Recruiter contract

Welcome, and thankyou for your interest in joining our Alumni recruiter program! On this page you can download our contract that needs to be excuted prior to joining the program. In addition, you can find a number of FAQ’s about this program below. It will help you understand more about what is expected from you, what rewards and support you will get, and all those little things that are involved in a project like this. 

Where do I market and sell?

This is really up to you. But, our programs are primary geared towards undergraduate and postgraduate students. Thus marketing in areas where this market is located will be the most successful. Think of biology or media departments, think of clubs and groupings, areas where adventure, wildlife and media students congregate! 

How do I ensure that students chat to me?

It is a problem if students come and direct their questions directly to Africa Media. As such we have kept our materials supplied to you clear of our own contact details. We suggest that you fill in your personal details where possible to ensure that communication is with you

How much will I get paid?

We offer two options for payment. The first is that you get paid the amount of R4000 per student that you recruit. Alternatively, we can offer you a R5000 discount if you are planning on returning to participate on another program with Africa Media. *T’s&C’s Apply

What resources will I get?

Africa Media has built a number of resources for you that you can download from this section of the site. This includes powerpoint templates, posters, photographs, videos and much more. We have tried our most to ensure that materials are free of our contact details, thus ensuring that students who you are contacting will stay communicating with you. Please feel free to augment these resources with your own personal resources collected during your time with us! Go crazy!

What is the whole recruitment process?

Step 1. MARKET

Get the word about our programs to your personal networks, departments and community. Use the resources we supply and your personal media content to generate interest in the programs of Africa Media.

Step 2. GUIDE STUDENTS

Students will then begin contacting and talking to you about these programs. Tell them the truth, answer their questions, and lend authentic information about your personal experience with Africa Media.

Step 3. FACILITATE BOOKINGS

When students are ready to book, simply direct them to the Africa Media website to submit a booking form. Remind them just to identify you as the ALUMNI RECRUITER on the booking form.

Step 4. KEEP CONTACT

After booking the student may still need guidance and assistance. Keep in contact, aid with how to best pay the deposit, and help answer the numerous questions a student will have before jetting off to South Africa.  

Step 5. FOLLOW THROUGH WITH AFRICA MEDIA

Quickly send us a note about any new bookings you have facilitated. This allows us to cross reference with our records and ensures that we keep on the same page about your recruitment success. 

When does it count as a booking?

Your job finishes only when a student has paid their non-refundable deposit to Africa Media. So it is vital that you stay in contact with the students even after booking to ensure that they follow through and make payment of the deposit. 

How do you know I 'recruited' a student?

For a student to apply, they are required to submit an application form. On this form they are asked if they were referred by one of our alumni, and if so, then who. If they fill in this and identify you, then you will receive credit. If this step is missed, then you are welcome to contact us with a students name who you believe that you recruited. We will investigate immediately and if the student agrees they were referred to a program by you, then we will credit you accordingly.
