Employment of non-Namibians:

Our policy is to employ Namibians.  However, where we are unable to find suitably qualified Namibians to meet our commitments to our clients we seek to employ non-Namibians.  We do this so that we can meet the business needs of our clients.

Our Namibian identity: 

The Namibian practice has grown to over 70 individuals and over 40 bursars.  Our office is 92% Namibian, 62% are black and 56% female. We do this through the following means:

Employing and training Namibians whilst servicing our extensive portfolio of Namibian clients. Arranging positions for our qualified Namibian staff in our offices around the world so that they can gain truly international experience for the benefit of themselves and our clients when they return. This includes sending over 30 Namibians to:

  • United States of America
  • Luxembourg
  • Germany
  • South Africa
  • Saudi Arabia
  • United Kingdom
  • United Arab Emirates

Through these exchange programmes we also get inward short-term transferees from other member firms. Providing bursaries to Namibians, particularly those from previously disadvantaged background, to study toward their qualifications as Namibian chartered accountants. Our current 8 year spending program in this respect is:

Our qualifications:

Namibia is currently experiencing a severe shortage of qualified chartered accountants. We are pleased to note that we are well placed in this area.  Our firm currently has 21 chartered accountants in its employ, of which 9 are qualified black chartered accountants. Deloitte has produced, on average, a third of Namibia’s chartered accountants over the last 5 years, and over 42% of all black chartered accountants in Namibia.

Our regional and world wide operations:

As a firm we are closely linked into our Southern African network of offices, allowing us to draw on a wide variety of skills and experience. The commitment of our regional network to Namibia was, we believe, clearly demonstrated when the coastal region of Namibia was used as the location for our annual Southern African partners conference some years ago. This involved bringing some 200 partners to Namibia to gain an insight to Namibia whilst working together.
