Job promise

You have a job commitment, congratulations.

In Germany, employment relationships are concluded with an employment contract. Most employment contracts are written in German. This is in principle a good system, since in Germany a very closely meshed employment law protects each employee from inappropriateness. Nevertheless, it is still necessary to sign an employment contract which contains legally valid statements such as job description, salary, tasks to be fulfilled and paid holiday entitlement (which is 20-30 working days per year - quite generous compared to most other countries). We will gladly translate the core statements of the contract on the basis of common sense or put you in contact with a lawyer and/or translator.

The employment contract will also include a starting date. Please discuss your possible entry date into the company with us. The reason for this is the bureaucratic hurdles that we overcome together, but which take time.

As an Indian citizen of a country you generally need a visa to enter the Federal Republic of Germany.

What is the best option to realize your lifestyle? What are the best places to live and do they have a convenient connection (public transportation i.e.) to your employer? What costs will incur in addition to the net rent? Even fraudulent housing offers occur.

Especially in the conurbations (big cities like Cologne, Frankfurt, Munich, Berlin and Hamburg) it has become difficult for Germans as well as foreigners to rent an apartment, because due to the housing shortage there is a rent explosion despite the so-called rent brake. In many cities single flats are almost extinct, 1-2 room flats easily cost around 1000 €.

Since the demand for skilled workers has been rising throughout Germany, employers have even been developing concepts for accommodating commercial workers from abroad. Some companies, in particular clinics and hospitals that employ nursing staff from abroad, provide company apartments as affordable accommodation.
