German Senior Experten Services (SES)

The German Senior Expert Service are continuing to provide their service to business in Zimbabwe and recently hosted a workshop to highlight how local industries can access their services.

SES is Germany’s leading volunteering organisation for experts and executives who are either retired or taking some time off from their normal business and it has been operating since 1983 across Africa, Asia, Latin America, East and Southeast Europe.

SES provides expert knowledge and practical help to boost sustainable economic and social development and the assignments focus on strengthening local skills across sectors and industries.

SES experts have experience in crafts and technology, trade and sales, education and training, health and welfare among other fields. Key assignment areas of service provided by the experts include training and instruction of Technical and Executive Staff, development of sales and marketing strategies, workflow optimization and quality management.
