Recruitment doesn’t happen the same way in South Africa as in other countries in the world, but at the same time it is equally as important in the running of a business, and is an essential service in company’s operation.
We are able to assist with South African employment for foreign professionals and returning expatriate South Africans. We cater for those seeking work in South Africa, vacancies, and companies seeking qualified professionals, as well as for expatriate South Africans returning to the country.
There have always been advantages to living in South Africa, and now more than ever this is the case, with a developing first world infrastructure, a growing economic prowess internationally, and the successful hosting of the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
Getting employed in South Africa can be challenging to a foreigner, because a obtaining a work permit usually requires a concrete job offer (except in the case of an exceptional skills permit or a quota permit), and companies do not always make an offer of employment in the absence of a work permit. However, we can assist with advice on the types of positions available in the South African economy, as well as the expected typical remuneration figures. It is important to keep in mind that comparing salaries between countries by using the exchange rate as a point of departure is a waste of time, as the cost of living varies between countries and the exchange rate will give a distorted view of the situation.
