Hiring in Azerbaijan

Long a Soviet satellite with a limited economy, Azerbaijan has become synonymous with black gold, big buildings and big aspirations. From the capital Baku and its fast-paced, international vibe to the traditional farming communities that pepper Azerbaijan’s mountainous interior, Azerbaijan is on a transformative journey that is putting it on a par with the glittering oil-rich cities of the Middle East in terms of fanciful architecture and international business.

Thanks to this desire to develop, Azerbaijan has made itself attractive to foreign investment. Alongside the dominant oil and gas industries (accounting for 95% of Azerbaijan’s economy), there is a growing high tech sector and plenty of opportunities within finance, telecoms and now tourism.

Hiring in Azerbaijan is comparable to both European and CIS nations, and employees have access to extensive worker’s rights. There is a PAYE social security system in place, with favourable tax rates compared to other European developed nations.
