Press Release

Whizzy Academy(Ghana) Partners with Africa trade desk (Canada) to offer Digital Jobs to African Youth.

Kumasi, Ghana, May 13, 2021 – Whizzy Academy in partnership with Africa Trade Desk are launching a Virtual Assistants job platform. The platform, eJobsAfrica, will provide the much-needed bridge between online business owners, coaches, consultants, and side hustlers that need help with Virtual Assistant (VA) services and the talented youth of Africa yearning to make a difference with their skills.

Virtual Assistants are trained to offer services such as social media management, web and graphic design, e-commerce setup, content writing, online course creation, virtual administration, data processing and management, bookkeeping, and customer support – all from a managed and secure location. VA’s may choose to work full-time or part-time.

The eJobsAfrica initiative is novel in the sense that it places strong emphasis on digital skills development and facilitation of meaningful mentoring relationships between Clients and Virtual Assistants.

It comes on the heels of a report titled Digital Skills in Sub-Saharan Africa – Spotlight on Ghana by the International Finance Corporation which, among other things, reveals that:

  • Presently, there is not enough people with current digital skills to meet the labor market demand.
  • 230 million jobs in Sub-Saharan Africa will require digital skills by 2030

Whiles the “eJobsAfrica concept” has been a decade-long dream, its fulfillment has happened within a surprisingly short period of time, thanks to the key partnership with Africa Trade Desk. In the words of Victor Hugo, “There is nothing like an idea whose time has come”.

“With the current spate of digital revolution and the increasing popularity of remote work amid a global pandemic, there is no better time to launch this platform”, said the co-founder, Samuel Aboagye.

Online marketers, course creators, consultants and small business owners 

interested in the development of Africa can jump on board as early adopters by signing up at www.ejobsafrica.com/letsmakeimpact.
