Telecom – Major employer in Africa

The IT revolution is big in Africa – with major players like MTN, GLobacom, Airtel and Safaricom competing for a share of the market, foreign direct investment coming in and many ICT professionals looking for vacancies in Africa. Resource dependent Africa is earning revenue for economic growth from the telecom boom in the continent.

 

Mobile telephony has brought new possibilities to the continent- bridging the urban-rural divide, helping people connect, access to information, markets, and services. Youth can easily register on job services via their phones, get job alerts, career tips and find jobs in Africa.  

 

Less than a quarter of Africans have a bank account. Unlike the rest of the world, the mobile phone has effectively leapfrogged the landline in Africa. Mobile financial applications (known as “m-money” or “m-banking”) involve a set of applications that facilitate a variety of financial transactions via mobile phone, including transmitting airtime, paying bills, and transferring money between persons.

The Key to Africa’s future economic growth and to attract foreign direct investment in all sectors will increasingly depend on quantity and quality of the continent’s infrastructure. A surge of wireless communication and mobile commerce will accelerate business opportunity, create jobs in Africa and attract the best of global talent to a lucrative career in Africa.

 

There is progress. African governments and private sources combined are investing about $21bn (£13bn) in telecom-related infrastructure accounts. Fibre – optic submarine cables  are helping to bring more African communities into the age of high-speed internet, making e-commerce, cloud, real-time video and IP-based voice a reliable reality, allowing African companies to conduct business more competitively on the global stage and creating jobs in Africa.  Africa recruitment Agencies will be on the lookout for the best talent to fill the ICT vacancies in Africa.
