Special Initiative Jobs (SI Jobs)

© GIZ, SI-Jobs

SI Jobs promotes economic growth through job creation in selected industrial clusters. It targets private sector development for selected geographical areas and economic clusters and promotes sustainable investments that lead to more employment. To promote job creation and address the problem of unemployment, SI jobs collaborates with Ethiopian small and medium enterprises to expand their capacities, collaborates with the private sector and the Industrial Park Development Cooperation (IPDC) to improve conditions for sustainable job-creating production in the industrial parks and promotes the cooperation between Ethiopian and international companies.

On the one hand, SI Jobs is supporting the private sector by providing advisory services, supporting technical innovations, and developing human capacities. On the other hand, SI Jobs is collaborating with the public sector to create a solid institutional framework, improve the business environment, and promote Ethiopia’s image abroad.

Commissioned by Germany’s Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), the Special Initiative Jobs (SI Jobs) program is implemented by the Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit GmbH (GIZ)
