Jobs in Tunis for English Speaker?


I moved to Tunis around 2 months ago with my Tunisian wife, I did the convert to Islam and are now in the process of getting our marraige legal here. But run into a brick wall with the work situation here, I came to Tunisia to start a cafe but seems I wont be able to do that for a while now so I am looking for work. I know about the English call centres here but I cant find them anywere! I called alot of companys but they dont speak English or do English call centre work. Can anyone help me out? I know the money is bad for these jobs but its only a temp job anyhow so I can deal with it. Any help would be great.

Thank you.

It's very hard to find a job in Tunisia when you are foreign. I moved here last year thinking I could find a job and I got several interviews, when it was the moment to get a contract, all employers backed up...until one explained me the law of Tunisia to hire foreign labor: … Ct1200.htm
Since you're British, you can get more chances to be able to teach EFL at the British Council. Just get a TEFL certificate... the problem with the call centers, is to find one that is willing to pay you under the table (without the social benefits). You can find a job if your education is good and there aren't qualified Tunisians applying for the same position. I know how hard it is to find a job in here, so I wish you good luck! I am working on applications to leave Tunisia since here the job situation for us (expatriates)is harder than I thought.

As you're married to a Tunisian woman, cannot you ask for Tunisian would be then really easier for you to get a job

i think it's difficult to find a job at this moment!!!!it's even difficult for us as tunisians!!!!!!me too i'm a teacher of English speciality international relations!i 'm looking for a work too!!!!i ask u something why u don't do a small project as a  restaurant or something else in tourist to your tunisian wife and ask here to help you for example to get the tunisian nationality maybe it's easy for you to integrate in tunisian society.

I need a private arabic or french tutor.

Hi wafa22,

Welcome to expat-blog!

Please feel free to post an advert in the Job in Tunis section, this might help.

Thank you,


Hi, just noticed your post. Are you still interested in teaching Arabic at first and then French. I am back and forth to Tunisia all the time and have an apartment in Nabeul. I would be delighted to hear from you.
Thank you,

it's no so difficult as it is discribed above!! you're married with tunisian women so things would be easier for you than the others..if you're good you will find a job if you aren't you won't.. english language is requested in tunisia  as we have'nt got so much of those who speak it fluently..but i think for more chance , frensh language can be also a very big advantage beside  english one for sure ..just make an announce in the most popular newspaper and you will see...( excuse my bad english)

amal souid/ are you a professional translator or simply an amateur one  and i would like to know also if you don't mind whether you are an interpreter or a translator?
