In the last fifteen years, Cyprus has developed into an attractive cosmopolitan island blending quality Mediterranean lifestyle and bustling international and local industry.

The major towns now offer many of the trappings you might expect from a developed modern city; excellent entertainment and international high quality cuisine, with the accessible traditional villages offering a refuge for the quieter life.

Since the division of the island in 1974, the south has flourished economically through its main industry, tourism, and now attracts a number of multinational companies due to the beneficial tax system and its valuable position as a gateway between Europe and the Middle East. Greek is the official language; however, English is widely spoken and is often a requirement for many positions of employment either as a priority or a second language.

Salaries in Oil and Energy in Cyprus are competitive and there are many advantages the Cyprus way of life has to offer. A more favourable tax system, the generally more relaxed pace, the year round sunshine, the easily accessible contrast from the mountains to the beaches and the western familiarity (Cyprus has had a strong British influence as a former colony which is still evident) makes it a popular choice for relocation over its European Union partners.
