How To Find a Job in Angola as a Foreigner

Virei, Angola

Virei, Angola

Angola is a country in the southern part of Africa on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean. The capital is Luanda, and the official language is Portuguese.

Know that if you are searching for opportunities in Angola as a foreigner, a lot revolves around the oil and gas industry. If you are interested in that space, go directly to the websites of companies such as ExxonMobil, BP, Chevron, Total, and do a search.

I also recommend you try out the sites below, whether you are interested in a job in oil and gas or another field.

General Job Search Engines and Classifieds

With the sites below, you can expect to get a 0.5 to 1.0% response rate (people who will respond back to you to whom you sent your application/CV.) Nevertheless, I encourage you to give these sites a try as you never know what you will come up with or what connections you can make from a simple e-mail or application.

  • Rig Zone: Rig Zone has job opportunities that are specifically tailored for the oil and gas industry.
  • Bayt: Bayt is a robust job search engine that is popular in other countries in this part of the world. You will see Angola jobs on there from time to time.
  • Career Jet UK: The UK version of the site Careerjet.com has Angola job postings quite often.
  • Oil and Gas Jobs: The name of the site says it all.
  • Sapo: I like the interface of this Portuguese-language based job search site.

Teaching English

Teaching English will be an option (if you are a native English speaker that is). All of the sites below are pretty similar and have a massive amount of teaching English job options. Browse through each of the sites for any Angolan job opportunities. Also, be sure to check out this cool table from the International TEFL academy that shows how much money teachers can expect to make in various countries around the world.

  • ESL Employment: Not the most beautiful interface, but who needs a pretty website when you have so many English teaching job options to choose from.
  • Total ESL: Also an overly busy interface but a wealth of job postings for teaching jobs abroad.
  • ESL Cafe: Dave does a great job in compiling some of the best job openings from around the world.
  • Tesall: Big teaching jobs aggregator.

Overseas and Expat Job Portals

  • Michael PageAn international executive recruitment website that I’ve used in the past. This site is targeted towards high-end job seekers. I like their post on “How to Expatriate to Angola.”
  • Go Abroad: I’ve always been a fan of GoAbroad. In fact, on the visa information portion of my website, you will find where I have linked to their global embassies directory. They have a good job portal too.
  • Linkedin: Last but not least, this huge professional social network is a resource for building contacts in the field and location of your interest.

There you have it. The best places to find jobs in Angola as a foreigner. For information on visas for Angola, be sure to check out my Angola visa page. If you are single and are looking to spice up your dating life, check out my reviews of the best dating sites in Africa.
