Working in Guinea

The Guinea economy is largely based on agriculture, and has significant potential for growth. They have significant mineral resources, which make up a significant proportion of exports. As a member of ECOWAS they have strong links to regional partners.

Why work in Guinea?

Guinea is one of the more challenging places to live and work in Africa. The country is in the midst of a continued development, meaning there are less significant industries in which to work. The country has many natural resources, which is the main source of employment. Mining and agricultural production offer professionals the chance to find jobs. The healthcare and education systems are very underdeveloped, and you will need access to private options for your safety and comfort. Crime is a particular issue, especially late at night, and you should follow security advice from your employer. It is essential to have a confirmed job role before travelling to Guinea.
