How to find a job in the Czech Republic

There are lots of ways for job searching in the Czech Republic. You are able to find suitable job offers even before arriving in the country. But if you are searching for a position while being there one of the ways for doing it is to contact public employment services.

Public employment offices

The services offered by public employment agencies are free of charge. They are run by the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs of the Czech Republic. Offices can be found in all 77 districts of the country. They provide a great list of available jobs and help people with their job applications.

Job seekers registry

If you are Czech citizen or a foreigner with a permanent residency in the Czech Republic you may register with the job seekers registry. Doing so will help you to receive job offers and state-financed health insurance and social security contributions. The jobs you will be offered depend on your qualifications and previous experiences. Your health status is also taken into consideration.

It is noteworthy that foreigners in the Czech Republic on a residency visa for over 90 days or on a long-term residency visa cannot be registered with the job seekers registry.

Look through local newspapers

Another way to search for a job in the country is to look through local newspapers. Advertisements in newspapers are still a highly popular mode of promoting positions and a very common way of finding a job. There are several newspapers offering jobs in Czech Republic such as Hospodarske Noviny, Lidoky and the Mlada Fronta DNES. Other newspapers like the Prague Post, published in English, offer jobs especially for expatriates.


There is also a EURES which is the European job mobility portal. It provides useful information about job vacancies and the labor market in the country.

Private job agencies can be useful if you only have an intermediate residency status. It is important for private agencies to be licensed by the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs.
