Hiring in Brazil

South America’s largest and the world’s fourth largest country is famous for its football team, it’s vibrant carnivals and music, and of course the dense Amazon rainforest, the world’s largest tropical forest. However, Brazil has also gained attention as one of the world’s fastest growing economies, gaining its entry into the BRIC (Brazil, India, China) watchlist for future superpowers.

Brazil’s economy, which is the world’s 9th largest, has diversified and developed from agriculture-focused to encompass fossil fuels, precious metals, agriculture and manufacturing.

Brazil’s rich/poor divide is one of the most extreme in the world, but its 90 million-strong workforce has become more skilled and more specialised, especially in the last decade as Brazil has cemented its place in global economics. With this, employing in Brazil has become less informal, including legally defined working hours per week.
