Job Opportunities in Vanuatu

Vanuatu is a 900 kilometre-long cluster of more than 80 islands. Many of the islands are mountainous and densely forested with narrow strips of farming land on the coasts. Almost 80 percent of the population live on the 12 largest islands. Bush-materials, such as thatched coconut leaves and woven bamboo are used for housing in the villages. Electricity is generated using imported fuel and is only generally available in five urban centres. Roads link major settlements but few are sealed.

The country is renowned for its beautiful island scenery and strong cultural traditions, but it is also plagued with extreme poverty, gender inequality and violence, high population growth, weak service delivery, climate change and natural disasters.
