African Chamber Launches Jobs Portal to Boost Local Content
African Energy Chamber and its partners have launches a new energy jobs portal that would ultimately boost local content.
The platform will also assist local and international companies in attracting local talent across 30 different skills set in the oil & gas, power and renewable energy sectors.
African Energy Chamber said the idea is to maximize the saving of local jobs and assist in the recovery of African energy markets after the COVID-19 crisis. The Chamber stated that it will be a free-of-access jobs portal for trained and qualified African workforce.
The collaborative platform is accessible at www.EnergyChamber.org/jobs and relays the latest jobs opportunities for Africans across the continent’s energy markets, the statement stated yesterday.
“The platform will assist local and international companies in attracting local talent across 30 different skills set in the oil & gas, power and renewable energy sectors. All energy companies operating in Africa are able to post their job offers for free, and these will be relayed on the platform and via the Chamber’s communications channels after approval by the Chamber’s admin and team,” the chamber said.
The jobs portal will be operated and maintained by the African Energy Chamber in order to avoid fraud and guarantee the credibility of the offers available.
“Local content has always been the number one priority of the African Energy Chamber when advocating for an energy industry that works for Africans and builds truly sustainable business models. With this new platform, we are getting rid of a lot of entry barriers set on the job market by expensive recruitment agencies.
“This initiative of the Chamber is non lucrative and we encourage all African and international companies to work with us on boosting local jobs creation to support the recovery of our industry and build true sustainability,” Nj Ayuk, Executive Chairman at the African Energy Chamber, stated.
He said the African Energy Chamber is encouraging all companies in search of African talent across the energy industry to submit their job offers directly online via the platform. Any related requests or queries can be addressed to [email protected].
