Relocating to Krakow, Poland from England. How easy to find a job?

Are you living on Planet Zywiec per chance?

I visit it most weekends, although Planet Tyskie can be very nice at this time of year.

Sir Harry, are you in the pay of the Polski Govt? If not then the only other option is that you most certainly do not work for any Polish company because I don't think you would be such a majestically smug git!

No I'm not in the pay of the Polish government. Yes I do work for a Polish company. I wouldn't call myself a smug git, I'm a smug b*stard, just read tomorrow's column in the NWE for proof of that.

As for the 6000zl a month for teaching English 25hrs a week, get real man! Are you living on Planet Zywiec per chance?

Not a big fan of Planet Zywiec. Nice to visit but I prefer Planet Wyborowa, it's exquisite.
As for that salary, average going rate for teaching English in Warsaw is 55zl per 45 minutes, which is a net of 46.4zl per 45 minutes. That works out as 62.19zl per hour. If we assume that there are only 4 weeks in a month (there are of course 4.3 weeks in a month but everybody needs at 4 weeks holiday a year), a teacher teaching 25 hours a week teaches 100 hours a month. So they earn 6,219zl a month. Isn’t maths fun!

and yes anyone that holds a residence permit mean has the rights of residence has the rights to work here also .....

Why do you keep repeating your mindless drivel?

Read the Act on Aliens, dated 13 June 2003.

Art. 53

1.The residence permit for a fixed period shall be granted to an alien, who:

1)obtained a promise to issue the work permit obtained a promise to issue the work permit or prolongation of such a promise or an employer's written declaration confirming intention to employ an alien if work permit is not required and demonstrates that he / she will possess financial means necessary to cover the costs of residence on the territory of the Republic of Poland;

If a residence permit gives the right to work here, why is it necessary to obtain the promise of a work permit before one can be granted a residence permit?

Can you actually read?

Eh, don't think I'll bother, isn't it just the writers and editorial team who actually read that for 'personal stimulation' purposes? I believe the other copies are just used for mopping up spilt drinks or as beer mats :)))

More like a tw*t if you ask me :)

I'm a smug b*stard

You see I arrest my case, who on earth apart from a tw*t would refer to themselves as a smug b*stard - tut tut

just read tomorrow's column in the NWE for proof of that

It would appear that only you and your mum will be reading it by the comments from the forum :(

Isn't it a bit tricky to use an electronic newspaper to mop up spilt drinks?

Tell you what, you bring your laptop to Bradleys and we'll see how well it does mopping up different types of drinks.

Probably somebody who doesn't take themselves seriously. Why don't you try doing that, just for a change? You might like how it feels.

It would appear that only you and your mum will be reading it by the comments from the forum :(

The paper has 7,000 subscribers. There is more mail about Club Corner than any other section of the paper. So I'd imagine that a few people do actually read it.

But anyway, do tell us about your career as a professional writer, I'm sure we're all dying to hear about it.

At the risk of getting thrown into the stocks and pelted with decaying vegetable matter, I would like to say that I really enjoy Harry's column.

Thank you very much!

Sorry but no can do with the decaying vegetable matter. Will pulped surplus copies of the Warsaw Insider be acceptable?

Amazing! Hadn't even noticed it had disappeared as a real, live paper! Shows how much attention it got

The printed version is still going. But my material from the paper version is generally just repeats of what went in the electronic version and the electronic version is the one which is more aimed at expats in Poland.

How much attention does it get? It has more than 7,000 subscribers: that's more than 70 times more than the Warsaw Insider. NWE puts out as many copies every week as the Insider puts out every month.

I did try putting in facts and quoting from the laws which tell us these facts but nobody seemed in the slightest bit interested and people just kept on posting drivel, so I thought I'd join in with the drivel posting too. Shall we go back to posting facts and sources instead?

How easy is it to find work.
There seems to be a lot of English companies looking for people to work in Poland.

this was the original question ........ i'd be interested to hear people's views on this also :o) ...... especially in Krakow.

I'm not got to start insulting you but don't be so negative, there are lots of Brits who live in Warsaw and they don't teach English!!!

Polanglik it will be difficult but it all depends on your experience and qualifications. I can't speak about Krakow but i'm sure there are lots of international companies down there.

Good luck with the job hunt.

Hi CaleyJags ......

Unfortunately our friend Zion is one of the most depressing and negative people I have met on this forum, and to be honest I don't take too much notice of his opinions :o))

I am in a lucky position in that when I sell up here in UK i will have a nice tidy bundle from which my family and I can make a good life for ourselves in Poland (Krakow most probably).

I run my own company here in UK and will probably continue that in Poland; i am also in the fortunate position of speaking Polish fluently and have good qualifications which I believe will be useful in Poland. I also have many contacts, family & friends in Poland so the transition should not be too stressful :o)

I'm in Warsaw next week, mainly for business, but also to catch up with some friends - what's the weather like in Warsaw right now ?

Caley and Zion ..... thanks for the good wishes with the job hunt :o))

At the mo it's 4.3* unless of course my very cheap Praktiker thermometer is telling porkies! Almost everyone has flu and/or colds, just like in the UK!

It's ok today, alot better than last week which was very cold.

With your background and language skills you will have no problems with getting your business up and running in Krakow.

Good luck again.

Shelley, I am sure Zion is old enough to stick up for himself :o) ..... and if you look back on my post you will see the bit which says ...
