ABOUT TAFUTA ASSOCIATES

We are passionate about partnering with innovative, disruptive and impactful companies driving positive change on the African continent.

We hold a track record in delivering global, international, regional as well as national searches. We have completed numerous assignments for positions based in Uganda and Kenya, but we have also executed searches for positions based across the wider Sub-Saharan Africa region.
Our research-driven approach is underpinned by a strong belief that each client mandate is unique. We believe that each assignment requires fresh research, a tailored approach and a targeted search campaign based on the specific requirements of the role and the organisation.
