Working in Niger

The Niger economy is heavily based on mining of uranium, oil and general agricultural production. It has good trade links with France and regional partners. It is a member of ECOWAS.

Why work in Niger?

Niger provides job opportunities in the mining, energy and oil & gas sectors. The country has developed over recent years, but remains relatively low on the UN developmental indexes. Healthcare and education are underdeveloped and anyone moving to Niger for work would be wise to find private alternatives for both. The country suffers from high levels of petty crime, so following the security advice of your employer is vital.
