    Job Search in Ecuador

    To be honest, Ecuador is not the easiest country for an expat to find a job. Ecuador offers English-speaking job seekers abundant work and volunteer opportunities. If you are already in Ecuador, you should start your job search with the notice boards frequently found in coffee shops, internet cafes, laundromats, and hostels.

    A person working in Ecuador typically earns around 1,360 USD per month. Salaries range from 340 USD to 6,080 USD. Ecuador is the country with the highest minimum monthly wage in Latin America. According to the minimum salary established by law as of January 2022, workers in Ecuador enjoy a basic monthly wage of over 425 U.S. dollars, an increase of 25 dollars compared to the previous year.

    The oil sector is still the most dominant by far. Ecuador’s oil producing sector has not only given many Ecuadorians a secure job, but is also a large factor in drawing expats to the country. Other growth sectors include chemicals, machinery, construction, and electronics.

    If you are a Surgeon or Doctor, good for you! Surgeons/Doctors top the list of the highest paying careers due to the critical nature of their job.
