Is it really that hard to find work in CPT?! (Cape Town)

Hello all,

My husband is from CPT originally although we live in the UK at present. We are looking at the possibility of relocation to CPT and are in the early stages of research - any advice that you can give us would be greatly appreciated.

So I would require a spousal visa until we've been married for five years, which is fine. However, I've heard that it's not easy to find work and this can only be made more difficult by the fact that I'll need to find an employer that's willing to offer me a job and then wait a minimum of 8 weeks for the work endorsement to be added to my visa.

This seems really frustrating - has anyone else got experience of this?

And how hard is it really to find a job? I hear that jobs are like gold dust, especially with the AA/EE, but is this just an exaggeration?

Advice and stories would be appreciated!

Thanks in advance :)
