Did you get any responses to this? I am possibly having to move there in a few months and was wondering what the outlook was like for working there.

Hello Joanne1, Welcome to Expat.com :)

You mentioned only about English speaking job, may be you can add as well in which field you are searching for eventual opportunities for example: Banking, Tourism or Accounting and so on.


Hello there! I would like to work in Germany too. Im looking for an English-speaking job particularly in the lines of Customer Service or any position liked to a Business Process Outsourcing Company. Im presently working as a Bid desk specialist here in the Philippines for PCMall.com.

Hi Dont have any information yet. Alot of jobs you really need to know basic German Language, for English Speaking Jobs.    I have been told he Customer Services or Export/Import is a good field to go into when starting off in Germany.  I am personally going to do a intergration course first to learn basic german.  But if anyone hears of any work if they could let me know.... Thanks..... Joanne

I'll be moving to Germany soon to become an English teacher.  The course I will be taking does cost a little bit but it's a great way to get a good, interesting career when you don't speak much or any German.  The more you know the better you'll be at it but you're not actually expected to be able to speak the language.

Hi, Joanne

It's great to see your making the move to Germany, It's a great place to live. It can also be a bit tricky finding work as an expat.

Have you thought about getting TEFL certified, so you can teach English to the locals. It's an ideal way to earn a living in Germany as well as giving your skills a boost. There is also no needs to speak German.

Have a look at the TEFL online community where you can meet people like your self living in Germany and teaching English!


Good luck!

Hi there,

I have been living here for a while but German language is still tough for me. Lucky me I found a good job and use English daily. Don't know if this is good, but shipping company is also a good choice. well just the idea.:D
