Thats fine deks, that is a very useful site for jobseekers.
Not in Cyprus yet winding things up in UK hope to be over there bye begining of March April latest? where would be the best place to go and start looking ???You have to go looking for jobs like this. There is no substitute for walking round, knocing on doors, making yourself known in the area you want to work. Don't forget to try the hotels as well. Also, try looking in the papers.
Where in Cyprus are you?
Have you decided where you want to live? That will have the greatest impact on where you look for work. I see Veronica has also given you the link to the Eures site.Not in Cyprus yet winding things up in UK hope to be over there bye begining of March April latest? where would be the best place to go and start looking ???
Dears Babs. Thanks for the info was thinking larnaca or possibly ayia napa as i think that will be were the work is, come the season i don't speak any Greek and i think my best chance would be to find some bar or PR work for one of the clubs/pubs get my foot in the door and its easier to find out the score for the rest of the year? Were would be the best place to start? and what is the general cost for accommodation?Have you decided where you want to live? That will have the greatest impact on where you look for work.

Like I say, it will not be easy as so many people are out of work at the moment and the tourist season doesn't really start until Easter. You should also be aware that there are a lot of Eastern Europeans looking for work and they are prepared to work for almost nothing. So don't expect UK wages. It will help if you have started to learn Greek and you can offer another European Language in addition to English.
Unemployment in Cyprus is currently at its highest since 1974 - there are few jobs around and the forecast for a decent tourist season is very poor. Propects are therefore very gloomy for the job hunter at the moment. The casual labour market has also changed significantly since Cyprus joined the EU as mobility directives mean that the labour market has been open to those from new member states and applicant states within the former eastern bloc countries. People from these sates are prepared to take very low wages as they are still significantly higher than they could expect in their home country. For expats from the UK this is grim news as they simply can't compete as they would regard many of the salaries to be below subsistance. It is OK if you can get work and simply want a bit of an adventure, but for those wishing to start a new life (especially those with dependents) the jobs scene for casual, unskilled work in Cyprus is not good.Can you tell me what sort of jobs are in short supply if any in Cyprus
