Afrilancing.com is an online platform built with the aim to be Africa’s largest outsourcing, crowd sourcing and freelancer’s marketplace. It is a dynamic online platform where businesses and independent professionals can connect and collaborate. It allows for employers to interview, hire, recruit, connect and work with freelancers from across Africa.

Founded by Onyekwere Godwin Augustine and Victor Umakhihe, the platform aims to be a virtual workspace of equal opportunities regardless of users’ sex, age, country, location, religion, ethnicity and background; thus giving  the opportunity to make money and achieve their career goals.

The website which is set to go live in a matter of weeks, “was born out of the need to join African leaders in combating unemployment and eradicating poverty, by rewarding talented individuals, improving dignity in labour and promoting skill acquisition,” the founders said.

“Afrilancing.com helps employers in all sectors understand that it is more cost effective to have an army of competent freelancers (who only get paid when work is done) in addition to regular staff. Efficiency is achieved when ideas are studied, researched, brainstormed, developed and created by a collection of Afrilancing minds,” they concluded.

Projections suggest that Afrilancing.com can help open and link over 20 million people to jobs and could serve as a bridge connecting entrepreneurs with the labour market in Africa online. Also, the website plans to enforce a level playing field for every job seeker by ensuring that employment opportunities will not rely on certificate or qualifications. Instead, skill set and abilities will be priority, as subscribers are expected to have internet connection. For employers, the site promises a trusted, reliable, and quality outsourcing system where they can get millions of the best talents across Africa conveniently.

The site will allow employers to post projects by location or skill then allow the buyers or freelancers to bid for them as well as showcase their portfolio. The site will allow freelancers such as graphic and web designers, software developers and engineers, application testers, network administrators, copywriters, market researchers, SEO experts, data analysts, social media marketers, translators, customer service agents, moderators, administrative assistants, accountants, lawyers and business consultants among others.
