Most African countries even if they have large population have a small educated workforce in the power generation sector. There is high demand those skilled local workforce. Skills shortage is a term well known in most areas in Africa especially within the power generation, and transmission sector as there are many projects all over Africa seeking these candidates. Even if the workforce is available getting hold of them can be another challenge. What futher complicates recruitment in Africa is various issues like – location, communication, technology etc makes it very challenging to recruit in Africa. Getting the right candidate in Africa is not merely putting an ad in the newspaper or using any recruitment agency. It is a highly specialised recruitment field far more difficult than in a first world country as the barrier to entry into an African country can be great.

You would want to partner with an agency that provide key market insight, help with Employment Marketing, able to help with Special Recruitment Projects and recruitment drives.

In order to expand your business in Africa with a strong local presence, we like to work closely with you to understand your company goals and development strategy.

Two out of every three people living in Africa does not have access to electricity. This means that over 620 million people in Africa is without electricity. In Britian, London consumes more electricity than any country in Africa except South Africa. Costs for businesses are roughly three times as much as in the USA and Europe. Power outages costs many countries in Africa round one to four percent of their GDP every year.
Africa is going through a massive expansion in the Power Generation field. There are various reasons for this. Mainly large scale economic growth over many regions in the continent. Africa is set to have a percentage growth in development of the Power generation field higher than most other countries in the world. It is a rapidly expanding industry and many companies are constantly trying to cross the barrier to entry into Africa.
China is adding to its generating capacity the equivalent of the output of the whole of Africa. New projects and plans suggest that Africa's generating capacity will increase by more than half by the end of the decade. In South Africa the Medupi power station when it becomes active will output more power than the whole of Nigeria does. Kenya is aiming at tripling its power generation by adding Africa’s largest hydroelectric and geothermal plants.
There has been a massive increase in investment into the power generation capacity of Africa by private investors. The falling cost of renewable energy has made a favourable investment opportunity for investors. Africa is one of the best potential areas to develop renewable energy plants like wind, solar and hydropower. It is a smaller investment than to invest into a big power plant. Second to this it is also possible to provide energy directly to the customer off the grid which is another very big advantage.
