Glovo, a global technology and delivery company, is initiating a training program aimed at Kenyan graduates to address the gap between education and the job market. The program, named the ‘Glovo Africa Graduate Programme,’ aims to develop young Kenyan talent and will extend to other African countries as well.

The company stated, “In a move to harness the potential of young Kenyan professionals, we are thrilled to announce the commencement of our new graduate program. The initiative is specifically tailored to recruit and develop the Kenyan and African promising talent into the job market.”

Rasheeda Sedhosime, the head of people Africa at Glovo, emphasized the positive impact of the program, stating, “The Glovo Graduate Programme is a testament to our commitment to nurturing the next generation of leaders in Africa.”

The one-year training program offers opportunities in various sectors within the company, including operations, quick-commerce, partners & brands, finance & strategy, and brand marketing services.

Eligibility for the program includes individuals with a University degree in management, science, or social science disciplines, with 0 to 2 years of professional experience.

Glovo’s initiative addresses concerns about the widening skills gap in the job market in Kenya, where many youths remain unemployed despite holding educational qualifications. Juma Mukhwana, from the state department for Trade and Investments, highlighted the challenge of having to retrain graduates due to skill gaps observed by industries during recruitment.
