I have recently bought a villa near Sophia and am trying to get some contract work lined uip before permanently upping sticks and taking my family out there.

I am 29 and have many years contracting experience in VB/XML/Javascript/Asp and am now working with .net.

I'd really appreciate any information on the market down there espacially in my skills area. 

My French is not great but improving.Obviously French will be beneficial but how much is necessary for a start??

kind regards

You can also have a look on www.pacajobs.com for jobs in the PACA region (Nice, Sophia and the surrounding area up to Marseille).

Market's a real mess right now, but you can mail me your CV, I'll forward it to my agency and they might be able to find you a position somewhere... can't promise anything, but it's worth a try.

It's not easy to find a job right now.

Cheers,

J-M

Paul,

I came down here from London last year expecting to find work immediately (banking and IT) but Simon's comments are spot on - the market's real bad.

Some of the sites that I have found useful are:

Also, have a look at all the companies in Sophia Antipolis - maybe try to check our the web sites of those that look interesting - http://www.sophia-antipolis.net/uk/pge/contenu/pge_entreprendre/pge_liste_entreprise.php

If you get to the stage where you find something you want to apply for then take it to the next stage from there.

Good Luck!

Julian.

Have a look at http://www.frognrosbif.com/forum/ for a place to start.

Unfortunately the jobs market in the area isn't very good IMHO, in fact redundancies tend to be the norm, and hiring is the exception.
