Quanticate People provide recruitment and staffing services across Europe and the USA. In Europe we offer contract, permanent and fixed term salaried / interim positions and in the USA W2 temporary employment, 1099 consultancy and permanent positions. We can advise you on the best options dependant on the country of choice. This includes providing direction on obtaining work visas where required; advice on how to make sure you make the right choice for you in selecting an accountancy payroll solution to look after your tax affairs; an overview of legal or employment regulations which specifically apply to the country or state you will be working in and local information to make your job move an easy transition.
When considering a job offer abroad you need to factor in all of the implications of your move - how often you will want to return to your home country and the cost of doing so; the cost of renting accommodation (how much rent in advance plus deposit is required and whether you will have to furnish the accommodation yourself or not) and how close this is likely to be to where you work; whether you will need your own car to travel around or will use public transport; will your current driving licence cover you or will you need to apply for an International Driving Permit; any work visa application costs; any additional company costs when working as a contractor; the cost of schooling if you are bringing your family with you.
You should also make sure you have adequate private healthcare cover for the country you are going to be working in and/or make sure you obtain an E101 certificate to reduce the cost of medical treatment in Europe. If you are moving to a different country permanently, will your new employer contribute towards your moving costs and have their own moving service to support you, or will you have to fund and organise this yourself?
Once you have decided on moving, there is still plenty to do. Prior to leaving it can be handy to obtain maps of the local area including directions to key facilities. It can also be worthwhile to find out about any clubs or ex-pat communities you can join. Then, when you first arrive you will need to register with the local City Hall, so you should make sure you have prepared and take with you any contractual employment agreements / job offer letter, healthcare provider documentation and any registration details of your company if working as a contractor. You will also need to open a local bank account.
These are just some of the things to consider.
Quanticate People can help you with further advice to make that transition as smooth as possible. Contact us directly for details. To find out more about the open vacancies we have in a specific country please use the vacancies search box above.
