Leading online jobs platform Brighter Monday has partnered with the French
Chamber of Commerce in Kenya to help businesses recruit the right talent and empower expatriates
to secure job opportunities in the country.

Kenyan companies. The Chamber also helps French companies and entrepreneurs set up in the Country.
This Partnership will see the members of the Chamber access capacity building forums and relevant
content to equip them with the HR expertise required to recruit locally and successfully manage a
workforce in Kenya. Additionally, French and foreign nationals seeking job opportunities will be
coached on how to effectively craft job applications. The collaboration will also open up employment
opportunities for Kenyans in French companies that are present in the country.

the French Chamber of Commerce in Kenya will help French businesses in the country to navigate
the recruitment space and establish productive HR processes.

Mr. Mutuma said. He added, “It will also connect French nationals looking for jobs in Kenya to
relevant career opportunities and regular career advice.”
According to Laure Paugam who is the Executive Director at the French Chamber of Commerce in
Kenya, the collaboration will ensure French companies access leading HR expertise to create and
build on their recruitment and workforce management systems. “One of our key areas of focus is to
create opportunities for our members to benefit from relevant training in establishing localised HR
processes, as well as facilitate the process of seeking and securing job opportunities for French
nationals.” she said, adding that the partnership will further enhance the global competitiveness and
employability of French nationals in the country.
