When Global Career Company (GCC) launched its first Careers in Africa Summit in London 2003, the world was a slightly different place. South Africa had just successfully hosted the first Cricket World Cup on African soil, the global economy was just starting to recover from the slowdown caused by 9/11 and multinationals were just starting to look at the African Diaspora as an additional talent pool for their African operations. Seven years and ten London Summits later, South Africa now celebrates hosting the World Cup smoothly, the global economy is recovering from another downturn and African graduates and professionals residing outside of the continent are now firmly recognised as a quality source of talent for employers across Africa.

In an address issued during the recently concluded AU Summit in Addis Ababa, African Development Bank Group President, Donald Kaberuka confirmed that Africa would probably resume its pre-crisis growth path in 2010 and was likely to be the second fastest growing continent after Asia. Businesses across Africa also echo these sentiments and are therefore preparing for future productivity and growth. Central to this development is the drive to recruit professionals possessing critical skills and this has in turn led organisations like Barclays, ECOWAS, GE, Lafarge, Nestlé, Schlumberger and Vodafone to conduct international recruitment campaigns as part of their overall skills development strategy.
