Mara Jobs is looking for the best and brightest talent across Africa – to help them land their first job, get ahead in their career, or even change career direction. We are also targeting the African diaspora who have left the continent for education or work, and are now considering returning home.

We will skills-match that talent with local and international employers who are starting out or expanding their workforce on the continent.

Job-seekers wishing to sign up to the service will be charged a one-off fee for a year’s subscription. This fee ranges from $6 - $20, depending on the level of membership.
