Moving To Crete How To Find A Job

On this blog, I share with you some of the challenges you will face moving to Crete, and today we are going to talk about how to find a job. Most of the people who move to Crete from other countries, move here either because they have been posted here by the companies they work for, or they have moved here to retire.

When you are thinking about moving to Crete, there are some things you need to research when it comes to jobs. The easiest way for you to ensure that you have a job when you move to Crete is to discuss the issue with the company you work for and see if they can let you work remotely.

Or if your company does not have a remote position for you, then maybe look for a remote position with another company. The reason why I say this is that jobs are not easy to come by in Greece, and the opportunities that arise, they will be offered to the Greek citizens first before they can consider a foreigner.

Moving To Crete How To Find Tourism And Hospitality Jobs

That being said, there are seasonal Tourism, hospitality jobs that are available for people mainly those who are citizens of EU countries, so if hospitality is your thing, then you can apply for different positions in hotels, and tourist resorts. The only problem with those types of jobs, they are only available in the tourist season which begins in April and goes until mid to end of October.


So that means you will have to save your money because in the winter you will be jobless. May I also add that the hospitality jobs are for young people, most of them actually have an age limit. They mostly want people between the ages of 24 to 30 so if you are older than that, you probably won’t be accepted.

But maybe if you are applying for a management position, you might have a chance, if you have the required qualifications of course. The other jobs that might be available for someone who is moving to Crete are teaching jobs, especially English teachers. If you are a qualified teacher, you might find a job in local Schools.

There is also another website that you can register for and offer English lessons to people who want to learn English, there is no teaching degree required but you have to be a native English speaker, I tried to apply but they did not accept me because I am not a native English speaker. They seem to prefer people from the UK, Australia, US, and Canada.

So what you will need in order for you to register is a laptop or desktop, a stable internet connection, and a good microphone, so your job will be to just hold a casual conversation in English with someone who is learning English and teach them how to phrase and pronounce words properly, that’s it.

Other options, start your own business, if you visit the Greek website I mentioned when I talked about employment, there you will also find information on how to apply for a business permit and other documents that you will need in order for you to start a business here in Crete, and Greece in general.

  1. Hi! Aren’t there immigration requirements to move to Greece? Would you have details to share? Thanks

    1. If one is moving to Greece from an EU country, there are no complications. But moving to Greece from a non-EU country, then of course there are Immigration requirements.
