Young people who have completed their secondary education, students, recent graduates, job seekers and their parents will discover the wide range of professional opportunities offered by the financial sector in Mauritius. This was during the Job and Education Fair, on Saturday July 2. This event, organized by Mauritius Finance in partnership with the Ministry of Financial Services, will be held from 9am to 4pm in Atal Bihari Vajpayee Tower in the cybercity of Ebène.
The show will welcome nearly twenty employers from the financial services sector including Vistra Mauritius, Axis Fiduciary Ltd, IQ-EQ Global Business Ltd, Sanne Mauritius, Intercontinental Trust Ltd, APEX Fund Services Ltd, Ocorian , Trident Trust Ltd, Trust Qore (Mauritius) Ltd, Rogers Capital, DTOS Ltd, BTG Management Services (Mauritius) Ltd, BCP Bank (Mauritius) Ltd, Matco Ltd Sovereign Trust Ltd, and others.
Samade Jhummun, CEO of Mauritius Finance, says the goal is to bring together multiple operators so they can meet their future employees. In particular by offering them an accurate idea of all the job opportunities that already exist. “Currently, 300 jobs are available for beginners in the sector, but also for young professionals with the least amount of experience,” he added.
Note that many operators present at the show will conduct job interviews for jobs that will be filled with immediate impact. Those who graduate soon will also have the opportunity to be recruited under the Graduate Programs offered by the companies. While others will collect CVs from job seekers to assess the possibility of offering them a paid internship under the Human Resource Development Council’s National Training and Reskilling Scheme. A permanent job will also be offered to trainees who especially shine during their stay with the company.
The financial services industry currently has 20,000 professionals. According to estimates by Mauritius Finance, 2,000 more jobs will be filled by 2023 in this industry, which is different from others due to high wage levels and the speed with which its professionals climb the ladder within their companies. .
For Shahed Hoolash, Chairperson of Mauritius Finance, the Job and Education Fair will be an opportunity to demystify the financial services sector in the eyes of visitors. “Many young people believe that only people with a finance degree or accounting certifications can pursue financial services careers. This is not the case. The sector needs dynamic young people, strict and willing to learn. Visitors to the show will discover many career opportunities that they never suspected existed and that, in many cases, are also open to those who hold an HSC ”, he assured us.

The London College of Accountancy, Université Panthéon-Assas Paris II, Université des Mascareignes, Curtin Mauritius, Financial Services Institute, Mauritius Finance Training Institution, Financial Services Fund as well as HRDC will offer visitors an overview of their special training .
Mauritius Finance will also allow those who want to pursue a career in the finance sector to discover the extensive certifications and professional development programs it offers along with renowned international institutions such as ICA, CLTI, CISI, STEP and Manchester Business Alliance. .
