What was the Problem?

Water GEP or Graduate Employment Programme is a presidential initiative and one of Africa’s biggest water and sanitation research programme. The programme is managed by Water Research Commission and the programme was established to place science or engineering degree graduate with host research institutions. To help these unemployed graduates in finding their right fit in their desired host institutions and vice versa, the WRC wanted a system that can connect the institutions with the graduates for their ongoing projects.

What was the Need?

This project was the WRC pilot project to digitize their recruitment process of the nation and provide optimum opportunities to the host institutions and unemployed graduates. To help both the parties in effectively finding the right project and govern the project contract online, WRC under the Water GEP wanted a platform where graduates and host institutions can find each other with minimal efforts and cost. The system was also needed to monitor the progress of the project and to help graduates report about the progress to their employer institutions periodically.

A Tough Fight

Business understanding gives you a competitive edge

Since the project was a government initiative and a pilot project, our business analysts and technology consultants had to spend a lot of time in understanding the requirements of the client, the nuances of the process and the jargons and terminology of the system. Along with that, there were many different norms and documentation processes involved in the recruitment process to enrol and find the perfect fit for the institution.

Since there were a lot of domain specific requirements to be considered, our business analysts conducted various meetings with the respective authorities and conducted thorough research of the entire recruitment process. Since there were both pre and post recruitment documentation requirement, our technology consultants used the research of the analysts to create a truly personalized system with define roles, process and verification protocols.
