App To Help Job-Hunters

A group of techies in Sandton has developed a new app, called Giraffe, to help employers and job-seekers find each other.

Giraffe, which works on the simplest of cellphones, allows you to submit CVs and apply for jobs —  at no charge.

It recently won a prestigious award in Switzerland.

Giraffe founder Shafin Anwarsha says the ultimate aim is to reduce unemployment.

“What we found was that a large part of unemployment was caused because job-seekers didn’t have access or visibility to job opportunities and then you had employers who struggled to find good staff.”
