Hiring in Lebanon

The Middle Eastern and Mediterranean nation of Lebanon has a rich history stretching back to almost 5000 BC. We know Lebanon today for its olive oil, vibrant nightlife and delicious cuisine, which has spread around the world.

Lebanon has seen a huge variety of stewards over the years, from the Romans to the Ottomans to the French. Today, Lebanon follows a ‘Laissez Faire’ approach to trade and economics, with extensive trading with both neighbouring Arab republics and Europe.

Lebanon’s economy has been affected significantly in recent history by the 2006 Lebanon war, the war in Syria, severe political instability, a liquidity crisis, fuel shortages and a massive explosion in the capital Beirut in 2020 which caused widespread damage.

Hiring in Lebanon is dominated by the services sector, which employs around 65% of Lebanese workers. Worker’s rights in Lebanon are extensive and foreign investors can tap into a skilled workforce that is multilingual in French, Arabic and English.
