Working in Mozambique

Mozambique’s economy is built on the country’s significant natural resource, and access to international trade through its coastal ports. Political turmoil at the end of the last century significantly impacted the size of the economy, but many regional initiatives and global trade efforts have grown the markets for mining, food production and chemicals.

Why work in Mozambique?

Mozambique has a reputation for its culture and nightlife. The country is built on agricultural exports, but there are many thriving sectors within its economy. There are opportunities for early career and senior professionals in many industries. The country is one of the larger lusophone economies, offering excellent opportunities for Portuguese speakers. Taxation is broadly inline with neighbouring countries. Healthcare and education systems are underdeveloped, and you should explore private options to ensure high quality. The country has wonderful natural beauty which attracts many people to its shores.
