Working in Rwanda

Rwanda is often seen as a revolutionary economy in Africa. It has grown significantly over the last 10 years, with industries including mining, agriculture and manufacturing. Unemployment is very low, and connections with East Africa neighbours, the Middle East and China all bolster the country’s growth.

Working in Rwanda

Rwanda is a growing nation that has opportunities for skilled workers to support the tea and coffee industries, services sector and mining industry. The country has developed significantly since its troubled past, and investment is pouring into the country as it grows. Taxation is average for the region, and there are career opportunities for early career and senior professionals. The healthcare and education provision have not developed at the same rate as the countries economic growth, so private alternatives will be important for those relocating.
