Why work in South Africa

South Africa is a country with over 60 million people  and according to the Quarterly Labour Force Survey (QLFS) the official national unemployment rate stand at 34.5%.

At the same time the Department of Home Affairs publishes a critical skills list shortage for South Africa, which covers the skills which are in short supply in the country.

To name just a few a few of the skills on this list are actuaries, nurses, engineers, scientists and software developers.


People who have these skills can even apply for special visas and apply for jobs within the country.

What makes the opportunity of living in South Africa interesting is that professionals and generally everyone on the critical skill shortage list get paid about the same amounts that they would be paid in a first world country however the cost of living in South Africa is substantially less so one could end up having a very high standard of living.


For example the cost of the average property in Sandton is R2.8 million rand while Sandton is one of the most exclusive suburbs to live in Johannesburg. The average CA(SA) in South Africa would earn about R650K per year and assuming a tax rate of 45% would be left with R357K. Assuming no other expenses they would pay this house off in about 7 years while a similar calculation performed in the UK would take someone over 30 years to pay off their property.

Obviously before comparing living in South Africa to other countries one would also need to evaluate the crime rate, education system and overall work life balance.


There are a number of places one could choose to live and work and we have compiled a comprehensive guide about the advantages and opportunities working in Cape Town and Johannesburg.
