New platform launches to help SA creatives find jobs!
Creative Careers South Africa has just announced the launch of their new online jobs portal that assists creative professionals in finding employment within arts, entertainment and other creative industries in South Africa.
Creative Careers launched on Friday and is described as a digital one-stop solution, designed to connect job seekers and employers through a comprehensive and interactive platform that moves the entire hiring process online.
The cutting-edge recruitment platform was developed due to the limitations on creative opportunities within the arts’ ecosystem in South Africa. The platform’s objective is to serve the creative job market by providing a space where access to jobs is made available, and to ensure that job seekers know where to look for work.
The easy-to-use system allows creatives to sign up and complete a virtual resume which will include their educational background, professional experience, creative portfolio, salary expectations and contact information. These personal profiles will be added to the Creative Careers database which will be available to recruiters and potential employers who are looking to hire creative talent.
Users can also enjoy the option of uploading their head shots, show reels and CV’s which will help strengthen their candidacy for prospective positions.
Creative Careers South Africa is targeted at actors, writers, models, editors, filmmakers, directors, voice artists, dancers, make-up artists, advertisers, social media experts, graphic designers and other creative freelancers. The website allows users to browse vacancies and make direct applications in just a few simple clicks. Once an application is made, employers are notified and are able to track, shortlist and hire candidates through the system- making the employment process convenient and efficient.
Companies can also sign up with an employer’s account where they can add their business branding, place job adverts, manage applications and browse candidate CV’s.
“Artists in South Africa face a daily struggle when it comes to finding suitable jobs in the entertainment industry. Due to the nature of our work, opportunities are often shared by word of mouth and as a result, many people miss out if they are not connected or know the right people. Even popular job websites seem to be lacking when it comes to creative work. The idea of a platform, specifically for creatives seems like just the kind of thing that is needed to help empower the creative community in South Africa”, said Cape Town based actress and singer Zikhona Ndaba.
Creative Careers South Africa is the perfect tool for creative professionals who are looking for work, who want to connect with other creatives and stay updated on industry related news.
