She will be replacing Kwaku Agbesi, who will be focusing on his role as CEO of Jobberman Ghana. Until her appointment, Kragha was the CEO of Jobberman Nigeria. She will also join ROAM’s executive council, making her the fourth woman on the seven-person team.

“Hilda’s passion and concise vision made her the ideal person for the role and a fantastic addition to the ExCo team. She brings a wealth of experience and capability to the role, and I am looking forward to seeing her drive the ROAM Africa Jobs brand forward,” Clemens Weitz, CEO of ROAM Africa Jobs, said.

Hilda joined Jobberman Nigeria as CEO in June 2019, bringing a wealth of consulting and human capital development experience to the role. Under her leadership, Jobberman Nigeria has strengthened its position as Nigeria’s largest jobs platform, with over 2 million job seekers and 68,000 employers.

Kragha said on her new role, "ROAM Africa Job brands have long been industry leaders in their markets; harnessing the power of technology to increase workplace productivity by supporting employers to place the right person in the right role and I feel privileged to be leading the BrighterMonday and Jobberman brands to the next level. With Africa’s growing youth population and all the other employment-related challenges the continent is facing, ROAM Africa Jobs is well-positioned to bring transparency to Africa’s labour markets all while connecting Africans to work opportunities that will improve their livelihoods.”

Hilda’s main focus will remain in Nigeria until the end of the year, whilst recruiting a successor in Nigeria, starting from January 2021.
