International Recruitment Services



















1. Employer intake


The first thing we do it to get to know you and your company or organisation. We take the time to either visit your company or organise a meeting on Skype to map your needs. What kind of branch are you active in, area, what is the company culture, what are the vacancy specifications, must haves, nice to haves, etc. We can help design your job description or advice on the package for the particular candidate.


2. Agreement


After the employers intake it is up to you if you want to work with JobnetAfrica for your coming recruit. We never ask for exclusiveness as it is our job to deliver the best candidate, independent of other recruiters or your own network. We just find you the best international employees in Africa!


3. Recruit and Head Hunt


Time to start the search. We have several tools to explore the candidate market.


Our database

Our database filled with thousands of international candidates interested to work and live in Africa is used to contact the right people. With great new features built in our system we can make the right match easily using standard and variable search criteria.  

Job Advertisement

We post your vacancy on our JobnetAfrica website anonymously and promote the job through social media like Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and our vacancy newsletter. The incoming applicants are selected as part of the shortlist.

Head Hunt; find international employees in Africa

Searching on LinkedIn usually gets great results. We comb through the African market scrolling for the right matches. Our huge network on LinkedIn really helps. Also we use our network to head hunt the best professionals through word of mouth. We recruit people that were not even aware they were interested in a job in Africa. We track down the best international employees for your business in Africa.


4. Interviews


Once we have determined the shortlisted candidates we make an interview plan. All candidates are interviewed personally at our office in the Netherlands or through Skype. We use proven interviewing techniques in order to get the best results. Every interview takes at least 45-60 minutes. We do not only check if the candidate matches professionally, also the practical situation like family, availability and required package are checked.


5. Proposal


When we find a good candidate we propose him or her. We produce a report of the interview. Together with the CV we send it to you. It is then up to you whether you are interested to have an interview with the candidate yourself. We can take over all communication and planning in order to save you more time. Interview planning is our second nature!


6. Additional services


Besides our regular recruitment procedure we offer additional services to come to the right candidate choice. Through customer specified tests, training or assessments we can thoroughly check the applicant in order to make a match up to your expectations. Please contact us for a tailor made solution.

The process after your first interview is determined by yourself. Second, third interviews, flying candidates in to come and feel the company, negotiations. We are there to help from the side-line and love being involved organising. All in order to secure you to find employees in Africa, the best international candidates around!

Once you contracted the new hire we stay in touch until the person arrives at your doorstep for his or her first working day. Even long after we keep following both candidate and yourself.
