Find the right candidate for the job. The ADC and its Partners know African agribusiness.


PROMOTIONAL FEATURE | 8 APRIL 2015

Many agriculture ventures in Africa have failed due to a lack of appropriate technical and/or business skills. "The most important aspect of operating an agriculture-related business in Africa is to have the right management on the ground, with the right skills and expertise to manage and execute on the proposed strategy of the business," says Omri van Zyl, leader of the Deloitte Africa Agribusiness Unit.

He adds that "finding upper to middle tier management is particularly challenging in Africa. Moreover, even more challenging is finding management that understands the commercial aspects of running an enterprise."

Specialists in agricultural recruitment

The Agribusiness Development Corporation (ADC), has teamed up with HR and recruitment specialists Agricultural Placements, Agrijob, M3 Human Capital Management and others to provide a unique and customised placement service for African agribusiness enterprises. We focus on finding and placing the right personnel for farming, agro-processing and other agribusiness companies and projects in the African region.

The group has a database of thousands of candidates and existing clients range from private individual farmers and agri-food enterprises to large corporate organisations involved in the agribusiness and food sector.

We have placed candidates in the following positions, to name a few:

  • Agricultural engineers
  • Abattoir and meat processing plant managers
  • Dairy managers
  • Cropping specialists
  • Beef producers and feedlot managers
  • Piggery managers
  • Fruit producers and packhouse managers
  • Vegetable growers
  • Sales managers and representatives in the animal feed, agricultural equipment and fertiliser industries
  • Agronomists
  • Hospitality industry managers (game farms and lodges)
  • Irrigation specialists
  • Aquaculture
  • Project managers

The ADC has been involved in business and project development activities across the region for many years and brings an unparalleled understanding of the African agribusiness project environment to the table. The group has already placed candidates in many sub-Saharan countries and its access to the large pool of South African agribusiness expertise and ability to recruit candidates 'from Africa for Africa' are strong selling points.

Rob Buchanan, managing director of Agricultural Placements, says he is seeing an "astronomical" increase in demand for quality people for projects in countries such as Nigeria, Ethiopia, Botswana, Zambia and Mozambique, to name a few. "When we started in 1998 we had very few clients outside of South Africa. But since then we have been able to expand our wings and I would say probably about 60% of our business at the moment comes from outside of South Africa."

What sets the group apart from other (traditional) personnel agencies? Says Marianne van der Laarse of Agrijob: "We specialise in agriculture and agribusiness placements. As a group we have joint recruitment expertise of well over 60 years. We understand the specific needs of the agribusiness industry. Our clients also appreciate the individual attention they receive from us."

If you are therefore looking to start or expand your farming, agro-processing or related business and need the right candidate (that will add value to your business) for the job, please contact Hennie van der Merwe of the ADC today at hrmanager@agri4africa.com.

The Group can also assist with the following value added HR services:

  • Job descriptions and contracts of service
  • Remuneration (incl. job evaluation and surveys)
