Apart from being just a job board, they regularly monitor and publish labour demand/supply trends via its CareerJunction Index Executive Summary. Twice a year, they also compile a Salary Review exclusively for South African job seekers and the HR/Recruitment industry to give a true representation of cost-to-company salary packages in South Africa.

CareerJunction is the only job board in South Africa that recognises recruitment excellence as voted for by SA’s job seekers through their RecruitAwards initiative.

They are also passionate about nurturing new talent in the recruitment agency space and for increasing inclusivity. As part of their CSI initiatives, in association with APSO, CareerJunction started an incubator project where they partnered with two BEE female entrepreneurs that were starting out in the recruitment agency business. Both businesses now have access to CareerJunction and its online recruitment services. This includes equipment, laptops with internet access, office space at APSO’s HQ, as well as support & onsite training on using CareerJunction.
