Following the success of the 2021 programme, TCSJOHNHUXLEY Africa and umAfrika Gaming Technologies have again combined resources to support the 2022 Learnership Programme – an important initiative that upskills young unemployed South Africans so they can go on to find work in the gaming industry.

Launched in 2016 the one year leadership programme aims to develop students’ skill sets and provide them with the experience of working environments in South Africa, as well as familiarising them with general operations and procedures. One of the main objectives of the programme is to strengthen and expand the gaming industry with qualified engineering technicians by recruiting local talent from higher education institutions.

Ten students, from various higher learning institutions were selected for the programme. The students then had to complete a series of assessment procedures to gauge their capabilities, and throughout the year, had to satisfy various elementary outcomes before successful completion of the training.

Nosipho Fakude, a student who was part of the 2021 learnership, described the programme as an eye-opening experience. “The programme is truly interesting, and I am learning so much, not only about field of study – engineering, but that of the gaming industry through TCSJOHNHUXLEY and umAfrika Gaming Technologies.”

TCSJOHNHUXLEY wishes the 2021 Technical Learnership Programme candidates all the best for the future and welcomes the the Class of 2022 to this exciting journey ahead.

Gauselmann employees from Serbia climb Kilimanjaro

To experience the sunrise from the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro: this was the goal of four employees from Gauselmann subsidiary MERKUR Games d.o.o., which consolidates the Group’s activities in Serbia. During a six-day expedition, together with ten other adventurers, they climbed the highest mountain on the African continent – to be rewarded with a breathtaking view from Uhuru Peak, at 5,895 metres above sea level.

“It was an incredible battle of wills, with the forces of nature, patience and our own endurance,” says Branko Kokir, Managing Director at MERKUR Games d.o.o. and initiator of the expedition, looking back on the feat. Climbing for six to eight hours, the team covered ten kilometres on foot and overcame a difference in altitude of 1,000 metres each day. From grasslands, alpine meadows and tropical rainforests, moorlands and desert plateaus, to snow- and ice-covered regions: day by day, the team pressed onward through different climatic zones in their quest to reach the summit of Kilimanjaro. At an altitude of 4,700 metres above sea level, the adventurers set off on the final leg: the ascent to Uhuru Peak. In the final nighttime push, the team covered 5.8 kilometres in 7.5 hours before reaching the cross on the summit in time for sunrise just before 7 a.m. and proudly displaying a flag with the MERKUR sun symbol over Uhuru Peak.

A cameraman who documented the expedition with his camera and interviews was also part of the 14-member team. The material is being broadcast in six 30-minute episodes on “Sport Klub”, the leading sports channel in the Balkans. The MERKUR sun also features as a faithful companion on the trek to Africa’s highest peak: during the entire journey, the team members wore T-shirts, sew-on badges, caps and carried flags. The local population was thrilled to be given T-shirts and footballs with the MERKUR sun as a gift from the Gauselmann Group. “Climbing Kilimanjaro is a remarkable feat of will. I am immensely proud that our Serbian employees took the MERKUR sun along for the trip and shone it over the roof of Africa,” says company founder and Chairman of the Management Board Paul Gauselmann.

The Gauselmann Group is represented in Serbia by its MERKUR Games d.o.o. subsidiary. The company opened the first gaming arcade there in 2012 under the MERKUR Automat Klub brand. In 2017, business activities in the Serbian market were systematically expanded through strategic partnerships. With a 50 per cent equity holding respectively in the two companies Balkan Bet and MERKUR Xtip, the Gauselmann Group is optimally positioned with some 140 land-based venues as well as online in the Serbian Republic.
