High Potentials

The limited skills pool across the continent has increased the demand for skills at managerial level, as well as for technical skills of every kind – particularly information technology, engineering and finance.

Amrop Landelahni helps our clients source high potentials so as to build a leadership cadre that can take the organisation forward into new markets in Africa and across far-flung geographies.

We advise our clients to follow a three-pronged approach of ‘buy, borrow and build’:

  • Buying skills of Africans living locally or abroad, as well as expats, where those skills are crucial to the business
  • Borrowing from other countries or seconding from within
  • Building local skills pool by investing in high potential candidates, particularly in countries such as Ghana where localisation targets are steep. To this end, we offer high quality assessment tools and various leadership development and coaching services. 

Using research processes traditionally found only in executive search, we have created a bespoke talent mapping process for sourcing senior and mid-level managers, professionals and high potentials.

We follow a rigorous planning, scoping and process methodology to ensure that candidates’ profiles are aligned with our client’s needs.

This process makes Amrop Landelahni effective in sourcing the best talent available to underpin our clients’ succession planning efforts.

Sourcing candidates from the Africa diaspora network and foreign expatriates from across the globe, we have completed several assignments to support our clients’ requirements for technical skills and leadership succession across the continent.

Our track record in black and female scarce skills appointments is unsurpassed.
