The Africa and Emerging Markets division specialising in Engineering, ICT, Financial Markets, Management and Executive Search came into existence after combining favourable economic forecasts with 36 years of recruitment excellence.
In response to the World Bank Report (entitled “Global economic prospects for 2011” released on the 12th January 2011) and their clients’ growing needs, DAV aligned themselves with Africa, the BRIC countries and the world’s economic growth. According to the report, the expert forecast as follows: growth in China – 8.7% in 2011 and 8.4% in 2012, growth in India - 8.4% in 2011 and 8.7% in 2012, growth in Russia - 4% in 2011 and 4.2% in 2012, growth in Brazil - 4.4% in 2011 and 4.3% in 2012.
The IMF reported growth in sub-Saharan Africa is projected at 5.5% in 2011 and 5.75% in 2012 and it is expected to exceed growth in all other regions except developing Asia.
“DAV’s African and Emerging Markets division was created to assist clients looking to strengthen their talent in offices and locations across these international markets,” said Annette Kinnear MD and Author. “During the past 36 years, the SA market has looked to DAV to place the best professionals in SA. The launch of the Africa and Emerging Markets division formalizes where the firm is going. We must evolve to meet the requirements of our clients and the countries in which they do business.”
