List of Good Salary Job Professions in Europe

You can find great number of jobs in Europe but as per my recommendation please also consider any of the following listed job occupations that pay well there:

1# Sales specialists Profession in Europe

Even though online retail and e-commerce are at an all-time high, still many people enjoy a real-time shopping experience in stores. Thus, the demand for sales assistants in physical stores is still high in Europe. Depending on what European country you decide to work in as a sales specialist or assistant, and the amount of prior experience you have on average, you can easily earn between €1,500 and €3,000, per month. However, it will be essential for you to gain fluency in the native language of the country, for example, German or French in the respective countries, in addition to English proficiency. Consider applying for a sales specialist jobs in Netherlands.

Among European countries, Spain, France, Germany, and Italy offer many opportunities for sales specialists with varying salaries: in Germany, a senior and experienced sales specialist can make over £10,000 to £14,500 per annum, and around £4,000+ in France every month, and about £2,200 per month in Italy. So the earning potential varies, and job prospects are high.

2# Secretaries and Administrators Profession in Europe

18% of European companies are looking to hire foreign/overseas individuals as secretaries and administrators this year, an increase from last year’s 12%- according to statistics provided by ManpowerGroup. The key here is being well-taught in spoken and written English, as English-speaking employees are sought after for these jobs. Working as a secretary or administrator in Europe could get you to earn a starting salary of over £26 500, while those with prior experience can earn between a salary bracket of £35 000 to £49 600 yearly, according to several online job search engines.

3# Telephone operators & distributive workers Profession in Europe

An increase in job opportunities for foreigners in Europe is not just limited to IT or other sectors mentioned above. Telephone operators, sales agents, and distributive workers are also highly demanded by over 15% more European employers, compared to previous years. Especially in the case of Spain, where employers willing to hire foreign staff jumped from 16% to 24% in a year.

Even the earning potential in these types of jobs is good across European countries or in London, foreigners can earn over £12,600 to £17,400 on average per year, by working as a sales agent, or as a telephone operator in a call center. However, naturally, the average salary increases with experience, and if you are multilingual, that is a big plus point that could get you to earn greater than £20,000 even.

4# Cooks & Catering staff Profession in Europe

The Cooking and Catering industry is another notable mention, where you can apply and grow as a foreign employee: overall, 13% are willing and expect to hire foreigners as cooks, cooking staff, and caterers.

The prospects are lower in France because the employer percentage fell from 16% to 10% this year, but Spain and the United Kingdom are ideal locations to make it as part of the cooking and catering industry: 25% of Spanish employers are looking to hire foreigners, whereas 20% of UK cooking and catering companies currently employee non-nationals, and 15% employers are willing to hire foreigners this year. Here, if you are talented in cooking multiple cuisines, or have experience in catering that will be a bonus point on your resume. 

Per year earning potential as a cook varies between £7,600 in Spain, £12,500 to £19,800 in London, and €14,700 to €20,300 in Germany. However, if you wish to further maximize your earning potential in this industry, it is advised for you to become fluent in the English language and the chosen European country’s native language.

London is notably ahead, as it is home to over 34% non-British technicians and associates this year compared to last year’s 33%, according to various statistical sources such as ManpowerGroup, and Adzuna Statistics.
