Finding a job in Czech Republic and Central Europe

Hi everybody,

I would be happy to help people who want to relocate to Czech rep, Slovakia, Poland or Hungary as I work for a recruitment agency in Brno. I can give you tips or information regarding the working conditions and cost of life in the above listed countries. If you want to send me your CV, I will review it and let you know if we have any suitable positions for you. Do not forget to mention what type of position you are looking for!

Best Regards

Hi Samuel,

maybe you could post a couple of articles regarding jobs in Czech Republic in the participative guide ? It would help a lot of people ;)

thank u, im living in prague and wait for my papers to live here,and then i will start to work here, i wish that someone can help me to find work :)

Hello Praha26 :)

Maybe it would help if you could give more details i.e in which sector you are seeking, what are your qualifications etc.

This will help members to provide you with more specific information.

All the best.


hey Samuel,
I'm a recant college graduate looking to teaching English somewhere in europe! i am a native english speaker with a TESOL / TESL / TEFL Certification. any tips on which countries i should look into and how i would actualy go about getting a teaching job?  also maybe there are jobs other then teaching i should look into???  i should also note im a non-EU citizen.



Hi Dennis,

To be honest with you I am not sure about which country would be the best as I am quite sure you could find a job in any EU country and teach english but it depends on:

- What visa you will get
- Your budget
- What interests you meaning some countries have a pretty interesting culture but the money isn't as good as elsewhere so you have to define your priorities first. Get experience and discover other ways of life or make good money?
- What country or culture attracts you the most
- If you already have contacts in one EU country it could be good to ask them for their opinion (are they many language shools, are the working conditions good, etc...)

Personally, I can help if you move to CEE meaning CZ, SK, HU, or PL but everything depends on your background as if you have no experience and only the english language I don't think I can find you a job here. Most of the locals speak english + their native language and sometimes 1 or 2 other languages so unless you have some valuable knowledge or experience I personnaly cannot help. I doesn't mean you can't find a job here just that I cannot find you a job ;)

I am sure that blogs of websites of expats or travellers will give you lots of tips and your may start in one country and end up in another one.

Anyway good luck to you.

I think the first thing to sort out is your visa. Do you have dual citizenship or are you married to a Czech girl either way it might be hard for you to get a job here.

You could possibly get a temporary residence visa but most of employers prefer candidates with permanent residence visas so try to sort this out first.

Now regarding jobs for a civil engineer in Prague, everything depends on your experience so you can send me your CV to [email protected] and I will look into it and let you know if I've got something for you. However, please keep in mind that if you don't have permanent residence in CZ or EU passport I cannot help you.




Regarding work permits, as far as I know if you are married to a CZ citizen, you are entitled to work in CZ even without permanent visa. Get in touch with the immigration office for foreigners in Prague so that they confirm everything and make sure you have all necessary docs for employers.

Your experience isn't too short for being 22 years old as people here tend to study for many years so I'd say you have fair chances to find something but it depends on how flexible you are. Meaning that more and more people have to move where the job is and looking for a job in only one place is a bit risky so keep in mind that Praha, Brno, Ostrava, Plzen are potential working places and keep all doors opened.

You can definitely keep my email address and send me an email with your up to date CV whenever you are ready for relocating with all due papers in hand!

I believe starting to look for a job a month in advance is enough but it is better to be here for face to face interviews with employers. What we can do is 1 month before you arrie, send me an email with your phone number and we'll discuss about jobs we have at this moment. I can also provide you with basic info about CZ, opening a bank account here, flat rental's websites, etc..

Wishing you all the best for this big move.

Kind regards

If you are an expat, you can try a couple of webs that helped me out in my arrival. The first one is more focused on spanish speakers( as im spanish), its name is acentos de praga( other one is

Hi, Samuel. Do you know the specifics of work in Czech Republic for international students?

I am from Ukraine. Studying at Charles University and am looking for a summer job or something like that.

I am also interested in part-time jobs during my studies, but I don't know the regulation of these matters. I tried searching for what my rights (number of hours, work permit requirements etc) are as a students but all futile.

Thanks for any info.

Hello Samuel,

Myself and my girlfriend are currently looking to move to central europe (preferably Prague) in the near future and we were just wondering on the best way to find work in Prague? Do you recommend gaining our working visas, and then moving to Prague to find work, or trying to find work before moving to Prague? We are both educated professionals (both with Bachelor Degrees in Business, Marketing, etc) and I have over 5 years sales/marketing/management experience currently working in sales for a software company here in Vancouver, BC Canada. She is a registered Property Manager in real estate here in Vancouver, BC Canada as well. We both only speak English.

Any advice you have on how to go about this job search and the most effective process in gaining employment and moving to Prague, would be greatly appreciated. It has been a lifelong goal of mine to not just travel to Europe, but to live and work there and experience the different cultures as well. Hope to speak with you soon and have a great day Samuel. :)


Hello Samuel

I'm interested in a work holiday that is offered to Canadians wishing to live in the Czech Republic for a year.  My experience is extensive in the hospitality and tourism industries.  I'm curious if you know of a good web site to find jobs in this sector for someone in my position?
