The Bahamas is a country made up of more than 3,000 islands, islets, and cays. It is located in the Atlantic Ocean north of Cuba. The official language is English.

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

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.

  • Linkedin: This huge professional social network is a resource for building contacts in the field and location of your interest. You’ll find quite a few options in Nassau.
  • Glassdoor: Glassdoor is a great place to start your job search. They have a bunch of opportunities in Nassau and Freeport.
  • Career Jet: I’m sure you are familiar with this giant search engine. They have opportunities in the Bahamas.

Thoughts of Other Bloggers and Websites

  • Expat Exchange: I like Expat Exchange’s list of “10 Tips for Living in the Bahamas.”

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.

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