Working and volunteering


  • Volunteering opportunities are fairly limited in Sardinia.
  • Websites such as www.transitionsabroad.com have links to organisations offering volunteering positions in Italy and Sardinia. A common request is for mother-tongue English speakers to work at summer schools/camps.
  • Some seasonal farm work may be available through organisations such as WWOOF.


  • 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 (www.seasonworkers.com), listing job opportunities on summer resorts.
