Well if you were qualified that would make a work permit far easier. Probably you should check with some recruiters. Without being qualified you would probably earn around 6000 zloty and a gym membership.

Senior accountant with 20 years experience? And they are offering you only 7000 PLN a month gross? In Warsaw? That is very, very low. Like half of what you should be expecting, or less.

You would have to be pretty desperate to take a job with such low wages. You could survive on that in Warsaw, as a single person, but forget about any savings.

Normal for Poland - there are a lot of people with financial experience.

That's around the average salary for Warsaw.

Not sure what kind of role you are in but if its booking, bank recs etc then thats about right. If its something more complicated like reporting or consolidation then with French i think 10k would be more like it.

Certainly it would not be 14-15k - for that price i would employ a smart Pole and teach them French

There is a huge shortage worldwide of French soeaking accountants at senior levels but not sure what tyoe of work you are doing.

It's not the pay cut per say that will hurt you. The thing that is going to seal or sour the deal for you is the rise or drop in savings potential, or how much you can put away at the end of the month into your savings/retirement/kids' college fund or how much is available to pay of debts, including mortgage fees and college loans.

Since, at the moment, you do have any information about how much you can expect to earn, you will need to get that sorted out before you sit down and do the math to calculate your saving potential. Beware of anyone who tells you that the cost of living is very low in Warsaw, and remember that your cost of living will be substantially higher than that of a native Pole. You don't speak the language, you don't know the culture, and you don't have a network of family and friends.

Do the math, but my guess is that a 30% pay raise is going to have a negative impact on your bottom-line savings potential, in spite of the lower cost of living. But you are going to have to do the math yourself.

Even if you earned 50k euro in Warsaw you would have a very comfortable life, be able to save and given Polands low tax rate you might not be so worse off.

But rather than ask here a much more sensible approach is to discuss with a recruiter in your current town about the market there or think of where you would like to live - most places are short of accountants and your employers are being cheeky by wanting your skills for less money (you mamy have some experience they cant find in Warsaw).

your employers are being cheeky

Indeed. You should ask yourself why, if you are more valuable to them in Warsaw, they want to pay you less, rather than more.
