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.

  • 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.

Digital Recruitment Platform

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.

Additionally, recruitment involves diverse norms and documentation processes to find the right candidates for the institution.
