American Architect moving to Johannesburg

New Topic Newest First

Hello,
I will be moving to Johannesburg in 2016. I am an American citizen currently working towards my architecture license and working at a firm in NYC. I plan to move to South Africa shortly after finishing my licensing here. Does anyone know an American architect (or someone in a similar field) working in SA that I could talk to?

I'm wondering how to go about looking for career opportunities. My multiple attempts at contacting SA architecture firms and the SA Institute of Architects have not received any responses.

Any help would be much appreciated! Thank you!!

Hi. I presume you have gone to the SAIA webpage - www.saia.org.za? Please remember that nowadays the SA Govt requires opportunities to be given to "previously disadvantaged citizens" so it may not be that easy. Good luck

Thanks for choosing Johannesburg and in the event you need housing and interested please let me know. I am a South African American and currently working in Atlanta. So if you need to visit SA before you actually move there, I dont mind helping and show you around. Used to be a New Yorker myself so Im sure you embrace diverty. Don't be swayed to thinking Cape Town is the only place you can live especially if you are white.

Welcome to Gauteng!
