for education is becoming increasingly important to improve careers and acquire better jobs,” said Mulji.
