The company is setting up a new entity as part of this venture and as such have offered me the choice to be paid by their London office as a worker aborad or by their Polish office.
In my opinion, the option would be to go for,
Salary - UK paid
Expenses - House/Apartment,school fees,car, Bupa or Medicover, daily expense allowance paid by PL office.
Anyone recommend any good areas
Warsaw is a little different to London, it is not so much areas, but enclaves or buildings. If your kids are young you may want think about private pre-school or you may want to be surrounded by families with similar needs as yours, therefore I would consider:
Zoliborz, plenty of green parks around plac Wilsona, good metro (tube) easy access to center, in my opinion the best area in Warsaw especially Stare Z.
Mokotow, with children the only interesting parts would be Pod Skocznią, there are two english speaking pre schools, ul Biały Kamień close by Pola mokotowskie park and close to the metro, ul Parkowa next to Lazienki Park.
Muranow, there are a few nice apartment buildings in this area and nice parks it is also very close to the stare miasto, the only negative is the lack of pre schools. But very easy access to the center.
You may want to join up to this website mumsandtots.com there are probably similar families with young children.
Also for further down the line can anyone recommend any nice suburbs with strong commuter links?
There is only one commuter link option that is the metro urbanrail.net/eu/war/warszawa.htm
The railway system is still under developed, in respect of feeding Warsaw with fast commuter trains from the burbs
Suburds - Kabaty or Mlociny both at the end of the line.
