Malawi’s techpreneurs develop ‘Job Centre Africa’ App

Two innovative Lilongwe-based tech braniacs, Susan Kamkosi and Innocent Harinda, have developed ‘Job Centre Africa’, an application that makes it easy for job seekers in the country and beyond to find job markets.

Accessible on Google Play Store, one can presently get more than 6 000 job vacancies from employers in various sectors including arts, military, law, business, engineering and medicine, according to the app’s marketing manager Kamkosi.

“This is a recruitment portal for anyone looking for a job. It is the first ever job application in the world, and designed basically to benefit the people of Malawi,” said Kamkosi.

She added: “One can also find part time, full time or short and long term contracts plus internships using the app depending on one’s education level.”

And, Harinda said the application can be downloaded for free on android of smart phones.

“One needs to first download our Job Centre Africa app from the play store and then fill in their particulars that must be submitted to [email protected],” said Harinda.

According to him, a processing fee of K5 250 payable via Airtel Money or Mpamba is a requisite so that one can have full access to the application, and for security purposes.

“The fee is valid for a year, and once one does not get a job within eight months, they can get their money back,” said Harinda.

For those who might want Job Center to find them a job, engage Job Centre Africa to recruit staff on their behalf or have any other queries you can send them an email only to [email protected] Or visit and like our facebook page on

Good idea but maybe (just maybe) a bit pre-mature for the Mk5 250 processing fee which might deter potential users. It may sound like a ‘jobs-for-cash’ scheme. Perhaps investigate in-app purchases (paid adverts) to sustain the app?? I am not really sure how this works but it could be an alternative.

Or perhaps the potential Malawian companies offering these jobs should cover the costs?? Not sure again. Just a thought.

Keep it up though. We need techno brains like you.

FYI (I am a Malawian born software developer (13 years ++) based in South Africa)
