(Logo for Duncan M cGregor Accounting, DMA, whose proprietor Duncan McGregor is an expat doing business in the coastal town of Cascais, Portugal, pictured.) – Best Places In The World To Retire – International LivingIt is very difficult to get a job in Portugal.  The unemployment rate in must be hovering at 15% at the moment. 
 
It might also be difficult for a foreigner to find a job here but that could also depend on his area of expertise. The Portuguese are trying to attract high value added professions, which is in part why the government came up with the Non-Habitual Resident regime, to try and get highly skilled people to come here or to be transferred here by multinationals.
 
The local job market, though, is extremely tight. So if you are a foreigner, depending on your skill, it may or may not be easy for you to find a job in Portugal. If you are an IT expert, for example, you would find a lot of opportunities here but if you are a doctor or a lawyer, you would probably find the market saturated. There are some niche areas where there is a shortage of really top class professionals.
