Hiring trends across Africa for 2018

We expect measured business confidence in 2018, contingent on political stability.

In West Africa, French speaking countries such as Cote d’Ivoire will attract foreign investment with financial services, insurance and mining all expecting growth. Investment in infrastructure will drive demand for engineering professionals, while growing financial services firms will seek candidates with international experience.

Salary growth will vary by region, with salaries in East and West Africa expected to rise by around 7-10%, with premiums paid to candidates with high-demand skill sets.

Skills shortages will be one of the most significant challenges when recruiting. Employers should take an open-minded approach to professionals with transferable skills and the potential to upskill junior employees.

When looking to recruit, businesses should consider how they present themselves to candidates in terms of company culture, work-life balance and training and development.
