Timisoara, one of the major Romanian cities, is very open towards foreign expertise. It is, in fact, a continuously developing city, having benefited from interest and international investment over the years. Despite its rich historical heritage and traditional architecture, Timisoara is a modern city with all the amenities for work and life. However, it’s always a good idea to inquire about the specifics of local features and labour market requirements prior to starting your job hunt.

Economy

Timisoara is an important economic centre in Romania. It is, above all, a region that has massively attracted foreign investment over the years. In fact, Timisoara was recognised as the best city for investment in Romania in 2016 by the Forbes magazine. Thus, you will not miss the presence of major groups such as Continental AG which is involved in the manufacturing of tyres, Linde Group focusing on the production of technical gas, Kromberg & Schubert, which is a manufacturer of vehicle cables, and Volkswagen, a worldwide vehicle manufacturer, among many others. You will also find many US firms such as Flextronics, which manufactures mobile phones and Procter & Gamble, which produces detergents, personal care and hygienic products. Today, foreign investment is primarily centred in high-tech sectors.

Labour market

Given the strong presence of industries across the city, Timisoara mainly provides engineering and technical jobs. Vacancies are also available in the fields of tourism and hospitality thanks to the presence of many hotels and the rapid development of B&R industry. However, bear in mind that salaries offered by these fields may not be as attractive as you would expect.

On the other hand, Business Process Outsourcing (the practice of subcontracting business operations to third-party vendors) has been growing in popularity in the city and offers promising employment opportunities.

Find a job

There are various ways to search for a job in Timisoara. You can start by browsing job offers on the Internet and make use of several general and specialised job websites, as well as professional social networks where you can communicate with potential employers in English.

If you are still having trouble finding the right position, there is always the option of contacting a headhunting agency in the city to help you look for the most suitable position.

 Good to know:

Just like in other cities in Romania, it’s best if you have a good knowledge and understanding of the Romanian language. Given the fields in which most job opportunities are available, these are very likely to be influenced professionally by the local culture and language.

Like most major Romanian cities, Timisoara also has a Departmental Employment Agency which can guide and advise you during your job search. Moreover, the National Employment Agency also regularly advertises job vacancies that are available in the cities like in the rest of the country.
