Working in Delhi

working in delhiAt one point expats working in Delhi were primarily 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 city’s 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, from cars to luxury clothes, that have started to cultivate an interest in opening branches in Delhi.

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 like engineering and designing.

Many expats who travel to India with their families have accompanying spouses who look for employment. Several agencies are available to help such expats find suitable jobs, ranging from teaching and nursing to artistry and retail.

Expats will need a valid visa to working in Delhi, regardless of which country they arrive from.
