A new study reveals that the African oil & gas sector expects to see salary increases of over 10% across the continent in the next 12 months. Likewise, as oil & gas exploration across Africa continues to gain momentum the number of new job positions is set to rapidly increase.

A study carried out by Oliver Kinross Ltd the organisers of the Africa Oil & Gas Expo and Africa Oil & Gas Awards 2014 revealed today that job creation and wage increases were being driven by the increasing demand for skilled workers in Africa's booming oil & gas sector with East Africa leading this new growth in the past 12 months.

Neil McKenzie, Managing Director of the Africa Oil & Gas Expo and Africa Oil & Gas Awards, said: "Our study has revealed that the job prospects in Africa's oil & gas sector are more positive than they have ever looked before with the number of new vacancies and average salaries increasing at a phenomenal rate. Many employers are concerned about the prospects of a skills shortage and so investment in the development of a new generation of highly skilled oil & gas workers is vital."

The Africa Oil & Gas Expo and Africa Oil & Gas Awards are taking place in the world-leading Sandton Convention Centre on October 9th & 10th. The Expo is free to attend and is attended by large delegations of African Ministries of Energy and oil & gas operators. Included within the Exhibition is a free Recruitment Zone. The Awards ceremony taking place after the Expo is Africa's leading Oil & Gas awards ceremony and will be rewarding achievements in the industry.
