We came to Portugal to rent a bar off a friend of my mother in laws,and after selling our home,car and basically everything,he turned round and said he wants to sell it to us now.After the shock of this,we have been left in limbo,and I was wondering if anyone know of any jobs going so I can get out there and work.
In Scotland I was a supervisor in a blind manufacturing company for 16 years,and my wife Lauren was a make up artist for Space NK and Laura Mercier for the last 8years.I would be willing to do most jobs,I have a current uk driving licence,and am a hard worker.My mother in laws lawyer is dealing with getting us the required paper work so we can work legally.cheers
There are lots of Brits that move to Portugal and start up businesses. If you start a business in the Algarve, you can tap into the British market. If you are unable to by the bar from your friends there are some other job opportunities you can also look into.
Often you will find that the best way to land a job in Portugal is through word-of-mouth, so its best to get out there and make contacts. There is a big manufacturing industry in Portugal. Do remember that unemployment in Portugal is quite high and you will need to perservere to find a job.
