Poland: Curiosity – Expat Population Continues to Grow

Jobs for foreigners available in logistics, agriculture, food processing and construction

By Immigration Specialist

polandThe number of foreigners working in Poland is growing at a steady rate. The Ministry of Labor’s 2011 statistics reveals a ten percent increase in the number of work permits issued to foreigners in Poland as compared to 2010. Furthermore, in 2012 Polish recruitment companies estimate 55 thousand workers coming to Poland to work in logistics, agricultural and food processing to fill in positions left open by Poles emigrating abroad.

Manual laborers mostly come from Ukraine, Russia and Armenia, while the top countries providing highly skilled professionals are Germany and Italy. Many foreigners take part in major infrastructure projects, especially in the on-going construction of the second metro line in Warsaw which needs blue collar workers as well as engineers to handle the drilling machines.

A new phenomenon is the influx of young graduates from the neighboring Germany, looking for vacancies in the Polish factories of companies such as Opel and Volkswagen, which offer well-payed manager positions.

According to statistics presented by the newspaper Gazetta Prawna, every tenth company in Poland employs foreigners illegally. Illegal employment results in fines for the employer as well as the foreigner, with possible deportation.
