Recognised as one of the world’s most spectacular places, the Western Cape has the sights and facilities to relax both tourists and workers alike. It has everything, from immaculate beaches, an abundance of floral life, a thriving wine industry, world-class restaurants and unique history and heritage that embedded in the hearts of the people.
At the heart of the Western Cape, lies Cape Town where tourists and locals alike are welcomed to marvel at the beauty of the flat-topped Table Top Mountain. This mountain is a huge side attraction for tourists who can’t get enough of how it is shaped.
Additionally, regions like Klein Kloo, nature reserves, and untamed wilderness areas are perfect for people who want to explore a different side of the province.
This province has what it takes to put its workers at ease and lets them relax after a hard day’s work. After work, locals take a voyage of the Table Top Mountain from a cable car, take long walks down on its beaches, taste some of the most exquisite dishes and drinks from its finest restaurant or bars.
However, what makes the Cape the perfect place to look for a job is not just its mountains, beaches, game reserves or restaurants. It is its economy and the boundless job opportunities it holds.
Western Cape contributes 14% of South Africa’s GDP. Its major sectors like finance, real estate, ICT, retail, tourism, and office services are the main contributors to the regional economy. Many banks and insurance agencies are already moving there to set up offices.
Agriculture and fishing is another major contributor to Western Cape’s economy. Matter of fact, agriculture contributes up to 60% of regional exports.
Wine as well contributes, 3.1% of the world’s wine is produced in the Western Cape. South Africa’s 300-year old wine industry is located at WC. The province has over 100-200 hectares of vine dedicated to wine production.
Growth sectors like construction, communication, ICT; smaller scale sectors like globalized call centres, foreign trade from seaports, and the film industry in the Western Cape’s Cape Town is part of what gives this province its good employment reputation and why workers love it so much.
If you are considering to work in the Western Cape, then go for it. It is one of the best salary paying provinces in South Africa, alongside the Northern Cape and Kwazulu Natal.
