        :DI am moving to Crete (Paledoni) in April and am looking for work either part or full time . Any type of work considered. I do have experience in hospitality, and have a number of professional qualifications in nursing and care, and have managerial experience within the retail sector. I have excellent communication skills and a full CV is available upon request. Please bear me in mind if you have anything at all available.
        P.S. I bake wonderful cakes and pies and my husband says I could cook for England.

            No idea if you have done already. Maybe an idea to contact the UK tour operators who use Crete, with covering letter & CV with contact details. *

            the fact that you have Nursing qualifications, is a plus for them, i.e. Reps or the like, if initially on trial or part time basis.

            Let them also know your other languages apart from English, even if you are only on the initial stage of studying one.

            * if you want to know who they are look up holidays for Crete and find out that way

            ps: i guess you will be limited in what areas of Crete you work, unless you have a car

            Good luck, but as previously stated on others who ask here, there is a recession in the hospitality areas of Crete, often other nationality are employed at low rates without insurance etc.

            you will need to get yourself out there and search on your initiative. Maybe something in Nursing within English Community.

                Just a word of warning. Your nursing qualifications don’t count here. Officially, you’d have to retake the exams in Greek to gain legal qualifications. So, whilst it looks nice on a CV for other work, you’d be unlikely (for example) to get a nursing job in a hospital.

                You might, however, get private care work, for which the going rate is €50 per day. You may or may not be aware that Greek hospital nurses don’t actually do "nursing" in the UK National Health sense. Patients rely on friends and family for bed baths, change of clothing, toilet etc. OR they employ a helper at €50 per day. Helpers may also attend them at home. So that might be a way to earn money if you advertise your services for the expat community. But get a good accountant who specialises in expat taxes!
