Centum Investment on Monday entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the National Youth Service (NYS) in a deal that will see the investment company recruit 300 graduates from the government organization annually.
According to the MoU, Centum’s security subsidiary Tribus TSG, will offer employment to the selected youth in different sectors after the National Youth Service successfully vets and clears the selected teams.
The employment sectors will include: safety and security, real estate and education among others with additional graduates being integrated into Tribus’ ICT department.
Commenting on the new partnership, Centum’s Chief Executive Officer James Mworia in a series of tweets on his official twitter page revealed that giving jobs to worthy NYS graduates is vital in realizing Kenya’s economic development goals.
He said: “It’s not only an honor and privilege to partner with the National Youth Service but an obligation. It’s important that we link the youth with employment opportunities and most importantly create patriots who will make a difference in society.”
On his part, businessman and entrepreneur Chris Kirubi, who owns a 25.1 per cent stake in Centum, welcomed the move that will both empower the youth and support President Uhuru Kenyatta’s Big Four Agenda.
“The MoU will focus on the youth and how to align them with the Big 4 agenda. When we empower our youth, we help them in actualizing their full potential and in return they will contribute towards the economic growth of our nation,” Mr. Kirubi said in a tweet on his official twitter page.
