Technite jobs on standby as Kwese awaits licence

Technite jobs on standby as Kwese awaits licence
Published: 03 September 2017 (385 Views)
As debate rages on whether Kwese TV will be licensed in the country if given the green light, Econet Media's offering could unlock thousands of new jobs for satellite installers in the country.

Through Technites, an enterprise of the mobile network giant, which facilitates online procurement of jobs, skilled technical handyman could soon develop a more formal and sustainable way of carrying out their duties.

In similar fashion as done when Kwese TV established in Nigeria recently, the online recruitment platform is expected to register and contract work to installers who had become redundant following the influx of other satellite dishes in urban areas over the years.

"Our business model really depends on maximising productivity through keeping these skilled professionals working and earning continuously," Technites business' executive head, Rahul Patel said in a statement.

The development comes at a time formal jobs are shrinking in the country as a result of several company closures owing to the instability of the economy.

Having created over 6 000 jobs on the continent and active in 11 countries, Patel pledged excellent service delivery and insurance on every job they facilitate.

"Our vision is to deliver great workmanship on every job, so we make it a must to train and deploy the best. We do not only guarantee quality of service but also provide great value for money to the customer," he said.

Technites has been providing outsourced services of trained and vetted workers to companies for the installation, maintenance and repairs of a variety of specialised technologies, including satellite, solar and fibre throughout Africa.

The tradesmen who register online are vetted offline and if successful, they are given access to an app that procures them for jobs in real time and once registered, all technites are eligible for free skills training and development in new trades.

So far, Technites has installed on behalf of Liquid Telecommunications in Rwanda, Lesotho and other countries with a workforce across Africa.

The Zimbabwean recruitment campaign extends the Technites service offer of high quality workmanship to smaller trades like plumbing, carpentry, generator maintenance, general electrical and handyman work.
