We help candidates during their application process by adapting their professional qualification documents to the required standards and assisting them in having their formal qualifications officially recognised. Once hired, we help them integrate into their new environment.
While relocating to and working in one of the DACH countries is relatively straightforward for EU citizens, there are some key elements which should be considered.
The first is language skills. Many large companies in the DACH countries use English as their official language of communication. Even so, most employees will be native German-speakers and will converse in German most of the time. We thus strongly advise clients to facilitate the learning of German to their non-German speaking staff and assist successful candidates in finding ways to quickly attain good oral and writing command of the language.
Finding accommodation in large cities can be difficult and expensive. Rental prices in cities like Munich, Vienna and Zurich can be high. In rural areas though, where many of the famed “Mittelstand” are located, accommodation tends to be easier and more affordable. If needed, we will assist candidates to find adequate accommodation in urban areas.
Taxation, contributions to social benefits and medical insurance coverage differ from country to country. We provide candidates with an overview of the legal framework in the relevant country and help them with specific issues.
