Many foreign businesses and international organisations, including NGOs and charities, operate in Georgia and run their Caucasus operations from Tbilisi. If you want to look for work with them in Georgia, you should contact their offices outside the country.

There are few direct employment opportunities for foreigners in Georgia, save teaching English. Organisations with large presences in Georgia include the UN, the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) and the International Red Cross.
