Hi guys. I'm a 24 year old male from Ireland, who is considering making the big move to Berlin next year. I'm moving there as I'm a huge fan of electronic music - and Berlin is a vibrant scene for that indeed - and also I think the alternative vibe in the city may suit my personality.
HOWEVER... one cannot ignore practicalities. I have an M.A. degree in International Relations, and I'm currently working in the NGO sector. By the time I move to Berlin (early 2017) I will have one solid year's experience in the NGO sector. I am therefore wondering what Berlin is like in terms of NGO/non-profit/charity jobs, etc.? Also, just as importantly, are there many of these jobs that don't require German?
That is the specific question... but I suppose I'm also wondering what general opportunities exist for English speakers in Berlin? I have started learning German recently, and if I stick to my plan of learning for a few hours a week, I will possibly have some form of beginners grasp of it come early 2017.
Thanks in advance!
