Datum Recruitment Services (DRS) and the Global Business School Network (GBSN) are partnering to help advance job opportunity and employment in Africa. With a shared goal of advancing management education in order to strengthen the management talent pool, GBSN and DRS will work together to foster connections and share knowledge between the business education and corporate sectors.
With the new regulation to curb unemployment in Kenya, work permits will only be granted to foreigners above the age of 35 years with an annual income of $24,000. This regulation has opened opportunities to local youngsters to fill in the gaps, with local business school graduates as primary candidates.
The partnership between DRS and GBSN willhelp advance management education in Africa to fill the current skills gaps and serve to enhance employers’ perceptions about the graduates from the local b-schoolsin Africa. This in turn will make the African labor market capable of meeting thetalent demands of companies in Africa.
“With its’ 30 years of experience in recruiting for African jobs, Datum Recruitment Services is pleased to use its unique blend of executive search experience and industry expertise to help both companies and new graduates to build and develop careers in Africa,” said Nikunj Shah of DRS. “GBSN’s network of leading business schools is a great resource for us to help schools and students prepare for the African job market.”
“We are pleased to be working with Datum to increase our network’s visibility in Africa’s corporate sector, which is the ultimate destination for many of the graduates of the business schools our organization works to develop,” said Guy Pfeffermann, CEO of GBSN. “They will be a valuable partner in connecting our network with the business sector to help determine and address their management talent needs.”
