With the UK withdrawing working holiday visas for South African job seekers, it is important to know that there are still many overseas and international job opportunities for hospitality, hotel and restaurant qualified candidates.
Many of the lodges in Africa are able to process work visas for South Africans, namely countries such as:
Botswana; Malawi; Mozambique; Uganda; Tanzania; Kenya; Nigeria; Swaziland; Sudan and Egypt.
When searching for lodge jobs in Africa, employers will more than likely require you to have a tertiary education in hotel management or a lodge qualification in order for them to process a work permit. Employers have to be able to prove that they cannot find local lodge staff to do the same job before employing South Africans. There are many South African colleges now offering specific lodge and game ranger courses which are well worth investing in. Many African countries also have a requirement that job seekers looking for management couple positions actually be married before being able to obtain work visas.
Whether your dream job is to become an Area Manager for a well-known hotel Brand, a 5* Lodge Manager, a Chef in a fine dining restaurant or a waitron for that gap-year to save up for your studies, Hospitality Jobs Africa Group offers the opportunity for job seekers to work throughout Africa and South Africa in the Restaurant, Hospitality, Lodge, Hotel and Chef industries.
