Stanbic, Chinese firms partner for job fair


Harare (New Ziana) – The Chamber of Chinese Enterprises in Zimbabwe and Stanbic Bank have partnered to showcase job opportunities within Chinese owned companies operating in Zimbabwe and how locals, especially the youth, can access them.

Through an event dubbed the China-Stanbic Job-Fair, the two will host a job fair from the 14th to 15th of October 2022 at Stanbic Park in Borrowdale, Harare.

In a notice, Stanbic said: “The China-Stanbic job fair is about giving our youth opportunities to find employment within Chinese owned companies.”

“The job fair will also allow the showcasing of different Chinese and Zimbabwean companies and what they have to offer,” it said.

The Chamber of Chinese Enterprises in Zimbabwe is a grouping of Chinese owned businesses operating in the country.

With the growing Chinese investment in the country, and the cordial relations between Zimbabwe and China, the job fair would come in handy for potential employees.

Currently, Chinese companies are involved in multi-billion-dollar infrastructure projects, including the expansion of the Hwange Thermal Power Station and the Robert Gabriel Mugabe International Airport which are being undertaken with Chinese support and funding.

On top of that, several Chinese companies are heavily invested in the country’s mining sector.

For example, Chinese firm, Zhejiang Huayou Cobalt, purchased the Arcadia lithium mine near Harare from Australia-listed Prospect Resources, while Sinomine, another Chinese firm, is injecting US$200 million to build a processing plant and increase lithium output at Bikita lithium mine, about 320 km from Harare, the capital of Zimbabwe.

Another Chinese firm, Dinson Iron and Steel Company is investing US$1 billion to set up a world class iron and steel plant, in Mvuma.

All these projects present employment opportunities which will be showcased at the China-Stanbic Fair.
