When it comes to foreigner workforce, Guyana is not as prolific as other South American countries, but it does have its fair share of expatriates. The most developed industries in Guyana are represented by agro-processing and mining, so foreigners might find more job opportunities in this sector. However, salaries for such jobs are not particularly high.

The cost of living in Guyana is somewhat high, mainly because the country imports numerous basic goods. Your best bet of finding a better paying job is through a multi-national organisation. For this purposes, contact any local such organisation and inquire to see if they have any branches or offices in Guyana and if there are any vacancies.

One industry that has grown exponentially over the past few years is eco-tourism. If you have any qualifications in this department, you might be able to secure employment and receive a decent salary. One third of the total taxable income you will gain will be deducted by the employer for tax purposes.

The great about working in Guyana is that English is the official language, so knowledge of other languages is not required. Nonetheless, especially in tourism and hospitality related jobs, knowing another foreign language might help you land the position. Other requirements for finding a job in Guyana include being at least 18 years of age and having a clean criminal record.

After securing employment in Guyana, you will be required to apply for a work permit. Citizens coming from the Caribbean nations may be exempt from some of the requirements.
