Partner with Umuzi to transform your digital talent pipeline.

South African companies have to transform. Many companies are scrambling to meet the the more stringent BBBEE requirements, which come into effect in 2018. Too often, BBBEE Skills Development and Enterprise Development budgets get wasted on meeting these minimum targets, rather than contributing to true transformation and developing diverse, world-class talent.

Umuzi is a unique organisation that is partnering with leading South African companies in order to use BBBEE Skills and Enterprise Development budgets, SETA funding, and SARS tax rebates, to build a sustainable talent pipeline for scarce skills. We’ve built successful partnerships with Investec, FCB, Native VML, King James, FoxP2, and many more creative and tech industry leaders.
