“The secret to our success is we’ve always gone to exceptional lengths to hire the best people.” Steve Jobs

ooba is committed to a proactive recruitment strategy, especially for scarce skills in South Africa.

What this means in practice is that we’re keen to find and engage with talented people in the local labour market, whether they’re actively seeking employment or keeping an eye out for future opportunities.

In order to do this, we continually keep open our scarce skill job ads – in order to attract people with suitable qualifications and experience, as well as give them somewhere to register with us (even if there isn’t an active vacancy at the time; rather than ‘turn them away’).

Anyone who has registered with us in advance of a specific active vacancy (and meets the relevant candidate criteria) will be among the first people we contact about the new job opportunity when it opens (as well as for us to check with them that they’re still interested in and available to apply).

The intention is this reduces our timelines in finding the best people for the job and that this service adds value to you by ensuring you don’t have to watch out all the time for a new vacancy at ooba, because we’ll contact you.

In this way, we are developing a talent community that we invite you to be a part of, because as Steve Jobs said “great things in business are never done by one person. They’re done by a team of people!

Thank you for taking the time to apply to ooba and for your interest in an ooba career!
