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 and associates. 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 young professionals


We welcomed to our first cohort of young professionals in 2024 at the Joburg head office. This was the fun shot. 

Genesis recruits a cohort of analysts and associates annually. In 2023 induction was hybrid for the new recruits to the firm. Bottom row: These are the classes (from left) 2020, 2019 and 2018. Due to the COVID pandemic the induction of the classes of 2021 and 2022 were only done online.

Our mass recruitment programme runs according to the academic calendars in Africa and overseas. We recruit internationally from September to December in the Northern Hemisphere and in Africa from April to June 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 Africa round has closed.

The dates for the 2024 international round will be published here in mid 2024.

We also recognise that there are prospective candidates who are interested in transitioning into economics consulting and prospective candidates may submit their profiles in anticipation of future opportunities using this link. Our recruitment staff will respond if you are successful.
