eMigr8

By Ahmed Rahma

A tech training and development hub, Bincom Dev Center, has launched an initiative called eMigr8 and it is aimed to help tech enthusiasts on some opportunities in foreign countries.

The center’s Proservices Lead, Ms Olayinka Isimoya, while speaking on the initiative, said more than half of jobs now require some kind of technology skills, according to the United State Bureau of Labour Statistics.

“By 2022, more than 77 per cent of jobs will require some kind of technology skills which means that in three years, three out of four jobs will need some level of technology and software proficiency,” Ms Isimoya said.

She noted that as part of efforts to bridge the talents lacuna in tech ecosystem, provide hands-on experience in software development and other technology skills to produce globally attractive technology experts, the firm came up with eMigr8.

Ms Isimoya explained that the service explores schemes that enable technology resources to relocate based on different visa routes that countries offer to highly skilled tech talents, adding that some of the visa opportunities available include the United Kingdom – with the Technation Global Talent Visa, the United States, Canada and France.

According to her, those who go through Bincom Dev Center are trained and groomed to be well positioned and advantaged for relocation opportunities.

“Most tech companies are hunting for the right talents because applicants many times do not have the required skill set and relevant experience for the roles available,” she said.

She revealed that statistics have shown that most African youths that are unemployed are as a result of their lack of employable skills for 21st-century demands.

“They lack the right type of skill sets, experience and exposure required to build a meaningful career,” she said.

“Data from the Nigerian Bureau of Statistics shows that a whopping 27.1 per cent of Nigerians are unemployed as of the second quarter of 2020, an evidence that shows that many who fall within this bracket are also unemployable”, she explained.
