Employment opportunities abound in the many multinationals that have offices in the country; some examples include Barclays, Pricewaterhousecoopers, Shell, Henkel and many others. Challenges in Uganda include expansion of the coffee sector, urban development and infrastructure and can easily be useful and exciting for expats seeking to build a performance oriented reputation.
The country’s growing economy often has opportunities for entry positions into senior positions finance, agro-technology, telecommunications, petroleum processing and manufacturing owing to technological and advanced process technology from the western world.

Further information for interested job seekers from East Africa can be found from the East African Community Secretariat.
