Recruitment of young professionals at Genesis

We recruit globally for young talent that is passionate about unlocking value on the continent. Successful candidates are placed into a niche practice area that best suits their skill set, interests and personal capability.

You will be working on some of the most important challenges in the world, from Day 1 and be taught advanced problem-solving and consulting skills, and use them from the start.

We recruit newly or recently qualified graduates from African and international universities to join as analysts. On occasion, honours students and external junior hires with up to one year's working experience may also be considered for analyst positions.

Annually we recruit a cohort of analysts

Genesis recruits a cohort of analysts annually. These are the classes (from left) 2020, 2019 and 2018. Due to the COVID pandemic in 2021 the induction of the class of 2021 was done online.

Our mass recruitment programme runs according to the academic calendars in Africa and overseas. We recruit internationally in October - November and between January and March, as well as April-July in Africa each year. 

These processes are designed for current students at university-level or recently qualified and employed graduates who would like to pursue opportunities at Genesis. Applications for the 2023 graduate intake from universities in Africa is now closed.
