Romanians can earn an average 1,700 euros at jobs outside the bordersPublish date: 21-08-2008
Salaries for Romanians employed in foreign countries rose an average 60 percent on last year to 1,700 euros, announced representatives of the recruitment agencies.
Labor supply outside the borders for Romanian employees also doubled in the first seven months compared to the similar period in 2007.
Salaries can reach as much as 10,000 euros depending on the job complexity, with engineers, oil industry workers and software specialists receiving the highest pay.
Salaries offered by the foreign companies are ten times bigger than the ones in Romania. A software architect who earns 2,000 or 3,000 euros in the country can receive between 5,000 and 10,000 euros in England. An engineer in the oil field can make somewhere between 7,000 and 10,000 euros in Lebanon or Nigeria. A construction worker in Italy could earn as much as 3,000 euros, six times more than a similar employee in Romania.
The differences between the salaries offered by foreign and domestic companies diminish with the skill level of the employee, according to recruitment specialists.
The average net salary in Romania climbed 24.4 percent year-on-year in June 2008 to 1,273 lei (348 euros). The average gross salary stood at 1,738 lei (475 euros) in June, 2 percent bigger than in the previous month.
