Exciting Merger News

On May 1st, 2018, Summit Recruitment and Search and Kama Kazi Africa Ltd merged, to become the largest Search and Recruitment company in East Africa, offering staffing solutions across the African continent at all levels.

With headquarters in Nairobi, Kenya Summit has primarily dealt with Executive Search and headhunting assignments over the last few years in a large variety of specialised sectors, servicing clients across East Africa, South Africa and greater Africa.

Kama Kazi, who will be taking the name of Summit Recruitment & Search, has traditionally been exceptionally strong in the Hospitality, Real Estate, Tech and NGO fields, recruiting junior to mid-level positions and offering staffing solutions to clients across East Africa.

Both organisations offer an unparalleled service to Clients within their sectors and the merger allows the organisation to strengthen its leadership position within the Search and Recruitment sectors and allows the Company to offer the greatest depth and breadth of industry and geographic specialisation across the African continent.

As we expand our reach and capabilities, key to us is that we will stay true to our Mission of delivering International Standards with Local Expertise, with the same personal touch that we have always offered our Candidates and Clients. Please be assured that we will continue to offer this same personalised service.
