Hiring in Egypt

The land of the pyramids, pharaohs and River Nile has two feet firmly on both sides of history; the ancient from the textbooks, and the expanding city of Cairo in the textbooks of the future.

Egypt was one of the nations that saw possibly the most serious change off the back of the Arab Spring. The long-term dictator Hosni Mubarak was soon gone, and the government torn open, and reform expected. However, it feel like true revolution is still in its early days, with Egypt’s human rights and state executions lower and higher than they’ve ever been.

Despite the backdrop, Egypt has thrown open its door for foreign investment as it expands the groaning capital and financial centre Cairo, a true megacity that is tipping the 20-million-inhabitant mark.

A new capital, along with purpose-built government buildings, will expand Cairo’s economy. Hiring in Egypt is thus becoming slightly easier as the government compounds this interest from abroad, with improved working conditions seen over the last decade especially.
