Working in South Africa, especially Cape Town as a French resident, you will feel like you have arrived at home away from home. French is widely spoken around South Africa. Not only by the descendants of early French settlers, but also by West African parking attendants who look after your car all over Cape Town.
French culture can be seen in Cape Town and the grander Western Cape region. This is not surprising, seeing the early settlers were of French origin.
Vineyards, tunnels, mountain passes and towns were named after French families coming to the Cape region for refuge from Louis XIV relentless prosecution of protestants.
Today the French culture is apparent everywhere in Cape Town and “Frenchies” coming to Cape Town don’t only enjoy French food, culture and humour, they also get to enjoy nine months of summer, a beautiful mountain in the backyard, a beach lifestyle and a relaxed “now-now” culture.
Yes of course, we do offer Contact Centre positions in the Tourism and Online Gaming sector for French speakers. Having worked as a Customer Service Agent at some stage in your life looks good in your job portfolio. It also proves to other potential employers in South Africa that you are people-oriented and friendly, which is important in any position in South Africa and overseas.
