IT Project Manager moving to Krakow Area?

Hi everyone. Just wanted some input from anyone who has made the move from the UK to Poland, or anyone currently in Poland with some insight into English workers.

The wife (Polish National) and I (English - currently learning Polish but not yet fluent) are looking to move to Poland in 2015 and I'm looking at several different options for working out in Poland. Taking things on a worst case basis - in 2 years time I will have been working in IT project & programme management for 8 years and as it's worst case I'll still be learning Polish. What are the oportunities really like for English speaking skilled workers? I'm thinking along the lines of the big international companies here that are currently based in Krakow; IBM, CISCO, Microsoft, Google, Cap Gemini etc. Is it likely that they would take someone experienced on from the Uk who isn't necessarily fluent in Polish?

So again, just looking for your thoughts here. This is all worst case scenareo for me as I am looking at other options for work over the next couple of years. However, just wanting to get a feel for the options and whether or not this is even a valid route?

Thanks in advance all!

BPO companies do not require knowledge of Polish. In Kraków, check out Shell for example.

Business Process Outsourcing. Type in Google BPO and Poland.
Companies such as CapGemini, Accenture, Infosys (although Infosys is in £ódż)
CapGemini is in Katowice.
