Duma Works is recruiting a General Manager for one of our clients, a curtain manufacturing business based in Dubai.
We brought in amazing panelists to lead the discussion about how HR and Talent Managers can recruit, train, and retain top talent in the Finance Sector in Kenya, and shared insights with professionals on how to position themselves for their career in the Finance Sector.
The opportunity is within a banking software provider. The role is based in Kenya but entails extensive travels to Francophone African countries. The candidate will be reporting to the Regional Sales Director and will have no one under their supervision.
First of all, a big thank you to all of our panelists and guests who so graciously attended our #WhatItTakes Talent in the Energy Sector event last Thursday! It was a huge success and I think we all learned a lot.
Thank you Elizabeth from M-KOPA Solar, Tim from Sanergy, Patrick from Skynotch Energy Africa, and James from Brands & Beyond.
We’ve been really fortunate at Duma Works from the start to have built an incredible company culture centered around taking time to help each other grow, pushing ourselves to test something new everyday, and upholding a collaborative workspace so no one department is ever working on a challenge by themselves.
When we began doubling our team every year, we took the time to officially codify these standards into our Company Culture Playbook. Essentially, our Bible.
Laszlo Bock, the Head of People Operations at Google, writes in his book Work Rules! Insights From Inside Google That Will Transform How You Live and Lead that people often approach the job interview and hiring in the same way that Garrison Keillor describes the fictional town of Lake Wobegon, a place where “all the children are above average.”
Laszlo comments that hiring is something we all think we are great at, but “we never go back to check if we are, and so we never get better.”
We always think we are all above average at interviewing…but when do we really check that assumption?
