Jobs in Kenya – How localization is taking over

 

 

Kenya’s national long-term development blueprint is aiming to transform Kenya into an industrializing, middle-income country providing a high quality of life to all its citizens by 2030. There are on-going construction and plans for public SEZs in Athi River, Naivasha, Nairobi, Mombasa, Kisumu and Lamu.

 

2018 is expected to produce numerous opportunities for job seekers and professionals. Finding a good opportunity is more competitive than ever. Trends like localization, employers being cost conscious, having specific job descriptions are changing the employment landscape, and impacting what skills and experience are most in demand.

 

Companies in Kenya are localizing. With the Paradigm shift in education levels, most of the multinationals and regional players want to hire more local talent to boost the economic level of the country. Going a step further, big multinationals are opening their doors to local talent from Kenya for their worldwide business.

 

We are hiring locals for Production, Finance & Accounts, Mechanical, and Marketing and Sales roles with a leading building material group, and also for plastics and chemical industries.   Interactions with local candidates is always a good experience as they are easily available, are very clear about their career goals, are easy to communicate with, time-bound and reply promptly to our queries. They are very humble, cooperative and of helping nature as they grow themselves as well others by giving reference of other suitable candidates.

 

There is good potential for recruitment in fields like Construction, Telecom, Insurance, Building Materials, and Hospitality etc. in the endeavor to redevelop the country in terms of economic strength and a better lifestyle.

 

We are currently working with Industries like Manufacturing (Steel. Building Materials, Plastics, Sugar etc.), Construction and Telecom. Recently we recruited, middle-level executives for production, Maintenance, IT, Marketing, Security, Accounts & Finance. Some C Level roles are also on the verge of finalization.

Datum Recruitment Services is hiring for Senior Management positions

 

 

A committed senior management and board are not just essential for the daily running of a business, the formulation of achievable goals and a good strategy, but it is also necessary for high engagement, commitment, and trust. The foundations of a successful company start at the top.

 

It is no easy task to hire highly talented people with the expertise and personal qualities that align with your company’s trajectory and values.

 

Finding great senior-level talent is both critically important and formidable, particularly for fast-growth companies. Bringing on new senior leadership at the right time can be a huge boon for the company’s growth (and for your own career) while hiring mistakes at the executive level can be devastating.

 

Our understanding of the role of senior management in employee engagement helps our International Executive Search team to identify and select qualified C-level executives and senior management professionals for India, Africa, Middle East and emerging markets.

 

We have successfully closed senior level searches for CEOs, CFOs, COOs and Business Heads for various roles across diverse sectors.
