Finding a job

How to find a job


The best way to find work before moving to Cyprus is through the EURES portal. Of course, the great increase in the number of unemployed persons in Cyprus over recent years has made it much harder to find work from a distance.
If you are in Cyprus looking for work you can visit the district labour offices, which are attached to the Department of Labour of the Ministry of Labour and Social Insurance, in order to register, get information and guidance and even placement in a job. You will need to show your passport or identity card on the first visit. You cannot register as being unemployed if you are not a resident of Cyprus. To register as unemployed in search of work you can visit the district labour offices: Nicosia +357 22 403000, Limassol +357 25 827320, Larnaca +357 24 805312 and Paphos +357 26 821666 or the local labour offices in Chrysochus +357 26 821842, Ypsonas +357 25 826900, Lakatameia +357 22 443717, Aglantzia +357 22 874800, Famagusta +357 23 812052, Aradippou +357 24 813295, Agros +357 25 874074, Kakopetria, Aghios Georgios Road, Latsia +357 22 815848 and East Limassol +357 25814923.

Cyprus has many private employment agencies. Some specialise in finding work for people from abroad, and of those some allow registration and the filing of CVs in the relevant website.

You can also contact the Cyprus Human Resource Management Association for information about employment agencies, and also the Cyprus Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KEBE). Newspapers, which you can find by visiting the official website of the Republic of Cyprus, offer another good way of finding work. The Public Employment Service of the Department of Labour has an Internet system of registration for employment and for job searching through the EURES website. The website of EURES Cyprus has been upgraded and updated. It can now be found on    
Lastly, making a personal approach to companies which may be on the lookout for personnel with particular specialisations can also be worthwhile.
