Working in Tunisia


New Member
Hello everybody! =)

My name is Maria. I'm 23 years old. Russian.
Is it possible to find a nice job in Tunisia (especially in Hammamet)?
I speak fluent English and a bit French, have a university degree.

Points of interest: teaching English/organizing special events (event-management)/working with tourists

Could you help or advise me on finding a job in this lovely region? =)

Thanks in advance,

Teaching Russian may seem a good idea ...

What's your degree ?

Hammamet is fabulous !


New Member
I know that Hammamet is fabulous!
I was there last year and fell in love with this region! :)))

I've got a Specialist's degree in linguistics and intercultural communication.

Now I'm working as an event manager.

Guys! I'm dying to work in Hammamet!

Is it so difficult to find a job in Tunisia for a nice, smart, talented girl (e.g. me)? :)

Please, help!

It is very difficult 4 us 2 find work in Tunisia as they reckon if a job needs doing it shud b filled by a Tunisian...


Staff member
Which is fair enough when the largest issue facing Tunisia is unemployment.

If the job can be done by a Tunisian then no dice, if not or creating jobs welcome in as it should be.

If your married to a Tunisian or you have a skill that is in demand you can find a way round this.

I would speak to your Tunisian embassy in Russia to find out what options there are.

maria, alot of the larger hotel chains employ a Russian in the animation team due to the large number of Russians that visit Tunisia. Might be worth looking at these directly but as the others have said it can be difficultenough for Tunisians finding jobs, never mind people coming into the country to work.


Do tunisian's pay income tax on earnings?


New Member
Thanks to everybody for replies! :)

To Feefad: Working in the tourist area (helping tourists) is interesting and useful, I guess, but animation doesn't seem attractive...Maybe, I'm wrong...

To Selz: Have you already tried working in Tunisia?

To Kris: I'm looking forward to receiving information from you!
Maybe, there will be some options suitable for me... It would be so wonderful! :)

Anyway, I'm gonna come to Hammamet in the beginning of October and I can try to find something right there if I don't find something in advance.

I'll be really grateful for any help and advice!

hey Maria, yeah I know exactly what you mean about the animation thing, it wouldnt be for me either. I have also noticed a number of Russians working in reception at the larger hotels so again might be worth a try? Not sure what sort of opportunities would be around off peak tho when the hotels are traditionally quieter.

To Selz: I'm planning to come to Tunisia in the beginning of October to have fun, to meet friends and to look what kind of job I can have there.

To Kymbers: The same stuff here in Saint-Petersburg (Russia), I'm tired of this permanent grey sky and 5-days-in-a-year sun...:(
