moving to Lebanon

I am an English girl who is thinking to move to Lebanon very soon. I am concerned about finding work as I only speak English. I currently live in Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt and work in a hotel as customer service.
Can anyone give me information about life in Lebanon for English people and are there many jobs available?

I am greatful for any advice

Thank you

Hey Jen, I lived in Lebanon for 2 years. The vibe is great compared to other middle eastern countries. If your between 20 and 35, you should have a great time socializing. When it comes to working, i don't think Lebanon's economy is doing all that good, most people run their own businesses there. Let me know if i can be of further help :)

Hi thanks for that reply. As I am now living in Sharm el Sheikh, since the revolution it is hard to find work and I really want a new job. Hopefully I will be going to Lebanon in a month or so. I am 23 and from what I hear the life in Lebanon is very exciting. I am looking forward to goin their just worried about work. I am hoping my experience here could help me find a job in a hotel and maybe the French I learnt at school will come back to me :)


No worries if all you speak is English!

There are tons of places for you to find a job.

But first, why don't you come visit? I think it's usually a good idea to visit a place before moving there :p

Drop me a note if you are interested in visiting Lebanon.



I have tried searching the web for jobs in Beirut but not had much luck its good to know there is work available, maybe I will find more when I get there.

I will be moving to Lebanon with my boyfriend, he is Lebanese and all his family are there. We are hoping to move their and get married so I am doing my research first. Actually am very excited. Your country looks amazing.

Thanks for your help
