There’s only one way to fulfill our motto of Improving Lives and Organizations: we have to deliver what we promise.
That’s why you should work with us.

The Ascending Way

Good things happen when a group of workers joins forces, buys a piece of the company they work for and starts something new together.

That’s how Ascending started. The year was 2017. The group of people was our founders: Andrew Schnitzer da Silva and Nuno Teves, They got together to acquire Adcorp’s interests in Angola and Mozambique, and use their 15 years of experience to start Ascending.

Ascending is an HR specialist group that focus on optimized workforce solutions and internationally recognized technical training.

We have a proven track of record providing blue and white collar profiles for various offshore and onshore industries.
We built, manage, and operate 3 unique and certified training facilities in Mozambique – and we are the first ECITB Certified Training Institution in the country.
We frequently deliver training programs in a variety of technical trades, areas and soft skills.
We proudly promote local content and gender equality: more than 90% of the employees we provide are locals and 35% of our trainees are Women.
We identify innovative forms of collaboration to better understand our clients’ needs and adapt our offerings to create higher value.


A commitment to superior professionalism, upholding industry standards and continued learning. That’s what certification means. We comply and deliver according to industry requirements and standards of several national and international organizations:
