Hi welcome to the forum.
Jobs of any sort are in very short supply at the moment and most of the better retail jobs such as managment ect are taken by Cypriots as it is more a matter of who you know rather than what you know. The more junior jobs such as shop assistants etc are largely taken by eastern europeans who will work pretty much for peanuts.
I am not saying it is impossible to find work here, just very difficult at this present time.
