Looking for the perfect vacancy in France?

Ah, France. The land of wine, cheese and champagne. But France also has a lot to offer in the area of employment. Are you looking for the job of your dreams and do you not mind moving to the warm south? Discover here all the advantages and disadvantages of working in France, career opportunities and the most popular cities to live!

Working in France: What are the benefits?

The main advantage of a job in France is undoubtedly the climate. Contrary to what is often thought, the working climate in France is no different from that in other countries in Western Europe. In fact, in France the workload is generally slightly higher and there are on average more hours worked per week.

With more than 66 million inhabitants, however, the country also has a lot more to offer in terms of employment. France is also known for its strong economy, and although the recession was felt in France, it has experienced relative economic growth.

It is important to bear in mind, however, that working in France often entails the need to have a sufficient command of language skills.

What are the disadvantages of a job in France?

The beautiful climate and the tasty French cuisine are enough reason for many to pack the suitcases and go south. However, you have to take into account that language proficiency is a requirement. In addition, the work pressure and long hours may well be disappointing.

Job vacancies in France

France is a large country, with a wider choice of living and working areas.

Perhaps the most obvious city to live and work in is Paris. Don’t forget, however, because the cost of living is much higher in Paris than in most other countries.

The French themselves also have a different opinion on this. Paris is not the most popular city to work in. The largest employment is found in the southwest of the country, particularly in Bordeaux. Lyon also scored well, as did Aix-en-Provence and Marseille. So if you think of working in France, then you should also go looking for vacancies in the southwest of the country.
A visa for France?

As France is part of the European Union, citizens of the Union do not need a visa to live or work here. If you have a passport from a country outside the EU, a visa is often required. You can find more information about this at the French embassy.

What are the experiences of other expats in France?

Paris France – I am Bas (27 years old) and ended up on this website at the end of 2009. I wanted to work abroad. Via the website I searched for a job, applied to one of the employers and then I was immediately invited to a telephone interview. My dream was a foreign job, regardless of country! A big advantage of this site was that I could now choose for myself which country I want to work in abroad.

Aix en Provence, France – Dagmar: From an early age I had a dream to go and work in France later. In the year 2000 I started my French training. After that, I steered commercial economy. With this luggage you can go many ways when you are looking for a job in France. In recent years I have had a very nice job in France. But I wanted something else. As a result, I ended up on Search Jobs Abroad. This really had a huge number of jobs in France. At the moment I live in Aix en Provence (where I also went on an internship) and have a nice job in France at a large language institute.

Lyon, France – France – Jelke: In the beginning, I had to think about it for a long time, but a job in France seemed to be the one I had written most of my body because I was studying in France during my studies. Via a search engine I came to Search Jobs Abroad. Finding a job in France was very easy and went very fast. I myself made contact with employers who offered jobs in France and they also had the opportunity to contact people looking for a job in France. After 2 months I had several conversations in which I made a choice after two selection rounds. That is why I would like to thank you for the existence of this website.
