NAIROBI, Kenya, May 23- Centum Investment Limited has introduced a new job app in the Kenyan market that will provide the youth with a direct link to the employer or any individual looking for a service from an expert.

Dubbed Ajiry, is designed to provide a platform for workers and employers to connect and network effortlessly where there is no control from third-party clients.

Speaking during the launch of Ajiry, Centum Director Chris Kirubi said the application will source for contractual, short-term, casual or one-off jobs to employers.

“Once an individual has downloaded this application, workers will cast a wide net in their search for job opportunities and in turn further formalize the informal industry,” said Kirubi.

The launch of the application comes when the rate of unemployment amongst the youth continues to rise and has left a number hopeless, of ever succeeding to join the employment industry.

Kirubi encouraged the youth to take advantage of the Ajiry application that will provide vast opportunities and help bridge the unemployment gap.

“Employment opportunities for the youth are endless via the new Progressive Web Application,” he said.

“We need to train our children to be practical and how to use their skills and talent. For the first time, the government and other institutions are catching up. It is not all about passing exams, it’s about the skills and talents they have,” he added.

Executive Director Centum Investment Limited James Mworia also added that the youth should not necessarily focus on the monetary impact but concentrate to gain experience which will eventually lead them to become billionaires.

“I will urge the young people not to mind the dues they receive while starting off on a job but should focus more on sharpening their skills which will, in turn, make them be billionaires,” he said during a panel discussion.

Ajiry has been built around a Progressive Web App model which allows users to use less personal phone/Wi-Fi data bundles and less storage on their devices.

This means one does not need to download it as an application and can be searched on the web at no cost.

However different companies seeking employees will be charged Sh400 by Centum Investment Limited that will help prevent cases of fraud from occurring.
