When times are tough due to recession and other factors over which we have no control, there is a tendency to look abroad for a country where we can start a new life. This is the case at the moment, and many British people are thinking of moving to Germany to find that new career and build a new life. We’ve been here before, of course. If you are of a certain age you will remember the television series Auf Weidersein Pet, the story of the bricklayers who left the north east to find work in Germany. This was based on real events when thousands of men in the construction industry were moving to Germany and moving to Holland to find work in the early eighties.
If you have the right qualifications and work in a field where your skills are in high demand, you’ll be more sure of finding the right job in Germany, which means you won’t have to live in such Spartan conditions. Although many German people speak perfect English, if you speak the language this will give you an even better chance of securing the job you want. So, if you are thinking of moving to Germany, the first thing to do is enrol on a language course which will enhance your prospects of finding the right job and building a new life for you and your family.
