Hiring trends in Africa in 2016

For 2016 we expect the current headwinds to remain and market conditions to be similar to 2015. Increased trade integration has had a positive influence on growth in Sub-Saharan Africa, which should in-turn foster job creation. Areas we expect to be most active will be FMCG, Infrastructure, Manufacturing, Logistics, Agriculture and Construction.

The number of middle-class households in some sub-Saharan African countries is likely to increase significantly in the coming years, supported by income growth — which will encourage more companies to invest in the region. As consumer activity increases, demand for sales and marketing professionals should increase in the Retail and FMCG sectors.

In 2016 new infrastructure projects across SSA will create demand for candidates with experience providing a value-added service to projects such as Project Accountants and Business Analysts. Internationally recognized certifications such as ACCA, CA (SA), CIMA and CPA continue to be highly valued.
