Writing a CV - what's the Austrian equivalent of an A-Level?

I'm from England, now living in Vienna. I'm writing a CV and I thought it might be useful for the local employers to read the local equivalent of what I've studied back home.

So, is my thinking right or wrong?
And what IS the local equivalent of an A-Level?

Many thanks!

hey!
was wondering if you could help me, I'm planning on moving to austria, currently in the UK, i've noticed you've done the same, where do you begin in the process of moving? I have a place to stay already in austria just unsure on the registering as a resident and how to sort health insurance out?

at which point do you take A-levels? at the end of high school? then the equivalent is matura.

Could you share your cv to us. We have no idea how to make a good cv. Perhaps your cv could help us improve our writing on a cv. They said our cv's are poor. That is why we've been turned down many times before by some foreign employers. They never replied.

Hi,
A-level is Matura.

Thanks, I've written my A-levels out, followed by 'matura' in brackets.

I'm still looking for work however...

Hi leoniholmes

Moving to Austria is not that hard from the UK as it is part of the EU. I moved over 6 years ago on a one way ticket.

If you are planning to stay for a while there are some things that you need to do on your arrival.

ALL BRITISH CITIZENS WHO ARE NEWCOMERS TO AUSTRIA

Citizens of the European Union and Switzerland have the right to take residence
in Austria, if they

• work as employed or self-employed persons
• or have a sufficient health-insurance and sufficient financial means
• or are students or pupils at a university or school (and have a sufficient
health insurance and sufficient means).

Before January 1, 2006 they only had to register (with the Meldezettel).
Citizens of the EU and Switzerland who come to Austria after January 1,
2006 and intend to stay longer than three months, have to apply at the
Municipal Department for Immigration, Citizenship and Registry Offices
(MD 35) for a document called "Anmeldebescheinigung". This is a
documentation for their right of residence. If they came before January 1,
2006 and registered, they do not need this paper.
For their spouses, civil partners, children, parents and parents in law, who are
not EU-citizens or Swiss, they have to apply for a document called
"Aufenthaltskarte", which is issued for 10 years.

You have to go to your local Town Hall to register.

As for Health Insurance, you will need to get a European Health Insurance Card,

Go to this site and you can get one for free. https://www.gov.uk/european-health-insurance-card

Should you need any other help, feel free to drop me a line.
