Hiring in Bulgaria

After the fall of the iron curtain, Bulgaria emerged as one of Europe’s poorest nations, with creaking infrastructure, lacking development and poor social infrastructure. Fast forward 20 years and Bulgari is one of the fastest-growing European nations, a full EU member and a popular tourist destination thanks to the gorgeous beaches on its Black Sea coast and snowy mountains that provide Southern Europe’s best skiing.

Bulgaria’s economy is largely similar to other post-Soviet nations in the Balkans and Baltics. Foreign investment has kick started industry and Bulgaria is a key exporter of manufactured goods, refined copper and petroleum.

Thanks to this foreign investment, the Bulgarian labour market is becoming skilled, a double-edged sword as Bulgarians continue to emigrate to other EU nations. A payroll service provider is highly recommended, as unfortunately Bulgaria ranks as the most corrupt EU nation and the nation with the most complex hiring and international business laws.
