Employment of non-Namibians

Our policy is to employ Namibians.  However, where we are unable to find suitably qualified Namibians to meet our commitments to our clients we seek to employ non-Namibians.  We do this so that we can meet the business needs of our clients.

Our Qualifications

Deloitte Namibia has a significant number of Chartered Accountants (CA's) in relation to its total number of professional employees.  Our firm currently has 25 chartered accountants in its employ, of which 11 are qualified black chartered accountants.  Deloitte has produced, on average, a third of Namibia’s chartered accountants over the last 5 years, and over 42% of all black chartered accountants in Namibia.

Our other specialized Risk Advisory department includes, amongst others, highly specialized computer audit capability, including Certified Information Systems Auditors (CISAs).

Gerda Brand, who holds Law degrees, HDip Tax and a Diploma in VAT, is the Tax Director heading up the tax division.  The team comprising five full time tax professionals has a depth of knowledge covering the entire spectrum of taxes.

Staff Development

As a firm we are dedicated to the development of our Namibian staff. We do this through providing bursaries to Namibians, particularly those from previously disadvantaged backgrounds, to study toward their qualifications as Namibian chartered accountants.  Our past 11-year spending program in this respect has seen spending to the amount of N$ 8, 7 million (broken down in the table on the left).

Apart from the this, various other training programs and courses are also offered to staff such as management induction, study support, MyBusiness School 1, 2 and 3 as well as various other technical and soft skills courses.
