Applying for a Monaco based job could be one of the most important topic for a foreign resident. In many cases it can happen that you, your wife or husband is looking for a job in the Principality to support the family household. However in Monaco no foreigner may occupy a private salaried position without government authorisation!
Having a fixed job in Monaco also could mean a green light towards the residency permit, therefore all the salaried job positions are monitored by the Government of Monaco. No one can start to work unless he/she possesses a work permit.
The work permit is not granted automatically and there are serious employment priority preferences for every open job position, which are meant to protect the local labor force.
The following order of priority is observed:
- People having Monégasque nationality
- Foreigners married to a Monégasque woman and not legally separated and foreigners born to a Monégasque parent
- Foreigners living in Monaco who have already held a job there
- Foreigners domiciled in one of the neighbouring towns (Cap d’Ail, La Turbie, Beausoleil or Roquebrune-Cap-Martin) and having previously worked in Monaco
The employer who wishes to engage or re-engage an employee of foreign nationality must obtain permission in writing before the applicant starts to work.
This permission may be refused if there are people in the same profession or specialisation, who have priority registered with the Employment Office on the lists of those seeking work. Therefore finding a job in the Principality of Monaco is not only about your personal skills and education
