Ergodotisi.com was founded in 2011, to fight unemployment by publishing all the available jobs in Cyprus. Since then, it has become the number 1 portal as far as jobs in Cyprus are concerned.

More specifically, 6,810 available jobs in Cyprus were published in 2015, and things look even better for 2016. As of March 2016, Ergodotisi.com has published nearly 2,000 available jobs in Cyprus, while the demand for new hires is rising.
Jobs in Cyprus with the highest demand
The jobs in Cyprus with the highest demand for employees for 2015, were those in restaurants and cafeterias. More specifically, 1050 positions in this sector were filled. IT was the sector with the most demand, after Hotels Restaurants Cafeterias (HORECA). 822 jobs in Cyprus were available in 2015, while in just 4 months in 2016, the number of people employed in this sector is 217. Third in the scale of demand were the people holding a Bachelor in Business Administration. 735 of candidates holding that degree landed one of the available jobs in Cyprus. Marketing and Accounting rounds out the list of the Top 5 most highly employable sectors.
In the HORECA sector, speaking fluent Greek and English, as well as having a nice personality (which is subjective I guess!) were the top criteria for employment.
In the IT sector, knowledge of HTML, CSS and JS were the top 3 most wanted skills.
In the Business Administration sector, marketing management, financial skills and an MBA were the top 3 most important features of the candidate.
An ACCA and LCCI Higher for Accounting and Digital Marketing, as well as SEO, and knowledge of Photoshop were the top skills wanted by employers in the Accounting and Marketing Sectors.
