Why hire talents from Rwanda

Rwanda presents a highly attractive destination for international organizations looking to hire top talent. The country boasts a remarkable literacy rate of 73.2% (as of 2021), according to the UNESCO Institute for Statistics. This impressive literacy rate reflects the strong emphasis on education and the development of a skilled workforce in Rwanda, making it an ideal location for sourcing highly qualified and motivated professionals.

Hiring from Rwanda offers several advantages for global businesses. The Rwandan workforce is known for its strong work ethic, language proficiency (including fluency in English, French, and Kinyarwanda), and adaptability to diverse work environments. 

Rwanda has a young and growing population, which ensures a continuous pipeline of emerging talent, capable of driving innovation and growth for organizations across various sectors. By tapping into the Rwandan talent pool, your organization will benefit from a highly skilled and dedicated workforce, ready to contribute to your success in the dynamic Rwandan market.

Sourcing talents from Rwanda

Global companies seeking to scout and source exceptional talents in Rwanda have several options to explore. Traditional recruitment channels such as local job boards, employment agencies, and professional networks can offer a starting point for discovering the right candidates.

Employment laws and regulations in Rwanda

When hiring in Rwanda, it is essential to be aware of the employment laws and regulations governing the local labor market. In Rwanda, employment contracts are typically drafted in Kinyarwanda, French, or English, based on the preference of the parties involved. Ensuring that your employment contracts adhere to local best practices is crucial for a successful and compliant recruitment process.

Employee probation periods in Rwanda are permissible for up to six months. This allows employers to assess new hires’ performance and suitability for the role before confirming their employment.

Rwanda follows a 45-hour work week, with overtime calculated for hours exceeding the weekly legal working hours (45 hours) or contractual working hours (if agreed as less than 45 hours per week). Overtime premium pay is based on the employee’s basic salary, excluding allowances and other benefits. The modalities for extra hours and the rate of remuneration for overtime are determined under a collective labor convention, which must be revised annually.

By partnering with Breedj, you can be assured that your recruitment process complies with Rwandan employment laws and regulations. Our team of experts ensures that the hiring process is in line with local requirements, providing you with peace of mind as you build your team in Rwanda.

Employment termination in Rwanda

Understanding the policies surrounding employment termination in Rwanda is crucial for maintaining compliance and fostering a positive work environment. Indefinite term contracts may be terminated for just cause, and written notice should be given to the employee, except if dismissal is due to serious misconduct.

The notice requirements for termination are as follows:

  • Less than one year of service: 15 days’ notice
  • Greater than one year of service: one-month notice


Employees are generally entitled to severance pay after completing one year of service. 

Severance pay is awarded according to the following guidelines:

  • Less than five years of service: one month’s salary
  • Five to 10 years of service: two months’ salary
  • 10-15 years’ service: three months’ salary
  • 15-20 years’ service: four months’ salary
  • 20-25 years’ service: five months’ salary
  • 25+ years’ service: six months’ salary
