• High unemployment in Sardinia, particularly among young people, means job opportunities are scarce on the island.
  • Seasonal work in resorts, bars, restaurants and hotels does exist but most jobs are snapped up by young Sardinians or Italians coming over from the mainland.
  • Other possibilities include English-language teaching – in a company, language school or through private lessons – and working as an au pair.
  • A useful online resource is Season Workers (, listing job opportunities on summer resorts.
