Local Recruitment in each country of operation
AFEX always seeks to identify and employ skilled and connected local nationals in each country of operation. We recruit with the objective of creating and then maintaining strong national management teams in each country. This approach allows AFEX to train up promising local national staff, while benefiting from the extensive local contacts and deep local knowledge these staff bring to AFEX.
Our local staff in each country are tasked not only with business development, and management of new business, but at the same time briefed as to the fundamental importance of good community relations, and the importance of maintaining the company’s positive reputation in each and every project we choose to undertake. AFEX recognises that long-term sustainable business growth is only possible if supported and encouraged by each local community we operate within.
Each African country team can call on the management resources not only of AFEX Head Office, but also of the Lonrho Group. AFEX maintains a database of qualified and experienced workers who can be mobilized quickly in response to unforeseen events at our client sites.
AFEX values the diverse backgrounds, skills and experience of our employees, and creates an inclusive culture where employees can thrive.
AFEX ensures fairness and equity of our recruitment and selection process by maintaining a non-discriminatory approach, and prohibits discrimination based on age, gender, ethnicity, race, nationality, religion or disability.
