Driven by a growing IT offshoring sector, digital services companies operating in Morocco employ more than 10,000 IT developers with an annual growth rate of around 15%.
As part of this growth dynamic, Sofrecom Services Maroc now has nearly 500 employees and aims to have 1,000 employees by 2020, the vast majority of whom will be qualified IT developers capable of meeting Sofrecom's customers' needs.

This training will cover the critical skills valued by partner companies, including in particular technical, behavioural, methodological and communication dimensions. Training will be provided by an international provider with proven experience in this field. If necessary, and if the project conditions allow, a national training provider may also be called upon.
As a partner company, Sofrecom Services Maroc will be strongly involved in the design, implementation and evaluation of the training delivered. It will contribute in particular to the choice of content, the selection of service providers, the monitoring of the project and the professional placement of candidates.
The pilot training centre will be located in MEDZ's Casanearshore offshoring area so as to be close to partner companies.
Initially, the project will take place in two phases:
With this new agreement, Sofrecom Services Maroc is once again reaffirming its commitment to youth employment in Morocco. This project joins the numerous initiatives set up in conjunction with the world of academia and especially engineering schools to support students and improve their access to the world of business.
