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?

There aren’t many opportunities here. Nurses could probably find something at a hospital. The schools hire part-time and full time as well, but that is about it. Not a thriving corporate community here. - Jan 2021

With work permission, yes, but it's hard to get that permission. - Aug 2014

If you're a teacher or work in oil/gas/finance, then yes. Otherwise, decent job opportunities are very limited. - Nov 2013

Teaching, banking. Limited opportunities. - Dec 2008

There are lots of jobs it seems. Our situation isn't such that we want to work outside. The pay is decent but not great. - Jan 2008
