Hong Kong-owned Lishi Group, the biggest Chinese firm operating in Africa, is looking to
hire people from Taiwan to fill around 213 vacancies in their subsidiary operations in Nigeria and the Republic of Congo, including bakers, civil engineers, electricians, plumbers, mechanics and machinery repair technicians, according to our Chinese-language sister paper China Times.
The company is offering annual salaries of over NT$1 million (US$31,000) to tempt Taiwanese workers to try their luck in Africa, due in part to their reputation for hard graft and professionalism.
The company held interviews in Taiwan for posts in Africa on Aug. 10-11, attracting over 50 professionals to apply. The Taiwanese CEO of the company Yang Wen-yu came to conduct the interviews in person. [FULL STORY]
