Does anyone know of anything or have contacts to help find employment

Hi everyone,

well i'm here in sunny Warsaw sorting a few things out.

In my last ditched attempt before I fly back to the UK, I'm trying to find out if anyone out there has any contacts or any ideas of where to look for potential employment here in Warsaw.

I have an application in with Citibank Handlowy, and thats why I'm in Warsaw, for a potential interview (which they phoned me about) but have heard nothing since (2 weeks ago) telephoning them yesterday, they said they are still sorting things out, if thats the truth???

Meeting a girl tonight who has a room to rent in her apartment, I'm thinking of just renting it anyway, even when I go back to the UK, so I have somewhere out here, and an address in Warsaw - what does everyone think? is it a good idea? short term maybe?

Basically, after all the s**t I had off that other girl (which you all know about) I have finally got her out of my head, and KNOW that Warsaw is where I want to be.

Its hard to find work here, but not impossible I suppose, so if anybody has any info at all, I would be so grateful

Thanks everyone

Hi Zion,

Well, I started out in mechanical engineering, getting qualified and working in that environment for seven years.

Currently, I am an office manager in the UK for a registered charity, bascially providing office support for our headquarter office and two other offices nearby. Some of my time is spent sorting out IT issues, pc user support, network administration etc. other times I could be producing progress reports, collating and monitoring project statistics, managing information databases, formulating project financial spreadsheets or liasing/meeting with partner agencies.

These are just some of the things I do, sometimes multi-tasking is required to cover other area's and posts at times when needed.

As for my Polish, well that is still at a basic level, I intend to go to school once out here to do intensive Polish.

Don't know if any of this is relevant to any possibilties you have at your multi national company, any information and help would be really gratefully received.

Many thanks

I have recently move to Poland and am living in Slawa with my wife. I am from America but have been living in Europe for the last 10years. I understand a great deal of polish language but don't speak as much. My background workwise is construction machinery operato, mechanic, HVAC , Ranch Management, Foreman for construction, quantity surveyor, safety consultant, and volunteer english teacher in mexico for 7 years on holidays. I am actively looking for work and will have a baby this week. a little girl.

Need something to feed the family and keep the wife happy. Anything will do until i learn more polish in the school i am enrolled in.
