Working in Liberia

Liberia is rich in mineral and natural resources, and the economy has significant potential. As the economy grows, it is mainly powered by agriculture, but the main exports of rubber, timber and iron are sent to Europe and the USA. As a member of ECOWAS it has close ties with regional partners.

Why work in Liberia?

Liberia is a developing economy, but still relies on subsistence farming and therefore job opportunities are limited. The taxation system is comparable to other West African countries. The healthcare and education systems are generally under developed, so private provision is essential. Security can be problematic, so following guidance from your employer is essential. You should not travel outside of the capital city, and be aware of your surroundings at all times.
