The best sites I found were, you can put your CV online or you can search there database...I put mine online and got 3 calls the next day:




as well as the list of companies at http://www.sophia-antipolis.net/uk/

and http://www.initiative-riviera-technologies.com

Most jobs at the moment seem to be through the 30 or so contracting companies. Very few actual companies advertise directly.

Try http://www.pacajob.com

Lots there (if you're an Ingenieur) -- search by Cannes/Sophia as location.

There is also http://emploi.cica.fr/emploi/dev_en/criteres.phtml

Which concentrates on Sophia Antipolis type jobs.

Just had a look but there are not too many new jobs these days.

The best site for Sophia jobs is www.apec.fr. It is in French though. I don't know of any sites that seek specifically English speakers. Just being able to speak English is no great advantage in the jobmarket though - most people applying for jobs in Sophia have English as first or second language.wiggly waw fish

I have been on the website, I am just surprised there is not a job section to it and was wondering if such a thing ever existed?

Can you recommend any agencies that deal with English speaking staff?

(You may not be allowed to do so on the forum, but you can email this...)

Sophia has a good website with all companies listed but the companies advertise through many different agencies.  Some of the French employment agencies have officies at Sophia but they do not advertise all the jobs on offer.  Did you note the local jounal headline last week - almost 1.75 milion unemployed in PACA alone!

Bon chance!
