Cyprus - National Level

Where are the available workers?


Those most willing to move to find work in Europe are young higher education graduates. In most cases these people do not have much work experience in their field of study. The most widespread foreign spoken language is English.


Those most willing to move are young men between 21 and 35 years of age. According to the Public Employment Service website, in February 2021, 1 315 unemployed persons have declared their desire to find work in Cyprus and in Europe. This percentage accounts for just 4% of the total number of registered unemployed persons, which reflects the fact that Cypriots are reluctant to relocate to a different country in order to work, but also that it is easy to find work in Cyprus.
