What i've been reading here is, to my understanding, spot on but only for companies which are requiring people to work on site, not remote, right?

Once you are remote and are living not in the same country as where the company is based, there is basically no difference betwen you and another person outside of EU

I.e. work happens as an external contractor and it's the problem of the contractor to figure out their own local regulation. Sometimes companies pay a little extra (they save some money by not hiring people, and they have the upside that getting rid of a contractor is much easier)

In practice, @afolanyaaminu, you should just write to the companies themselves. If it's for remote work, i suspect that your location wouldn't be much of a difference if you're in EU or in Ghana

but be aware that when it's time to get paid, the companies probably wouldn't want the hassle to figure out how to pay you, so they might expect you to use something like Transferwise and pay you in $, € (or GBP, but now i don't know with brexit)

I see transferwise works with Ghana, so you probably won't have troubles

On-site vs off-site has nothing to do with it. You can be an off-site employee or an on-site contractor. It's employee vs contractor that matters.

Oh no 😲 That would change my focus from being productive to appearing productive. Which would make me miserable and very likely to quit.
