Located in the Southeast of France, Nice is a very popular expat destination in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region. Its inhabitants are lucky to live close to Italy which is accessible by car through the Mont Blanc tunnel.

Besides the sea and mountains, Nice also has a dynamic economy which is mainly driven by tourism and trade. Indeed, Nice is the 5th biggest French city. It is also the second most dynamic zone of the PACA region.

The labor market mainly revolves around services and tourism which are the most fruitful fields in the area. Nice can thus boast about its need of manpower, especially in fields such as seasonal tourism, information and communication technology, health care and personal services.

  • services (recruitment of 1 on 10)
