People often ask us about expat jobs in Uruguay. The Uruguayan job market often has a serendipitous nature, with work showing up where you’d least expect it. For example, if you follow Uruguayan sports with a passion, here’s something that showed up today in our inbox:

“Hi there,
We are looking to recruit English expats in Montevideo for sports broadcasting work. If you could spread the word it could be a great flexible job for someone who has a love of sports and a good voice or some form of broadcast/radio experience and lives in Montevideo.

Anyone interested can email me at otaylor7@hotmail.com.

Thanks!”

Go for it!
