These are the companies that are hiring despite the Covid-19 pandemic

The Covid-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on the Kenyan economy. With businesses and offices closed, most companies have been forced to lay off their workers and send others on compulsory leave.

The transport industry and the hospitality industry are the main casualties. Kenyans all over the country are feeling the effects of the pandemic. A lot of Kenyans can no longer pay their house rent comfortably.

Fortunately, there are a few industries that are still hiring despite the downward trend. These are some of the industries that are still hiring.

Delivery companies

With most people preferring to stay at home, delivery companies are making a fortune. There is a high demand for delivery services, and consequently, there is a need to hire additional staff to keep up with demand.

Digital marketing

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, most companies shifted to a more digital approach. For this reason, digital marketing skills are in high demand. Some of the skills include social media management, marketing, sales, and customer support.

Manufacturing

Consumer goods are in high demand. Companies that manufacture products like bread, milk, juice, and similar items need to keep up with the high demand, thus the need for adding extra staff.

Online teaching

With schools closed, parents are looking for alternative ways that their children can learn. Online tutoring is in high demand since parents do not want to expose their children to the deadly virus.

Health sector

Donor funding has boosted the public health sector. The public health sector is hiring medical practitioners to help combat the Covid-19 pandemic.

On the other hand, the private health sector is not doing so well. Private hospitals have laid off a lot of stuff to cut down on costs.

Although these companies are hiring, the employer terms are not as favorable as they used to be. Employers are no longer offering long-term contracts.
