Hiring trends across Africa for 2019

We expect employers in developing countries across Africa to maintain a sense of measured confidence. Talent acquisition and skills development, as well as the basic building blocks of infrastructure development, will continue to be at the forefront of hiring activity across the continent.

Business and hiring activity will focus on East and West Africa with countries such as Kenya, Mauritius, Ghana, Nigeria and Ivory Coast driving industrialisation and sustainable projects in power, water, transport and communication.

Demand for specialist skills within operations, finance, sales, engineering and technology will continue to support growth.

With Africa’s recruitment growth curve moving in an upward direction, we expect to see international companies investing capital which will result in the implementation of essential mitigation strategies.

Companies will continue to hire local talent, leading to a growing demand for skilled nationals with international experience. This is likely to result in a significant skills gap as companies compete for the same candidates.

In order to combat this, employers will need to take an open-minded approach to source professionals with transferable skills and the potential to expand their skill set.

The effects of this will vary but hiring managers are advised to proactively drive recruitment processes in order to secure top talent.
