Moses Kuria Advertises 2000 Jobs for Kenyans With US Data Firm
Moses Kuria Advertises 2000 Jobs for Kenyans With US Data Firm. In conjunction with a well-known US multinational firm, the Ministry of Investments, Trade, and Industry, under the direction of Cabinet Secretary Moses Kuria, has made a comprehensive list of job openings public. Sama, formerly known as Samasource, plans to hire more than 2,000 Kenyans, according to a statement from Mr. Kuria.
600 Kenyan professionals will be hired immediately as part of this hiring initiative this week, and a further 1,500 applicants will likely apply over the course of the following two weeks.
Following conversations between Mr. Kuria and Wendy Gonzelez, CEO of renowned international Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) behemoth Samasource, a decision has been made.
With a concentration on computer vision artificial intelligence (AI) professions, this action is in line with recent government initiatives to create one million BPO jobs in Kenya. The international firm has made known that it plans to hire young Kenyans for computer vision technology projects benefiting leading Fortune 500 organizations.
According to a press invitation from the company, they will start a youth empowerment and training project in keeping with the government’s objective of promoting employment in the digital economy. The hiring of Kenyan youngsters for various computer vision projects for top Fortune 500 firms will be formally announced by Sama.
The training sessions will take place in Nairobi and involve well-known individuals like Annepeace Alwala, vice president of Sama Global Service Delivery, and Eng John Kipchumba Tanui, principal secretary of the State Department of ICT and the Digital Economy.
The annual entry of one million graduates into the workforce has had a substantial impact on the high unemployment rates. The government has launched a number of efforts and programs to promote self-employment as a workable solution in order to address this problem.
One of these projects entails the creation of an outsourcing hub to make it easier for international businesses to hire Kenyan workers. With this tactical approach, Kenyan workers will have opportunities and the issues caused by high unemployment rates would be addressed.
