Hiring in Croatia

One of Europe’s fastest-growing hotspots for tourists, Croatia’s gorgeous coastline, lush hills and mountains and fascinating ancient cities are finally getting the recognition they deserve. From the amazing walled city of Dubrovnik to the truly unique Plitvice Lakes National Park, Croatia offers natural and cultural wonder by the bucketload.

Emerging from the Yugoslav wars in the 1990s in a better position than some of its neighbours, Croatia’s national pride has helped it to develop into a true jewel of Europe. Alongside the already mentioned tourism industry (which accounts for 20% of Croatia’s GDP), the powerhouses of Zagreb, Split and Rijeka have gone from curious post-soviet settlements to dynamic places where start-ups flourish and financial organisations tap into the potential of the Balkans.

Employing people in Croatia is as easy as it is anywhere else in Europe, and Croatians enjoy the same in terms of wages and rights too. Many Croatians speak English as a second language, so firms in the services and communications sectors are tapping into an educated population with specialised skills.
