Since independence, English teachers and a few adventurous entrepreneurs have been attracted to Ukraine to work and do business. Kafkaesque bureaucracy puts many off registering legally. To get a work permit you have to show that a Ukrainian could not do the job you’re being hired for.

Online jobs are advertised on the following websites:

Cicerone ( Kyiv language school.

Go2Kiev ( Jobs and work permit info in English.

Jobcast ( Type ‘English’ or ‘Teacher’ into the search field.
