Meet Caroline Mbugua: Our Expert Talent Acquisition Manager
Caroline Mbugua joined MarketForce in December 2021 as the Talent Acquisition Manager. She is in charge of recruiting and hiring the great talent in the various departments at MarketForce across all the markets. In her role, she also focuses on onboarding, employer branding, culture initiatives and supporting the employees as part of the People and Culture team.
After graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in Communication and PR, Caroline started off her career as a Communication Officer working at a Fintech company that enabled investors to raise credit funds through crowdfunding to lend to SMEs in Africa via an internet platform. She later pivoted into a career in Human Resources after earning a Masters degree in Human Resource Management and found her niche in Talent Acquisition, gaining experience in both Recruitment and Executive Search. In her professional career thus far, she is proud to have found and placed talent in both technical and non technical industries at both junior and senior levels as well as worked with candidates and employers from various markets in Africa and beyond.
When she is not in meetings and calls, she enjoys spending time with her friends and family. She is also keen to learn new things, visit new places as well as go on road trips, play board games and watch movies and series. Her current favourites are Peaky Blinders and any police procedurals like Line of Duty, Capitani, Marcella, Collateral, Bosch and Broadchurch. Once in a while she also likes reading books.
MarketForce is a market-leading start-up that develops cutting-edge technology and is building the most comprehensive field sales and distribution platform for emerging markets. In Caroline’s own words,
“MarketForce is an innovative Technology company that is not afraid to question the status quo. As someone who is a firm supporter of leveraging technology to enhance lives, the impact that MarketForce has on merchants, empowering them to maximise their profits and providing access to financial services that will grow their businesses is not lost on me. Having enjoyed working with various African startups looking for exceptional talent, I was happy to join MarketForce and contribute to the company goals. MarketForce has great values and the people are a joy to work with. I am really excited about playing a part in ensuring MarketForce remains an amazing place to work by creating and driving initiatives that foster a rewarding and happy workplace environment”
