Establishing operations on the African continent as part of an international corporations expansion strategy entails complex staffing decisions that need to ensure compliance with local legal and regulatory requirements. These range from the requirement to recruit a minimum percentage of local staff to ensuring that expatriate staff applying for work permits are supported by local understudies and undertake mandatory training of these during the validity of their permit.

We support our international Clients with applications for the correct category of pass or permit for their key personnel and dependents where applicable and ensure continued support throughout the validity of their permits or renewal process.

Finally, we assist our Clients’ HR teams with the structuring of executive remuneration as well as the preparation of Employment Contracts, Executive Contracts and Secondment Agreements that comply with local law.
