Hiring in Eswatini

Formerly the Kingdom of Swaziland, Eswatini changed name in 2018 to be closer that of the king. Indeed, Swaziland is famous for being Africa’s last absolute monarchy, and for being completely landlocked by neighbour South Africa.

Eswatini is a developing nation with an economy still centred around agriculture (75% of the population practices subsistence farming) and is highly dependent on South Africa, to whom it exports almost everything. Indeed the currency of Eswatini is pegged to the South African rand.

Hiring in Eswatini is challenging thanks to extensive informal working practices and some of the lowest wages and poorest working conditions in Africa. Corruption is widespread and several bouts of external investment have little to incite change. An international payroll with experience of Eswatini’s landscape is a necessity for foreign investors.
