Work in Iceland - Information website on living and working in Iceland

Iceland is a family friendly and safe place to live. Icelandic industries do also offer exciting opportunities for international specialists in a variety of sectors. To facilitate a smooth relocation the Ministry of Industries and Innovation, Federation of Icelandic Industries and Promote Iceland have introduced a new one-stop-shop website on moving to Iceland, working and living.

Work in Iceland was formally opened at a reception hosted by biosimilar research company Alvotech in Reykjavik. Alvotech is but one of many Icelandic high-tech and research companies, actively seeking talent from abroad and competing for the talents of Icelandic specialists. 

The website is aimed at increasing the competitiveness of Icelandic companies in obtaining and retaining talent, assisting them in the process of hiring and assisting foreign specialists in moving to Iceland and registering for work. Work in Iceland is part of the larger gateway to Iceland, and has three main components: Living in Iceland, Working in Iceland and Hiring a Specialist.
