Hiring in Albania

Famous for its beautiful Adriatic coastline and mountainous interior, Albania remains a developing economy and one of Europe’s poorest nations. After 44 years of totalitarian Communist rule, Albania finally held recognised democratic elections, opening up the economy and ending one-party rule.

Despite aged judicial and political systems, a lack of infrastructure and an economy still heavily focused on agriculture, Albania is ripe for investment, with growing manufacturing and services sectors and ambitions to join the European Union firmly on the agenda.

With around 4% of Albania’s population currently in tertiary education and GDP growth at around 20% up to 2025, hiring in Albania is becoming more attractive as problems like corruption and inefficient governance continue to improve.

Add in the fact that around 40% of Albanians speak English and Albania becomes an attractive proposition for international hiring. An expert payroll service provider in Albania is recommended thanks to cumbersome laws and regulations, as well as a complex tax system.
