There are hundreds of job site on the internet. Some are legit, and others are but a waste of time. To filter through the mess, I have compiled a small list of legit websites to find jobs in Kenya.
List of websites to find jobs in Kenya.
Here is the list of legit websites to find jobs.
- Google.com aka Google search engine
- Facebook groups and pages
As you know, most of us have to hunt money for a living, unlike the government which collects it. Searching for a job in Kenya usually ends up being a job itself. Especially if you don’t know what you’re looking for.
The above sites are written in no particular order. Let’s take a peek at each.
This is the ultimate job search website. Google search engine will analyses and index for you the top sites according to the keyword provided.
To use this site effectively, you must familiarise yourself with Google keywords. A keyword is the most searched term on the internet. It is used to get more specific results, thus saving you time to surf the web.
Linkedin is an employment-oriented site. Its primary focus is for professional networking which involves employers posting jobs and potential job seekers posting their CVs.
It is also used by people looking to advance their careers or waiting for a particular opening. You can use this site to your advantage by merely looking at startups companies seeking to recruit new staff.
Linkedin has a job search section that allows you to search for jobs within a given location. The best part about LinkedIn is that your profile is your CV. So, when you’re using LinkedIn to find jobs focus more on building your profile to make it impressive.
Linkedin job search is based on your interests and career profile.
Facebook groups and pages.
Facebook is an excellent site for social and professional networking. I know of a few groups which tutor and mentor individuals are looking for openings in online jobs in Kenya.
Numerous Facebook pages are purporting to connect employers with employees, but most of them are usually a scam. However, you can use Facebook to your advantage to look for blue-collar jobs such as house help jobs, laundry, barber, etc. etc.
Some Employers also prefer posting jobs such as product activation and promotion on Facebook. But this usually requires you to spent countless of hours on Facebook filtering comments.

Brighter Monday is the most trusted and reliable website to find jobs in Kenya. This site is more comfortable to navigate as you can search for a job according to your profession, industry, and location.

Brighter Monday requires you to create an account and upload your CV to march you with the right employer.
Kenyamoja is a jerk of all trades; most of their job postings are usually from other websites. I only use it only for the links which lead to legit sites.
Fuzu and Summit recruitment
This two sites came into our categories for one reason? They poet jobs too! These sites are usually professional HR firms. They outsource labour for their clients. They recruit, train, hire and fire individuals on behalf of the company which they represent.
You may have noticed companies like Naivas don’t employ their staff; instead, they outsource from such firms. Our list is endless, if you feel we have left out a website, kindly let us know, and we’ll update it on our post.
