Finding a job

How to find a job


The best way to find work before moving to Cyprus is through the EURES portal.

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, Welfare 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 +35722403000, Limassol +35725827320, Larnaca +35724805312, and Paphos +35726821666, or the local labour offices of Polis (Chrysochou) +35726821842, Ypsonas +35725826900, Lakatamia +35722443717, Free Famagusta Area +35723812052, Aradippou +35724813295, Latsia +35722815848 and Eastern Limassol +35725814914.

Cyprus has many private employment agencies. Some of them focus on finding jobs for workers from abroad. Some allow interested persons to register and submit their CVs on a dedicated webpage.

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 Web Portal 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 at

Lastly, making a personal approach to companies which may be on the lookout for personnel with particular specialisations can also be worthwhile.
