Hi Julien,

I was head hunted to South Africa two years ago. I am in the Engineering industry (rail). And moving to a different company in the next week, also in the engineering sector.

I believe if you have the right set of skills they are looking for in the Engineering sector more expats will definetely be hired. Seems like there are not enough South Africans interested in this sector.

That's my experience.

@Silvana_Arocha - thank you for the sharing of information :)

Hi Julien,

The biggest space in Johannesburg for recruitment is IT Industry - far too many senior roles with no Skills in Johannesburg.

Hope this helps.

Kind Regards,
