Using FindaJobinAfrica ensures that we reach a much wider population of job seekers than some of our traditional recruitment advertising channels. We've seen a significant number of applications for roles which can be attributed directly to the advertisements we have placed online. - Dave Benson, Recruitment Manager, Oxfam GB AFRICA
