What types of jobs do most expatriate spouses/partners have? Locally based or telecommuting? Full-time or part-time? Can you comment on local salary scales?

Some spouses have worked on the local economy at good wages. There is not a formal work agreement with Iceland but I think the embassy is working on it. - Nov 27, 2017
No, not unless you speak Icelandic. - Feb 13, 2013
Not unless you speak Icelandic. EFM jobs are hard to come by here - there are very few EFM positions at the Embassy and finding work on the local economy is difficult if you don't speak Icelandic. - Jul 29, 2011
