Let’s find out where you can grow your career

Burkina Faso

Gold reserves in Burkina Faso have increased enormously in the past decade, and gold mining has propelled the economy forward over the past decade. However, agriculture in Burkina Faso is the driving force of its economic and social development. Despite its economic growth though, Burkina Faso remains one of the poorest countries in Africa.

Moving to the French-speaking country is for the more adventurous of expats, being at once culturally exciting and dangerous due to the civil unrest there. Terrorism threats are just some of the safety risks and expatriates should exercise caution and stay in touch with their country’s national embassy.

There are plenty of safe places for locals and expats alike to enjoy social pastimes, food, and entertainment. Various music festivals take place throughout the year in Burkina Faso. It is also home to one of Africa’s largest annual film festivals, FESPACO (Festival Panafricain du Cinéma de Ouagadougou), and going to the cinema is a common pastime in the country, particularly in the capital which has many open-air cinemas. Expats are sure to find a good social circle in Benin.

There is only one international school in the country, the International School of Ouagadougou in the capital city, Zone do Bois, so expats with children may wish to reside there.

There is not much in the way of private healthcare in Benin, and the public healthcare system is sadly lacking, however there are multiple facilities around the country including specialised institutions.

Burkina Faso requires highly skilled individuals in various sectors and seniority levels. Go to our Africa Jobs portal to find the Burkina Faso job board and see the latest positions available.
