Jobs in the Paphos district are mainly seasonal tourism based positions - working in hotels bars cafes restaurants shops kiosks etc there is also a requirement for cleaning of private & short let villas apartments etc also hire car delivery drivers.....

Its difficult for any new arrival to break in to the more skilled trades fields such as plumbers electricians joiners etc  its even more difficult for people with HGV experience as many companies already employ and stick to local workforce sources

It can be difficult to get a job here initially and can take between 3-6 months to secure a good decent paid job, but wages are low in comparison to your own homeland in most cases... so best advice for anyone contemplating a move be sure to have at least 6 months cash behind you to cover all living and day to day expenses without having to work it makes the transition much easier and gives you breathing space to secure a job without being pressured

also remember working in the summer months with temperatures in excess of 30-35 degrees is not easy even for those who are used to it

Good luck to all
