Careers.sl is Sierra Leone’s premier employment exchange depot designed to connect organizations and job seekers using a unique algorithm matching skillsets.
Through Careers.sl, we are helping make labor markets more inclusive, innovative, flexible, and transparent. Using technological paradigms like the Internet, WAP, and SMS, Careers.sl lower the search cost and barrier to information for both job-seekers and employers, providing basic labor market information to them and a centralized meeting point wherein the two groups can interact.
Careers.sl engages a community of over 10,000 stakeholders through year round activities such as job fairs, mentoring programmes, capacity building workshops, and networking opportunities.
Sierra Leone is increasingly an active part of the African digital renaissance. At iDT Labs, we connect our local staff with the human capital in Nairobi to assist with our R&D projects for clients like Africell, one of the biggest mobile operators in country. In markets like Kenya, Uganda, and Ghana this digital revolution is promulgated by hubs that serve as infrastructure to support tech, entrepreneurship and innovation. The hubs provide the key tipping point because there are so many gaps in the enabling environment to be filled, or to be filled better, cheaper, or more easily.
Code-4-Salone is born out of the belief that if we can provide the value-proposition hubs offer customized to the country’s needs, we can fast-track the infrastructure needed to support this type of entrepreneurial tech activity taking birth in our country. We want to unlock the wealth tied up by policies and behavior that distort the economy through the potential of technology and innovation.
Code-4-Salone’s business model will allow the community to source, adapt, or develop new technologies to becoming real products for our market. The key to our effectiveness is open innovation — the process of combining internal and external ideas and people to advance the development and application of new technologies.
