Finding a Job in the Czech Republic

Since such corporate monsters like HP, ExxonMobil and Amazon opened their offices in Czech Republic, it became a very lucrative location for job hunters. It’s common for the employees to move offices within one company, as well as for people search for jobs without being attached to one particular country. What’s the situation on Czech jobs market? Is it worth relocating to Czech Republic to find a better job? Let’s take a closer look!

Chances of getting a job

 Before making the final step and actually making a move to live abroad, you’d better evaluate all pros and cons of the idea. What will be your chances of getting a job in Czech Republic? As long as you speak English, your chances will be hard to beat! While Czech language is still an important requirement among local companies, many international enterprises treat English as their corporate language. Same applies for tourist field, where Czech isn’t necessary at all.

What about the paperwork?

In case you are a EU citizen, you’ll share the same rights as Czech citizens. Therefore, you won’t need any work permit. Just sign a contract with your new employer and roll into a new role. For non-EU citizens a special Employee card should be issued, which is a matter of some time, but it’s completely achievable and shouldn’t prevent you from getting your dream job. Be sure to take a look at our Immigration process article, where we talk in details about the administration and work permits.

Major fields

It’s not so easy to provide any statistics on which are the perfect fields for foreign employees in Czech Republic, however here are some major ones:

  • IT / electronics
  • Automotive industry
  • Financial and banking services
  • Tourism
  • Construction and engineering
  • Leisure and lifestyle

Don’t get upset if you haven’t found your particular specialty on this list. As mentioned above, it’s hard to give any forecast on what jobs will be on demand next.
