As an indication of optimism in the market,

leading companies like Ecobank, Halliburton,

and Total will be congregating in London

to secure talented professionals for

their operations across Africa

at the Careers in Africa Recruitment

Summit from 30 October to 1 November.

This will be the second edition of the Summit

this year following a very successful

Officer at National Microfinance Bank

of Tanzania says "This event continues to be

a source of high caliber talent

from diverse backgrounds."

Careers in Africa

With more than 10,000 initial applications from

candidates the Summit continues to be

the largest recruitment event

for Africa worldwide. Companies such as Aggreko,

Bolloré, Etisalat, Lafarge, Millicom,

SAFAL Group, Skye Bank and Weatherford

are among those seeking to shore up

their workforces with experienced

professionals possessing international experience.

As the global economy shows signs of strain,

Africans working in the Diaspora are displaying

their inclination to go back home and develop

their careers in a region still experiencing growth.

Those who have returned offer

much encouragement.

Megandran Naidoo, a South African Banker is

one such professional. After spending several years

in London, he is now working for

Absa Africa in Johannesburg. "The opportunities

immense value to people like myself!"

Rupert Adcock, Managing Director at

Global Career Company (GCC) believes that

the renewed demand from companies

seeking to recruit internationally-oriented

African professionals is a sign

of the times. "GCC is utilized by leading

employers in Africa to tap into

the exceptional talent pool that

is resident overseas. Career opportunities are

steadily increasing across the region

as companies recruit ahead of the curve.

Africans are considering moving home

more than ever to further their careers

and contribute to their local economies".
