Fellow's Job Portal site featured


Bella Naija, a leading online site, has featured 2015 Tutu Fellow Deji Adewunmi and his two co-founders for their employment portal, called Jobberman.  The company has been listed at number eight by Forbes in tech start-ups in Africa.   Jobberman is Nigeria's largest job website and quite possibly the largest site of its kind in West Africa.  Deji, along with Opeyemi Awoyemi and Olalekan Olude, met at university as undergraduates and became friends, going on to launch the business together.  The site has more than two million job applicants and carries jobs from more than 40 thousand employers. 

A key reason for launching the site was to connect job seekers with employers.  Jobs materially change the lives of families and the three felt that a site such as this could impact millions of people in a positive way.  Deji says that he hopes they are able to grow the business until it is Africa-wide.
