    Job Search in Ecuador

    Ecuador is a country located in South America. It shares borders with Colombia and Peru. The official language is Spanish. 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. Generally speaking, Ecuador is not the easiest country for an expat to find a job.

    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.

    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.

    In order to get a job you must first obtain a work visa. The 9-IV visa is intended for technicians or technical experts that work under contract for a company based in Ecuador and legal representatives that possess unlimited power of attorney to represent a company in the country.

    The following sites can be really helpful in the search for jobs in Ecuador. They are:

    – OpcionEmpleo

    – Multi Trabajos

    – CompuTrabajo

    – Craigslist
