Giraffe, the fully-automated, low-cost recruitment startup has been identified as one of the top startups in South Africa to watch in 2017 by Ventureburn.
Giraffe enables businesses to recruit medium-skilled workers such as cashiers, retail shop assistants, call centre agents and drivers- 10x faster and 10x cheaper than any other recruitment service.
Recruitment is a major pain point for large corporates and small businesses alike, with candidate sourcing, screening and interviewing consuming vast amounts of resources, admin time and in many cases recruitment agency fees.
Giraffe addresses these problems by using an algorithm and mobile web app to automatically source, screen, contact and schedule interviews with candidates. Employers simply submit a staff request online at www.giraffe.co.za and Giraffe can send candidates for interview in as little as 48 hours.
Since launching their low-cost recruitment service in March 2015, Giraffe has expanded their recruitment service in Cape Town and Durban, has attracted over 250 thousand candidates nationwide and has helped major businesses such as Merchants, Pizza Hut and Uber recruit staff.
In 2016 Giraffe raised a round of investment led by eBay founder and Silicon Valley tech billionaire Pierre Omidyar’s VC fund. Giraffe also won the Seedstars World award for Best Global Startup 2016, representing South Africa and beating over 3,000 other startups from 60 emerging markets.
