Defining The Problem
We are eager to understand the level of difficulty
Water GEP (Graduate Employment Programme) is a presidential initiative and one of Africa’s biggest water and sanitation research programmes managed by the Water Research Commission (WRC).
Water GEP aims to place science or engineering degree graduates with host research institutions.
The programme was established to help unemployed graduates find suitable positions and to support ongoing research projects.
To connect graduates with their desired host institutions and vice versa, the WRC needed a system that could facilitate this connection.

Understanding The Need
You have zealous to make this easy.
The project was a pilot initiative by the WRC meant to monitor project progress.
The project’s goal was to digitise the recruitment process of the nation and provide opportunities to host institutions and unemployed graduates.
The Water GEP under WRC wanted a platform to connect graduates and host institutions with minimal effort and cost.
The platform was designed to simplify finding suitable projects and managing project contracts online.
Graduates could use the platform to report on project progress to their employer institutions periodically.
What Zealous Proposed ?
Research. Understood. Proposed.
A Digital Recruitment Platform
Based on the requirements of the client, our team of analysts and technology consultants proposed an online recruitment system for the Water GEP.
Minimalist and user-friendly flow
Considering various recruitment processes and contract monitoring protocols, our analysts suggested a navigation flow to make the process streamlined, simple and user-friendly.
Digital data management
The graduates needed to upload many documents and certifications to their host institutions both before and after the hiring. We suggested a centralized data management system.
Client was a government organization with specific requirements and to understand the project thoroughly, team conducted several meetings.
Document of scope
After understanding the business scenario, a detailed scope document was prepared where all the requirements and milestones were defined.
To help client envision their recruitment platform, various wireframes were provided to the client for review and approval.
Design & development
Based on the approved wireframe designs, a user-friendly online recruitment platform was designed and developed for the client.
Before deploying the application on client server, our team conducted QA testing and helped client with UAT.
The fight was tough but so fun to crack!
Being a government initiative and a pilot project, our team needed to invest significant effort to comprehend the client's requirements, process nuances, and specialized terminology. Additionally, recruitment involves diverse norms and documentation processes to find the right candidates for the institution.
Business analysts held numerous meetings with relevant authorities
Extensive research conducted on the entire recruitment process
Technology consultants utilised analysis findings to develop a personalized system
The system featured defined roles, processes, and verification protocols
System designed to handle both pre and post-recruitment documentation requirements

I was retained by a client as a Software and Cloud Architect to support internal and customer-facing products. The client had existing mobile apps of poor quality built by another provider.
