Cost of human resources: Tunisia has the lowest prices among 9 countries

Tunisia has the lowest annual net costs of human resources compared to a sample of 8 countries, namely Romania, Bulgaria, Morocco, Italy, Spain, UK, France and Germany, this is what emerges from a report on “Factor Costs in Tunisia 2024” published at the beginning of the year by FIPA.

The report is based on a comparison between the annual net costs of certain profiles in Tunisia (IT support analyst, Electronics engineer, Business development director, R&D team leader, Robotics engineer, Production operator) and their costs in the component countries the sample. This document thus describes competitiveness based on the low costs of these categories of workers.

For an IT support analyst who provides front-line support, handles the help desk, trains users and also installs IT systems, Tunisia has the lowest annual net costs and are around of €6,587 (€1 = 3.38 Tunisian dinar). The report thus estimates that this category of workers in Tunisia is 76% more “competitive” than the sample average which is around €26,966 per year.

The electronic engineer designs, develops and tests electronic components, devices, systems or equipment of all kinds. He may specialize in at least one of the areas of control engineering, instrumentation, signal processing and/or telecommunications engineering. For this category too, Tunisia has the lowest annual net costs in the sample with €15,153. According to the report, this category of workers in Tunisia is thus 67% more “competitive” than the sample average which is around €46,117 per year.

Tunisia also has the lowest annual net costs (€13,842) for the category of business development directors, whose mission is to identify and develop new and existing reference sources to develop relationships and multiply business opportunities and who are also responsible for maintaining working relationships with existing clients in order to guarantee their retention. This category of workers in Tunisia is 67% more “competitive” than the sample average which is around €42,779 per year.

Tunisia is also at the bottom of the scale for the category of R&D team leaders. The R&D team leader is in fact responsible for the development and improvement of products or new systems. He leads a team on a project or part of a research project of medium complexity. With annual net costs of around €16,854, this category is 66% more “competitive” than the sample average which is around €49,950 per year.

Tunisian robotics engineers are also the least paid compared to their counterparts in the sample countries. The robotics engineer is responsible for designing, testing and building robots. They use computer-aided design and drafting and computer-aided manufacturing (CADD/CAM) systems to perform their tasks. It determines the particular needs of each application and personalizes the robot. He also plans the computer programs suitable for installing the robot. With annual net costs of €17,196, this category of workers in Tunisia is 66% more “competitive” than the sample average (€51,091 per year).

For an “average” qualification such as that of a production operator, Tunisia also comes last with net costs of €5,843. This category in Tunisia is thus 77% more competitive than the sample average which is around €26,408 per year.
