Careers24 registers 3 million job candidates in South Africa


Careers24, one of South Africa’s leading online recruitment sites, reached the milestone of 3 million registered candidates on 5 February 2018. 

“This is a massive milestone for us and an honour to be trusted by so many people who are on their job search journey. I believe a big part of our success is the platform’s user-friendly interface and its ability to match candidates with the right job,” said Marc Privett, Careers24 Head of Product and Customer Insights. 

It is not only new job seekers who are relying on the online career portal to find job opportunities. According to Privett, an analysis of user statistics for 2017 has shown that the number of employed candidates seeking better opportunities grew faster than the number of unemployed candidates actively looking for work.

“There is huge opportunity for companies to not only find suitable candidates among such a big group of registered job seekers, but also to put their business on the radar of top talent by showcasing the benefits of what they offer and their corporate culture,” said Privett.

“Successful people who are satisfied with their current positions are using the site to keep up with what is happening and available in the marketplace.”

Last year more than two thirds of all new candidates who registered on Careers24 did so on a mobile device.

Privett said this trend is expected to continue in 2018, with mobile traffic already making up a significant portion of all traffic as smartphone penetration continues to rise, offering access to a broader range of candidates.
