Zimbabwe 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 opportunities for highly paid work. The healthcare system is government run and lacks the quality of others in Africa, so many professionals choose private arrangements. The education system is amongst the better options in Africa, but many professionals explore private options if possible. 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 Zimbabwe.
