There is a need for Russian speakers who will work for low wages at this kind of establishment nowadays, I think that is why so many Eastern Europeans are filling these jobs.

Not many Cypriots speak Russian, though.

Whereas you will find that the Latvians/Lithuanians etc will not just speak their language but probably Russian too (bet your bottom dollar they are good at Greek also)

I work for a firm where the primary common languages spoken (not the first language) are English, Greek, Russian, Georgian, German,

main first languages are Greek, Russian, German, Georgian, then English.

I speak two languages: English and bad! Plus une trais petit pue de Francais comme une vache Espagnol

I am going to Limassol with my girfriend. She will work here so I am wondering how hard is find a job (for me) in Limassol these days (ending season & crisis).
I think jobs in Hotels or any other related jobs (I am currently working in IT as Technical support but i know that with non-native ENG will be hard to find job in this sector)

Thank you.


The best thing is to stay positive.

There would probably be a few tourism sector jobs going at the moment which are seasonal. Maybe that can tide you over and give you time to check the market of your own IT Industry and test the waters.

You will need to sell yourself. The fact you speak Russian might be of interest to some firms.

Non native English is not a problem. I work with many people with non native English. Some of them have better ability to use English than some Brits I know.
