Finding jobs in Africa has as much to do with the employment opportunities available in each country as it has to do with your qualifications to follow a certain career path. When a country is thriving and the economy is good, job opportunities flourish. Strong economies allow for growth in all areas and industries, and as a result that growth can lead to an improvement in the jobs that are available.
Africa is divided into 6 regions with each region enjoying a different amount of success in placing people into the right jobs in Africa. The CA Global Group has many years of experience in placing the right people in the right companies. And our statistics, collected between the years of 2009 and 2015, show exactly how many candidates have been placed into jobs in the various African nations. We are going to share some of the statistics that we have collected and we hope that when you are next looking for a job in Africa that you keep these numbers in mind.
The most prosperous regions for jobs in Africa
As mentioned, Africa is divided into 6 easily identifiable regions, namely: Central Africa, East Africa, Indian Ocean, North Africa, Southern Africa and West Africa. Depending on the nations within these regions, job opportunities vary. The general pattern is that the stronger the economy of a country the more job opportunities are available. These are the nations that enjoyed the most job placements between 2009 and 2015.
- Jobs in Angola
Angola has come a long way since its civil strife and today it offers some great working opportunities.

Found in central Africa, the Republic of Congo has had its fair share of economic ups and downs.
