Jobs in Greece

Look here for listings from major newspapers and other sources for all kinds of jobs in Greece. You'll find companies offering part-time, long-term, and temporary positions, plus my tips on how to find work in Greece.

Note: with the poor economic situation in Greece, job offer scams have increased. Don't ever send money in order to process a job application or get paperwork to work in Greece - legitimate Greek employers will never ask for this. However, they will routinely ask you your age and to send a photo - practices which are perfectly legal in Greece and most of the EU, but a surprise for applicants from the United States and elsewhere.
