Jobs in Romania - Living and Working

Romania is a beautiful and varied country situated in south-east Europe, sharing a border with Serbia, Hungary, Ukraine, Bulgaria and Moldova. It also has a fantastic coastline along the Black Sea with some amazing beaches.

Expats who choose to seek work in Romania do so because of its vast history including medieval castles, amazing scenery, including ample countryside where you can relax as well as those glorious beaches, the climate and the relaxed atmosphere and lifestyle, with locals who welcome foreigners gladly. The cost of living is also cheap, while the job market is growing and the economy is stable.

Romania’s population is over 19 million.

Due to Romania’s location, its climate has influences from both the Mediterranean and the central continent. This means that winter can produce plenty of snowfall and rain, but during the summer months you can expect hot temperatures and a dry climate. If you want to enjoy traditional winter weather but with all the benefits of a Mediterranean summer, Romania may be perfect.
