Our Mission -

To Develop and Integrate Africa's Junior

Talents Into The Workforce..

Digital Talent Accelerator for Africa's top junior talents.

Africa’s Recruitment Paradox.

The Problem -
Despite the existence of almost 2.5 million entry-level job vacancies that go unfilled each year, the African Development Bank reports that 2 out of every 3 African graduates remain steadily unemployed following graduation. This recruitment paradox is evident in labour markets throughout Africa and reflects the continent’s ever-increasing “skills gap”—or, the rift that exists between the skills acquired in the university by graduates and those actually sought out by employers in the job market. Meanwhile, business leaders across Africa indicate challenges in identifying timely and cost-effective tools to navigate local talent pools in countries of operation.

The Solution -
Slatecube is an online service that leverages smart adaptive algorithms to train and intelligently integrate entry-level talents into the workforce. Slatecube employs smart technology to bridge Africa’s skills gap. We support businesses in re-engineering their recruitment processes and provide them access to our robust entry-level talent pool. Our solution not only enables companies to connect with top talents, but it also aims to positively impact youth employment outcomes throughout Africa.

Here’s how we do it:
