You seem to have answered your own question.

That's a very broad question. What are your skills/experience/qualifications/age?

Repeating your question is not what I expected when I asked you "What do you mean by" ...

Bingo! The minimum wage in Frankfurt is the same as everywhere in germany: 8,50 Euro per hour and there is no specific general minimum monthly salary for Frankfurt. A bankster earns more than a cop earns more than a hairdresser ...

One that you are qualified for and one that you are allowed to exercise with your qualifications. So I second Smaugs questions: What are your skills/experience/qualifications/age? And how good is your german on what legal basis do you stay in germany?

Sorry to say that but with warehouse jobs or luggage handling at the airport (or similar low skills manual jobs) you will get nowhere near your wanted 2.000 netto.

Curiosity? Tbh I'm personally not that interested in you repeating questions, telling what you are not etc. and I also don't think that Smaug or anyone else is – but YOU asked for help here and without proper information no one can give you any advice.  

 

Maybe you're young enough (just another question you didn't answer) then think about doing an apprenticeship to get some real qualification, e.g. as a bricklayer, roofer, carpenter ...

 

Good luck.

AS others noted- what are your qualifications, training, profession?  It sounds as if you are looking for   unqualified positions., and the pay will not be great.

You will also be competing with  Germans,  all the EU citizens, and others who all speak pretty good German.

If you  do want advice from some of the expert TTers, then more info is needed re jobs/salaries,  mini-jobs, midi jobs etc. It really is not curiosity,   as you asked for advice.

 Good luck- hope your wife and family/friends may have some suggestions.

As of January 1, 2017, you can expect to make 8,84€/hour. The amount you'll earn net depends on your tax class, however, you won't be able to earn even 2000 €/ month gross working at unskilled jobs.

Unless your wife has a good job, it'll probably be difficult for you to find housing in Frankfurt.

Like engelchen says, finding housing in Frankfurt for a no-yet-employed couple would be [very, very] difficult. Competition is fierce in the neighborhoods where everyone wants to live, viz. Sachsenhausen, Nordend, Westend, Bornheim and Bockenheim; but there's always the less glamorous areas to consider: much of Offenbach (some areas are getting gentrified), Sossenheim, Bonames, Hattersheim...  There's also less competition in and around Hanau. Bottom of the market is probably Dietzenbach, rumoured to be the ISIS capital of Germany (it's supposed to be inhabited by a disproportionate number of Salafists).

Waooo thanks man for your detail updates actually we are looking at a house at Mörfelden Walldorf thar is a village behind the airport.  i know is still in frankfurt though is a village????

 

competition is for those who live a glamorous life style, and of course that does not mean that one has to live in an areas like your last description ??

Hello all, 

I am in a unique situation and unable to choose between my options. Kindly, please give your valuable suggestions. 

 

Background: I am an Indian (age 28) and Working in Gothenburg, Sweden as a Developer. I did my master's in Sweden and has nearly 3+ years of experience in the IT field and earning 26000 SEK (~2700 EUR) per month after taxes, in the new job which I joined in October (2019).

 

Lately, I was offered a similar position in Frankfurt in an MNC with a Gross Salary of EUR 70,000. So, I am unable to choose between newly offered position and the job that I am doing right now.

 

My Questions are:

1. Is it worth moving to Frankfurt with the salary being offered? As I know I will be earning EUR 3400 after taxes, will it be sufficient (for saving around 1800 EUR) for a single person?

2. I have heard that Sweden provides best welfare benefits than the Germany and I will be getting married soon. Which country will be better to start a family on the basis of welfare schemes?

3. At present, I don't have any plans to settle in any of these countries. If so, which one would be better?

Stay in Sweden...much more social country than Germany (where you get free Autobahn but no free healthcare...it tells you a lot about the priorities of people here).

Hi,

 

I used to live and work in Sweden before coming to Frankfurt also in IT so I can give you some good info.

 

First of all 26000 SEK is a small salary for Sweden as a developer.  I lived in Stockholm so maybe in Gothenburg is different.  I was earning 33000 when I left Sweden.  That was 8 years ago.   So to answer your questions:

 

1.  Yes.  70000 is a good salary.  For a single person you will do fine with 3400 netto.  You will not be rich but you will be fine.  To put it in other words.  With 26000 SEk in Sweden you will be able to get by but would be hard for you to save much of it.  I really liked Sweden but it is a lot more expensive than Germany when it comes to everyday shopping or eating out.

2.  I am not sure what do you mean by welfare but if you get married and your wife will live with you in Germany your netto will go up as you will be put in a different tax class.  Your netto will go up to around 3900.    Having a family is good in both countries as they have pretty similar benefits.  I think Germany has the advantage a bit as there are a lot more activities where you can keep your kids busy.   One advantage in Sweden is that as a father you get a lot of payed time off.

3.  Which country is better depends on you and what you like.   If you want a more relaxed attitude towards life then Sweden is better than Germany.   If you want to have more job opportunities, more cash in your packet and you like traveling then Frankfurt is better.  Frankfurt is in the middle of Europe so it is very easy to travel around.

 

In conclusion the salary is way better in Frankfurt than what you have in Gothenburg and the possibilities of earning more are also better in Germany.   I really liked Sweden but it can get a bit boring after a while.   Frankfurt area is a lot more international and it might be easier for you to integrate.  But again all depends on how you are as a person.

 

PS:  Compared to Sweden where pretty much everyone speaks perfect English you would need to learn German.  Eventhough a lot of people speak english you do need German for official stuff.  Also Germany is the queen of birocracy  :)

Hey Tonin, 
Thanks for the reply. Yes, I am open to learn German and would like to get occupied by more activities like gym, badminton and ocassional runnning. 
The only concern for me was housing and living expenses. Here in Gothenburg, my monthly expenses would cost around 13-15K SEK and can you please share a rough estimate of expenses in Frankfurt? My office is located nearer to the Frankfurt airport. So can you please also suggest places with affordable accommodation (¨~900 EUR with 30 min travelling to the office)?

Would be hard to say as I do not know the airport area that much.  I live about 40km north of Frankfurt in a house in a small town.   Take a look at the below sites where you can do a search to find accommodation in or around Frankfurt (appartments or houses). 

 

https://www.immobilienscout24.de/

https://www.immonet.de/

 

Some things to note.  The rent you see it is without any utilities.   to that rent you need to look for Nebenkosten.   you add that to the rent and that is how much you pay per month.   Be aware that some will include heating costs some not.  Usualy on a lot of rentals there will be  "Heizkosten in Nebenkosten enthalten"  Ja or Nein.   If it is Ja it means they are included.  A lot of accomodations do not include a kitchen.  Look for EBK if it is yes or no.  

 

Now to explain you a bit the difference between Germany and Sweden.  I am talking about Stockholm, maybe where you live is different.   In Germany when you get a place, in most cases you get a  contract without a time period, which means that you can stay there as long as you want and it will be hard for them to kick you want without good reasons. The selection is way better.  In Stockholm it was crazy hard for me to find anything good and in the end all that I got it was an overpriced second hand apartment.   That meant I could get kicked out at anytime with no reason and no contract.  Stockholm has one of the crazies rental markets where if you want to have something more permanent you either have to get onto a list or buy.  That is also the opinion of native Swedes.  I knew people that waited two years to get an apartment with a contract.  From this point of view Germany gets a big plus.
