Working in Delhi

working in delhiAt one point expats working in Delhi were mainly relocated executives and upper management brought in to oversee large companies. While this is still common, it is by no means the only way expats arrive in Delhi.

As the industries become increasingly diverse, so do the expat positions available; ranging from top corporate management levels to jobs once in the West and now outsourced to Indian companies.
As Delhi becomes a more affluent city, local consumer appetites are growing and the city's retail industry is flourishing. This has caught the attention of many foreign companies who have started to cultivate an interest in opening branches in Delhi, from cars to luxury clothes.

Finance and import/export expats may be more inclined to set up shop in Mumbai, while IT heavyweights are often diverted to Bangalore. However, Delhi is respectable to both industries and many more, including manufacturing, media, tourism and general professional level jobs, such as engineering and designing.

Now that expats are coming to India with their families, accompanying spouses are looking for employment. Several agencies help with finding suitable jobs that can range from teaching and nursing to artistry and retail.

Indian visas are a necessity when travelling to and working in Delhi, regardless of which country expats are arriving from. A different visa applies depending on what the purpose for visiting India is.
