freerecruit - the best online refruitment platform
freerecruit – the best online refruitment platform


Established in 2013, is a free recruitment portal for companies to post jobs online for free and for job seekers to find jobs. At freerecruit, we are driven by the extremely high unemployment rate within South Africa. Our aim is to help curb this by bridging the gap between companies and job seekers. We found that too many websites display incorrect information or old/expired jobs with incorrect methods for application.

Our mission is to assist job seekers to find work and also to help small businesses find staff for free.

The recruitment service we offer is free, we do not charge candidates and neither do we charge companies/recruiters to post their jobs. Employers can post jobs online for free. This affords many small companies an opportunity that they wouldn’t otherwise have had.

Being able to offer this recruitment service for free create’s a positive impact on the unemployment rate we are facing. Not only does this change the lives of unemployed people and that of their families, but also the future of our country.

Although the site has been optimised for mobile use, we would recommend you use a PC for a better user experience.
