Chinese tech firm Huawei is looking to hire top global talent to support its innovation strategy and green intelligent world.

"We don't mind where you’re from, where you graduated, or what you studied, as long as you have a dream for the future and believe you can make it happen, we want you to come and join us,” Mr Hu said.

Kenya is one of the participating nations in a series of digital skills development programmes aimed at enhancing ICT talent, skills training and transfer as well as creating more jobs in the ICT sector through collaboration with various stakeholders.

The Top Minds Recruitment plan is supported by local universities who commend it for complementing their computer science courses.
