Jobs for foreigners in Seoul

A posting in Korea Times regarding a job offer for foreigners in Seoul.

Seoul City will hire three foreign contract workers as part of efforts to make policies friendlier for expatriates.
Those recruited will promote and develop the city’s foreign policy, hold dialogues with communities, and conduct field studies on living conditions. They will also act as mentors for foreigners who come to live in Seoul after them.
Foreign residents in Seoul including migrant spouses who have lived here for more than a year or naturalized Koreans are eligible for application. They have to be fluent in Korean and experienced in cultural exchanges, journalism or public relations.
The city plans to give an advantage to Asian natives, who take up 90 percent of Seoul’s foreign population of some 330,000.
Application forms are available at the city government’s Foreign Residents Assistance Division at the Seoul Press Center between April 18 and 22. After reviewing resumes and interviews the final selection will be made in early May and the post will start in June.
For more information call the 120 Dasan Call Center or the division at 02-2171-2294, or visit or

  8. Annyeonghaseyo! Are there, if any, job opportunities for medical practitioners in Seoul? I have read an article that was dated few years back regarding changes of their medical law which gives licensed doctors from other countries to practice the profession in Korea but only limited to patients who can speak the same native language of the foreign physician. He/she can also treat other foreigners as long as they could understand each other. And how about residency/subspecialty training? I’ve read that plastics and reconstructive surgery are best found in Korea. Is there a chance that a foreign/Filipino physician can apply for the said training program?Thank you.
