Fuzu Limited last week launched “Fuzu” a one stop career development service. The service allows job seekers irrespective of their level of education and seniority, to dream and plan for their future, to learn new skills and competencies and ultimately find a job that best matches their profile. For employers Fuzu provides a set of sophisticated tools that enable identifying of best matching candidates through powerful search and recruitment solutions and automated analysis of CV’s. The platform integrates online psychometric testing and talent profiling of candidates to the application process making it easy to find candidates that best match with the requirements.
Research carried out by Fuzu indicated that job-seekers and employers were not satisfied with the current solutions. Hence there was a need for new innovative solutions that focused on the job seeker, who they are, where their potential lies and how best their talent can be matched with the employment opportunities.
Fuzu has partnered with the global consulting firm Accenture, which will provide more than 50 free high quality courses to learners who want to develop their skills and competencies. Also in order to maximize the impact of Fuzu and to scale up the service rapidly, they have partnered with The Rockefeller Foundation’s Digital Jobs Africa initiative.
The Fuzu platform is mobile friendly and can be accessed with all devices, from low-end handsets to smartphones, tablets and PC’s via an internet browser. It allows users to learn about different career options and also gives access to more than 100 courses in various competence areas from basic work skills to topics such as entrepreneurship among others.
