Hiring in Senegal

One of West Africa’s most populous and fastest-growing nations, Senegal is famous for its footballers, its colourful music and its spicy, delicious dishes. Senegal’s emerging economy and the international strength of capital city Dakar make Senegal a popular place to invest in an often challenging region of the world.

Senegal’s economy is dominated by mining, tourism and agriculture, and manufacturing is emerging as a key industry. Thanks to French being the official language of Senegal, France remains an important trading partner and many of Senegal’s banks and financial institutions have close ties with French organisations.

Hiring in Senegal is improving, but issues like corruption and a lack of infrastructure are still widespread. Employment laws are established but often ignored and many Senegalese workers still lack competitive wages and employment contracts. An expert international payroll partner is highly recommended to navigate bureaucracy and complex taxation.
