Hiring in Botswana

The South African nation of Botswana, which is located North of South Africa, is famous for having some of the best wilderness and wildlife on the continent, especially in the vast Kalahari desert, which makes up around 70% of the country.

After gaining independence from Great Britain in 1966, Botswana has avoided some of the issues that plague fellow post-colonial republics.

As well as one of the highest GDPs in Africa and one of the lowest corruption indexes, Botswana has access to various natural resources, including diamonds, gold, nickel and copper, exports of which make up the majority of Botswana’s economy.

Hiring in Botswana is still informal and workers enjoy some but limited employment laws and regulation. Investment regulations from abroad are transparent, and bureaucratic procedures are streamlined, but often slow.
