How To Find a Job in Seychelles as a Foreigner



Seychelles is a country located in the Indian Ocean. The official languages are French, English, and Seychellois Creole. The largest city in Seychelles and the one with the most jobs is Victoria.

If you’re searching for jobs in Seychelles, just know that you will need to get a Gainful Occupation Permit either through an employer or as a self-employed person.

Below is a selection of resources for searching for employment opportunities as a foreigner in the Seychelles.

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.

  • Career Jet: I’m sure you’ve heard of Career Jet. They have job search options for the Seychelles.
  • Glassdoor: Glassdoor has a bunch of work opportunities in Seychelles, particularly in the tourism industry.
  • Caterer Global: Caterer Global is a good recruitment website.
  • Hosco: Hosco has a wealth of jobs in the hospitality industry.

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.
  • 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 Seychelles as a foreigner. For information on visas for the Seychelles, be sure to check out my Seychelles visa page.
