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?

I was not aware of any U.S. Embassy spouses/partners working on the local economy. I imagine you would need to speak Slovene fluently. There are a few positions at the U.S. Embassy, but not that many. - Jun 2022

Not really. Slovenia's economy has been bad for a number of years; even locals have a hard time finding work. - May 2016

Maybe at an Embassy or as a teacher. But even many Slovene are jobless, so I don't think so. - Jul 2014

It depends on your area of expertise. Some demand fluent Slovene. - Aug 2011

Teaching positions at QSI and BISL.Otherwise not much. - Jun 2011

There are none. - Mar 2011

Zero, unless you get a job with either the British School or QSI. There are 3 or 4 EFM jobs in the embassy, and I believe they are all part time. - Jun 2010
