We have developed a so-called Opportunity Card- High paying jobs in Germany.
German Ambassador to Kenya, Sebastian Groth has stated that Kenyans can now enroll in a new opportunity that will be high paying.
He explained that the Opportunity Card is a new regulated way of attracting skilled workers from non-EU countries to Germany.
He stated,”We have developed a so-called Opportunity Card where you can gain credit points by certain qualifications like language skills or skills in professions that are in high demand in Germany.”
Germany is seeking to use the Opportunity Card in Kenya in order to tap into the country’s workforce in which some 85 per cent of employees do work and earn a living.
He explained,” Between 80 to 85% of Kenyans work in the informal sector we can tap into this and work together to bring few of them to Germany.”
The program began in September 2022 after being launched by the German government. Its main objective is to attract international talents, and Kenya is a key target due to her highly-skilled labour force.
Groth stated,” You can invest and make good business here and even have Kenyan investments in Germany. We’re not leaving behind this development cooperation, but we’re evolving more into a political partnership.”
