Hiring in Pakistan

Known for its spicy cuisine, fantastically diverse landscapes and successful cricket team, Pakistan has close ties with the UK, US, UAE and other nations across the world thanks to high emigration levels since the 1950s and 60s. This developing nation of 226 million is on many watchlists for future growth as the emerging middle class gains access to better education, better opportunities and more international investment and relationships.

The Pakistani economy is the world’s 23rd largest in terms of purchasing parity and 42nd largest in terms of GDP. Growth has been stymied at times thanks to varying levels of international socio-economic and political freedoms, but has remained overall steady, with good forecasts based on a growing service industry and natural resources yet to be exploited.

Hiring in Pakistan is gaining popularity as workers gain better education and become more highly skilled. Pakistan has the world’s 10th largest workforce and many international businesses from garment manufacturers to telephony service providers are helping to improve informal working contracts and historically lacking worker’s rights.
