How to get a work permit in Greenland?

Nordic citizens may settle and work in Greenland. But, certain occupations need special permission. Even if you are a citizen of a Nordic country. Citizens from countries outside the Nordic region must have a work and house permit to live and work in Greenland. Greenland is part of the Danish commonwealth and enjoys a high degree of autonomy. But, the area of immigration has not been transferred to the government of Greenland. It is Denmark that decides who can enter and work in Greenland.

Can you work in Greenland without knowing Greenlandic?

It depends on the work you are looking for. Some people will tell that you will have no chance of getting to work without learning Greenlandic unless you are qualified to teach English or some other language that is widely taught in Greenland. Some other people will tell you that they lived and worked for years in Turkey with just enough Greenlandic to order at a restaurant or to get a taxi.
If an employer is interested in hiring you from abroad, your knowledge of Greenlandic will probably not be important. So try to find a job and then worry about becoming fluent in Greenlandic later.

Jobs in Greenland you can do

Part-time work 

Part-time work is available throughout Turkey, especially in tourism (tourism). You won’t be well-paid for this kind of job, and as a result, it’s better for those young people who don’t want to save. For example, if you’re working in a bar, you might get paid enough for your rent.

Note also that many part-time jobs pay in cash and employers will not be sponsoring work visas. Although this is usually not an issue, you should be conscious that you can work in certain cases. Also, you should not any expect protection from dishonest employers.

Teaching English in Greenland

In case you are not able to secure a teaching job before you arrive in Turkey. Then you will need to visit schools in person to ask about openings. You must have advanced degrees and certifications for teaching to get the best jobs.

Try visiting some private schools if you feel your qualifications may be lacking. Make sure you have your passport, a copy of your degree, a teaching certificate, and a resume.
Also, Dershanes recruits teachers without formal teaching certifications.

If you are looking for English teacher jobs online then use a website like  TEFL and Dave´s ESL Cafe that offers up-to-date listings of open positions.
