Consultancy.org, a global platform for the international consulting industry, has made a foray into the South African market.
The launch of Consultancy.co.za expands the startup’s online footprint to cover Africa’s most important market for consulting services.
With an estimated size of around $1.3 billion, South Africa is Africa’s largest management consulting market by revenue, accounting for over half of the continent’s overall industry. South Africa’s advisory market has seen growth in recent years, advancing the maturity of the industry in both services and operations, with the majority of the globe’s top 50 consulting firms being active in the country today.
“South Africa is one of the more mature consulting industries in the world, and one that is set to gain importance as Africa grows its population and prosperity in the coming decades,” says Larry Zeenny, Consultancy.org Co-Founder.
“With the launch of a dedicated platform for the South African market, we aim at becoming the market’s preferred online portal for reference, serving the interests of consultants – both external and internal advisors – job seekers and students, as well as clients of consulting firms.”
Besides providing visitors with the latest news of the industry, Consultancy.co.za will facilitate the matching process for candidates seeking jobs at the top of the industry by providing an overview of consultancy jobs in South Africa. Further, a research team with a track record at strategy consulting firms and the Big Four will conduct proprietary research on the market, as well as work with consultancies on analysis and thought leadership.
Launched in 2017, Consultancy.org works with over 150 consulting firms globally, with a number of high-profile names committing their support to the South African platform as founding partners.
“We are proud to partner with many of the top names in the industry, and look forward to representing their interests in South Africa,” says Zeenny.
