    50k to work in Nigeria isn't going to get any top quality people, triple it and you might be taken seriously.

    50K we made more than that in Nigeria in the 80s as a simple navvy, it costs at least that in "DASH" alone to work there. google Dash
     
  5. As an expat civil and environmental engineer I suggest that unless the salary is 50k Krugerrands you are unlikely to find anybody competent. Unless you are also offering an offshore per diem of around $300 and other benefits.

    You might be better off looking for a South African construction manager if your budget is limited.

    Indeed, but 50k to work in a shit hole like Nigeria does not even come close.
