Barbados is a small, densely populated island, and this does not make finding employment very easy. However, the thriving tourism industry is a good place to start looking. The busier south coast is packed of resorts, hotels, bars and clubs, which makes it a good bet.
People from abroad hoping to work in Barbados will usually need a work permit. These are generally given out quite readily, after a small fee has been paid. There are several companies that will be on hand to provide helpful services and generally make the process far less painless.
