Jobboard Finder’s opinion
Summary: Founded by Jérémy Hodara and Sacha Poignonnec in 2012 in Nigeria, Jumia is a recognized African brand for online purchases, among other things. The official name of the group was Africa Internet Express (AIGX), but after a rebranding initiative in 2016, the subgroups all became Jumia something, and now the group is known as JumiaServices. The current headquarters are in Paris. EverJobs, created in 2015, and launched in Cameroon, is one of those subgroups, which became Jumia Jobs. Present in four African countries (Cameroon, the Ivory Coast, Senegal and Uganda), Jumia is the 6th most visited website in the Ivory Coast with 2.81 million views recorded every month (that doesn’t refer exclusively to the job section). In fact, there are sections for housing, car, shopping, market, flight, travel, food, deals (classifieds) and jobs. On Facebook, it has 139 386 followers and a blog (but which needs updating). The website is available in English in French. A success story? Definitely, but the job section could use some attention.
Design: All four homepages are the same: a backdrop image of a black man concentrating on a screen (as if looking for work) and a search engine (keywords and locations) over the image. There are featured companies just underneath (most of which are not hiring) and the rest of the homepage is comprised of lists to help jobseekers find jobs (search by category, by industry, by company, by city and the number of offers for each subcategory is in brackets). Unfortunately, there are a number of blanks in the “About Us” section (partners and supporting websites) and links to the blog articles/advice don’t always work. As for the job offers, the listing displays the location, the publication date, the location and (sometimes) the company name, but no logos. The filters include the location, the publication date, the company name, the industry, the type of contract, the salary and the job category. Like on a classifieds website, you can browse professional and “individual” job offers.
The job board objective: Jumia Jobs wants to improve the labour market in Africa and utilizes the Jumia brand to attract jobseeker and recruiter attention.
Recruiter observations: It’s easy for recruiters to create an account and to create the advert. Then, you send your request to the team, and they contact you (and approve the order) once they’ve reviewed the post. There is a CV database and the pricing information is on the website.
Jobseeker observations: As a jobseeker, an account is not required to apply to job offers. If you wish to create an account, all you need is Facebook, Linkedin or an e-mail address.
The job offers: Administration, other and marketing are the top categories on this particular job board. The homepage also includes a list of the most popular jobs (including administrative assistant and consultant). There are 47 professional offers and 2 547 personal offers (that are all in “other”).
Reactivity: The form doesn’t work, but contact information is available through the recruiter portal.
Special features: The views on the articles; the blog (no articles since last year, but there are a number of subsections and some information is still relevant); promoting other people’s job offers; popular searches.
Verdict: The rebranding within the JumiaServices was only carried out two years ago. Hopefully, some focus will be redirected to Jumia Jobs. Until then, the job board is handy, but it is in need of updates and some TLC (blog articles, working links, etc.)

Ivory Coast recruitment market status
Since 2012 the country has become one of the fastest growing economies in the world. Its primarily known as the worlds largest exporter of cocoa beans. The current economy is undergoing continuous growth and stability. Though Ivorians are dependant largely on the agricultural sector they are trying to slowly move out of agriculture jobs as non farm enterprise worker can earn 7 times more than an agricultural worker. Teaching English can be one of the industry that may offer a job in Ivory Coast. Foreign nationals interested in working here should have at least a working knowledge of French unless sent on a job assignment for a limited period. Expats may find it a challenge to find a profesional job in the country.
