Employment Opportunities

*Information subject to changes amid the global COVID-19 pandemic.

It is not difficult to find a job in Argentina as an expat, as the country is home to numerous national and international companies, offering job opportunities to qualified professionals from all over the world. Many job opportunities are opening up for highly-skilled foreign engineers, managers and executives, amongst others. For low-skilled foreign nationals, there are fewer opportunities, but this does not mean access to the Argentinian labour market is impossible. It helps to have a good knowledge of Spanish, as well as English, and it is a real advantage if you also speak Portuguese.

Many Indian professionals currently work with Indian companies and multinational corporations such as TCS, Cognizant Technologies, IBM, J.P Morgan; Growth potential in EV market and hence there is a good business opportunity in selling or manufacturing auto parts.
