Deloitte To Launch Africa Talent for Youth

Deloitte Africa has announced the launch of Africa Talent, a joint venture with Deloitte Netherlands to connect Africa’s talents to global work opportunities while being physically based on the African continent.

The scheme will train and develop participants in data analytics, consulting, cybersecurity, and other specialized digital technology skills. They will also work in areas including financial and regulatory risk, sustainability as well as internal audit.

In a statement, Deloitte Africa Talent, Deloitte Africa, and Deloitte Netherlands said they had committed an initial investment of approximately R25m to the pilot initiative, to expand it to other geographies in Europe in 2023.

According to the company, the program aims to recruit graduates with limited experience and those without employment.

It stated that the initiative seeks to tap into the continent’s youthful and growing population, using hybrid and remote working technology to service the talent needs in areas characterized by an aging working population — like Western Europe
