Having overcome a troublesome past, South Africa is now a melting pot of people from all backgrounds and a bustling hive of culture.
Before you start your search for jobs in South Africa make sure you do your research on appropriate working visas. South Africa doesn’t have a specific ‘working holiday’ visa therefore you are likely to have to apply for a standard working permit, which may take longer to apply for and process. Once you secure your visa however, your employment opportunities are fruitful.
Common jobs in South Africa include teaching, sport coaching and working as a ranger or a guide in a safari park! Most South Africans speak English however knowledge of isiZulu and Afrikaans would definitely give job applicants an advantage.
