Career Coach: Retail vs Trade, services jobs: Infographic

NAIROBI, Kenya, Aug 15 – According to job market data by Data Fintech, job creation and job growth in the retail sector was suppressed in May 2017.

The median salary of employees in the retail sector dropped by 57.14 percent to Sh22,500 while job creation simultaneously decreased by 66.67 percent between April and May 2017.

It’s no surprise, therefore, to see job postings on Kenyan job board,, reduce to single digits as the traditional retail industry faces turmoil.

For employees who are seeking greener pastures, the best place to jump ship to is the trade and services sector, that has experienced a 76.67 percent growth in median salary that culminated to Sh35,357 between April 2017 and May 2017.

The study has been realized by Data Fintech, a Kenyan consumer data broker, based on data collected on Brighter Monday Kenya, the leading online job market platform in Kenya.
