How To Find a Job in the Faroe Islands as a Foreigner

Faroe Islands

Faroe Islands

The Faroe Islands fall under the sovereignty of Denmark and have one of the lowest unemployment rates in Scandinavia. So yeah, you can best believe that finding a job here will be pretty tough to near impossible.

If you are determined to get a job in Faroe Islands though, be sure to keep reading below for a selection of resources for searching for employment opportunities as a foreigner in the Faroe Islands.

General Job Search Engines and Classifieds

With the sites below, you can expect to get a 0.5 to 1.0% response rate (people who will respond back to you to whom you sent your application/CV.) Nevertheless, I encourage you to give these sites a try as you never know what you will come up with or what connections you can make from a simple e-mail or application.

  • Starv.fo: A good starting point for searching for jobs in the Faroe Islands.
  • Sosialurin.fo: Like the site above, this is another newspaper in the Faroe Islands that you can try.

Teaching English

Teaching English might be an option depending on if you can find available opportunities. All of the sites below are pretty similar and have a massive amount of teaching English job options worldwide. It is doubtful you will find a bunch of Faroe Islands opportunities though. Also, be sure to check out this cool table from the International TEFL academy that shows how much money teachers can expect to make in various countries around the world.

Thoughts of Other Bloggers and Websites

Overseas and Expat Job Portals

  • Overseas Jobs:  I find that there is often significant overlap between the postings on this site and that of other sites. Nevertheless this site has been around for a while.
  • Go Abroad: I’ve always been a fan of GoAbroad. In fact, on the visa information portion of my website, you will find where I have linked to their global embassies directory. They have a good job portal too.
  • Career Builder: These guys have been around a long time. A pretty good site to check out but not the best of the bunch.
  • Linkedin: Last but not least, this huge professional social network is a resource for building contacts in the field and location of your interest.

There you have it. The best places to find jobs in the Faroe Islands as a foreigner. For information on visas for the Faroe Islands, be sure to check out my Faroe Islands visa page.
