Hi all,

Potentially moving to Accra from South Africa around September 2017. It will be for a 2 year contract for an airline. Just wanted to check what nationalities are in and around Accra in the expat community? Any South Africans in the bunch? Thanks in advance for all the advice and patience with my endless questions!



Lots of South Africans and many other nationalities represented

Hi there,

Ghana is always ready to welcome you. I live around TEMA, the industrial city of Ghana and would love to help answer your questions.
Have a lovely day Sir.


Good evening! I am a ship building engineer from Russia and I am a big fan of Ghana. I believe that Ghana is beautiful place with welcoming people and interesting culture. My wife and I are going to move to Ghana and now we searching for job there. As I have huge experience in marine engineering I looking for job in Tema and Takoradi, cause as far as I know huge marine ports are there. Also we keen on Accra, so I can work there.
In my position as a Naval Architect for shipbuilding company I am in charge of the ships repair, preparing schedules and communicating with other organizations. Also, I conduct business correspondence with companies and other departments. My advantage is attention to details and strong analytical thinking. I am also experienced in business trips.
Would you be so kind and give me an advice?
I sent my CV lots of companies and it is no result. Which companies can be interested in my person to hire?

What you need is an international company that has a branch in Ghana. The jobs available here would generally be in extractive industries and building so would concentrate on those. You might find a local company here but local salaries are not as good as working for an international company

Good day. Thank you so mach for your answer. If you have time would you be so kind to help me with some names of international companies? I've already found lots of Ghanaian companies and sent them my CV.
Thank you for your help and consideration.

Sorry! I have no real knowledge of international engineering firms. I'm sure Google will help.

I am asking you about it because we don't have an access to lots of foreign web-sites from Russian google search.

Ok. I understand. Hopefully someone else will have more information

Thank you once again for your help. I will do my best to find international companies by other way.
