While the PM demands better conditions for Polish residents in the UK, SHE continues to ignore any british IN Poland.. the few brits who actualy ventures to poland dont have any hope of decent jobs in Poland.

If your new to poland you will quicly learn.
Most of your job applications are ignored... almost 99%. They fall on death ears and put in the bin by most HR personel
If your not recruited from outside Poland by an outside recruiter you will never get a job in Poland. Unless you wish to destroy your career and take a holiday job like teaching ENGLISH. any prospect of a career will be put down and you will be BLED out the country (how dare you come to poland looking for work dont you understand Polish conditions) untill you have no more money. That is the Polish way! Bleed them till they leave and recite the Polish conditions theme.

Its so dire that Refugees tend to AVOID Poland due the the poor welcome they recieve.
If you were lucy to get a job, you will notice how your work collagues treat you! You will be leaving sooner or later.

That is some kind of nonsense. Poland is a country. Countries don't hand out jobs, governments employ people but usually they don't recruit them aboard. Let's import our new prime minister from Spain. Get real.

Do you speak Polish?

You will be leaving sooner or later.

Cry me a river! Poland is not a country for the spoiled people or faint hearted. Bye.

faint hearted.

Wiki Wiki wild east for those with ambition and a view to the future

Toyota, bmw, Rolls royce , GE, daimler, LG, mercedes but to name a few invested in new plant in Poland this year, go google it, the future is bright.

I think Poland has a great future so do the above.

Most I talk to in the uk with a high number of polish workers, that mainly export to europe, guess what , they are thinking opening up in Poland post brexit of course .

Do you speak Polish ? Did you research the situation before you arrived ?

Plenty of British expats have made a good living over here but normally by doing the two things above.

Why would someone someone pay attention to the application stating that applicant doesn't speak Polish? please explain.

Its so dire that Refugees tend to AVOID Poland due the the poor welcome they recieve.

Is that supposed to be a bad thing?

If they do two things above then they are not expats, you contradict yourself.

Any British person who has the skills which are necessary for Poland will find a job, even if their Polish language skills are minimal.
There are thousands of jobs in Finance (as long as you meet their requirements).
Poland is not for ex-pats who just want to bum around. The benefit system does not exist in the same way as in GB. Sorry, but if you have nothing to offer in the way of transferable skills, University degrees, Postgraduate studies, years of experience then sorry, but Poland doesn't want you.

The general rule of thumb, the less Polish skills you have the better your other qualifications have to be.

There are thousands of jobs in Finance (as long as you meet their requirements).

Which probably mean keeping abreast of regulations which are in Polish (English translations of Polish laws are notoriously awful and not to be relied upon).

Poland is not for ex-pats who just want to bum around.

Unless they don't need to work in Poland (because they're independently wealthy, or do telewok so their location doesn't matter, etc)

But yeah, showing up, even with some marketable skills, with no knowledge of the language or culture is not gointo lead to employment for most people.

A hoax. Poland is free country. I doubt that Poland refuses to give jobs to British when is very well known fact that Poles increasingly looks on Brits same as on Pakistanis and Afghans, and all of them can get job in Poland. If there is available job.

I certainly hope you didn't come to Poland and try to be an English teacher :D :D

And please don't say

work collagues

a colleague is someone you work with so putting 'work' in front of it is pointless.

They fall on death ears

Today I learnt death ears. When my wife talks to me I have death ears. Thank you ;)

Most of your job applications are ignored... almost 99%

What do you expect from us? That old chaps sentenced to death with 400 pounds pcm start learning English to understand you?
We often are ashamed that we agreed work in XIX century conditions. We don't need foreign witnesses at the moment. Are you going to be our rebel and fight the system? And finally today you need to buy decend job. No random person from the street can ahead sons and daughters of mum in the office.

I just don't see how the spoiled brits who only speak English can get a job there? Unless ofcourse working for some multinational and hired outside. Doesn't make any sense.

Polish people have their CV's rejected as well, it's not so easy to get a decent job as it is in the UK. Many times is up to who you know I'm afraid. I don't know if you speak Polish but even less chance if you don't and it's not because Polish people are against the Brits but how would you communicate?

The ' who you know' thing is bad for business. There are wads of smaller companies here who do that instead of taking best candidate and they don't do that well. When you use human emotions for businesses instead of merit you are setting up for failure. My first rule if hireing is no family and no friends in business.

@Lodzlover

I see you posted a while ago but:

A few questions before you continue treating Poland with any undue/untoward harshness, and like anywhere there are things to complain about, however much of what you say makes little sense-I would ask you:

-Do you have a degree of any sort? If not, why not? Do you have any particular skillset or work history?

-Are you reasonably intelligent and willing to work at different jobs until you find something you like? When I lived in Prague I was surprised at the sheer number of Brits who only ever spoke English but through working odd jobs and seizing every opportunity eventually managed to carve out a decent living.

-Do you speak any language other than English? I think you need to do this and fast if you want to live in Europe. Start studying, spend 6 months somewhere studying any EU language of any mild commercial importance. If you think you should not do this, or could not do this, you are just being lazy and making it twice as hard on yourself. I find the British attitude towards English to be particularly colonial at times and they could do with more humility and a willingness to learn when abroad in this regard. And I am not even talking about learning Polish yet-didn't you study French/Spanish/German in school or college? Surely it would not be too much to ask that you spend some time in a western European country, learn a second language, and then improve your 'career prospects'? You might even learn something. Don't offer up excuses, get on with it.

-Do you have IT skills? I have just started in IT recently but my languages were needed.

-What is wrong with teaching? I did this for a year and while it is poor money full time, it can be a useful second job(which is what it is for me now). I would say I will now earn an extra 1000 zlotych a month on average from 5 extra hours of work a week. Now tell me that doesn't make a big difference to your life when you already have a full time income here. I will actually be able to buy new furniture and have decent holidays.

-Why do you talk down the merits of learning even some Polish? I do Polish classes in my work and the other foreigners in that class have a similar level to me(lower-intermediate or intermediate, I am lower-intermediate). I speak Polish socially at work, even about some work issues which are not so complicated.

To be honest, I think you are being lazy and you could do much better. I am not known for my positive attitude in my social circles but even my life is looking good now with a full time IT job, extra teaching work, and my Polish is improving a little every week.

English is also my first language so you haven't got much of an excuse, now have you? I know other people from different parts of Europe and beyond and those who speak English natively are usually the laziest type of immigrants when it comes to integrating.

Speak for yourself. If you bring value to a company, you'll get a job. Speaking Polish is pretty much essential if you want to function in a Polish company though - perhaps as much as 40% of my work involves Polish in some way. Even on Thursday morning, I had a task to complete that involved understanding how Polish law interprets a certain business requirement. Without Polish, I simply wouldn't be able to do it.

Unless you wish to destroy your career and take a holiday job like teaching ENGLISH. any prospect of a career will be put down and you will be BLED out the country

You really won't. There's so many opportunities for monolingual English speakers now that you'd have to be a blithering idiot not to get employed now. Having said that, most educated Poles will throw CV's in the bin if they contain spelling and grammar mistakes in English.
