10 most paying careers in kenya

  1. Medicine
    This used to be the preserve of
    bright students but nowadays an
    average person with the will ,
    resources and determination to last
    the entire course can give it a try .
    The pay in most cases is decent for
    medical doctors and finding
    employment after graduation is
    comparatively easier. On the
    downside though , you will have to
    content with long working hours and
    odd emergency calls. Moreover, the
    entry salary for a medical intern may
    be as low as Ksh 45 ,000 but with
    progression in the career ,
    possibilities of hitting more than ten
    times that amount are high.

    their own and depending on the
    organization you work for or volume
    of revenue the firm makes, the pay
    can be impressive . For those with a

    Africa has a well-grounded culture
    that regards politics as one of the
    fastest avenues to riches . Count
    Members of Parliament , Governors ,
    Senators and Members of the County
    Assembly in this list .
    But politicians are not the only
    beneficiaries anymore ; political
    activists, analysts, scholars ,
    commentators , advisors and writers
    are some of the latest class of
    workers to make a career out of
    And media houses too bring these
    people on board and rake in massive
    viewership in return. Mutahi Ngunyi ,
    Makau Mutua, Adams Oloo , and
    Benji Ndolo are some of the
    prominent names in this field
    besides research companies such as
    Ipsos -Synovate and Infotrack Harris .

    organizations and analysts earn is
    not known but their popularity on
    TV stations is suggestive of their
  4. Marketing
    The field can be pretty
    unpredictable but established
    marketers make a fortune out of
    their careers . As the men and
    women in entrusted with a
    company ’s brand, sales and market
    share, the growth of the company
    image can translate to high incomes
    and commissions for these
    Marketers can earn as much as their
    sales can stretch with some in the
    leading banks and insurance
    companies are known millionaires .
  5. NGO and Civil Societies
    Non-governmental organizations offer
    some of the most competitive
    salaries in the job market .
    Depending on the budgets , often
    from donor funding , salaries can
    traverse in the range of six figures .
    Graduates of Law and Social Sciences
    are the most likely ones to land in
    this field .
    According to the Kenya National
    Bureau of Statistics, 2013 Economic
    Survey, the average monthly pay for
    an employee in NGO’s was Sh194 ,
    000 last year, the highest amount in

    That’ s just the average .

    include the United Nations and its
    affiliate bodies such as UNEP and
    UNHCR . Other known NGOs include:
    USAID and Oxfam .
  6. Information Technology
    The field has broadened with
    technological advances and newer
    careers are being invented with each
    passing day . More organizations too
    are finding the need for technology
    occupying core aspects of their
    operations hence the demand for
    professionals in IT disciplines .
    According to an IT expert , the cream
    of the profession in Kenya can earn
    over Ksh 500 ,000 a month.
  7. Lecturers
    The flexibility of their jobs makes the
    career path enviable and some can
    shuttle between some of the
    increasing number of universities
    with ease. However, you need to
    have the patience of studying long
    and hard beyond the graduate ,
    masters to PhD level in order to
    command a higher salary.
    Though teaching has traditionally
    been viewed as barren grounds for
    money, some top dons in
    universities earn close to Ksh
    500 ,000 per month. The field of
    study will also determine the
    demand and remuneration for your
  8. Media Presenters
    The field has been ‘infiltrated ’ as
    some media practitioners term it , by
    non-holders of communication
    qualifications but the truth is , this
    sector has become more of personal
    branding. Personalities with the
    ability to draw viewership or mass
    audiences have found a home in the
    media. These range from comedians ,
    talk shows hosts and star presenters .
    The earnings here are dictated by
    individual clout and some
    practitioners easily attract salaries
    similar to those of MPs. A female
    Citizen TV presenter has for a long
    while been said to earn to the tune
    of Ksh 800 ,000 while some popular
    stand up comedians also run shows
    that rake in colossal sums as well.
  9. Engineering
    With the country striving to catch up
    with the rest of the developed world,
    the need for engineers cannot be
    over-emphasized . It matters what
    engineering specialization one
    ventures into but new developments
    also play a part in how much you
    can earn . For example recent
    discoveries of oil might favour geo -
    spatial and energy engineers but
    massive infrastructural developments
    also work for the benefit of civil and
    structural engineers.
    Depending on the firm you are
    affiliated with , engineering is a
    lucrative career. Remember you also
    need to have your math and
    sciences right. Salaryexplorer .com
    pegs the income of a project
    engineer at Ksh 550 ,000 on the
    higher side although this figure is
    not fixed .
  10. Pilot / Aviation Industry
    Pilots are some of the best paid
    professionals not only in Kenya but
    the world over . Moreover, the high
    cost of training happens to be the
    only check that has stopped this
    career line from getting flooded.
    A Wall Street journal in March 2013
    reported that it takes Kenya Airways
    about Ksh 8. 5 million to train a
    pilot. The same source alleges that a
    captain makes up to Ksh 1 .1 million
    a month.
