Luxembourg is a landlocked country located in western Europe. Surrounded by Belgium, France and Germany, it has three official languages: Luxembourgish, German and French. English is widely spoken, as is Portuguese. However, if you are seeking employment here, fluency in at least one of the official languages is highly advantageous.

While it is small in size, Luxembourg is a globally-renowned economic player with one of the highest GDPs per capita in the world, fantastic wages and large foreign population. With a melting pot of cultures, it is an extremely open-minded and tolerant nation. Many businesses are located here, the standard of living is very high, and it is also one of the safest countries in the world.

Finding a job in Luxembourg is relatively easy, especially for EU nationals. Experience and qualifications are particularly attractive to employers, as the country is always looking for skilled workers, particularly with experience in research and innovation, technology, digital and logistics.

Why Choose Luxembourg?

Despite its small size, Luxembourg is a superb location for employment. The country’s job market is thriving, with many professional sectors seeking qualified candidates. International professionals are encouraged to apply for vacancies, while the country has one of the lowest unemployment rates in the European Union.

When you work in Luxembourg, you benefit from high average salaries, a robust social security scheme, and generous statutory sick pay. Employees are entitled to 25 days of paid annual leave, while parents are entitled to parental leave, which enables them to reduce their working time to dedicate more time to their children.

In terms of communication style, Luxembourgers are known for being direct, diplomatic and tactful. In the workplace, harsh criticism and assertiveness are frowned upon. Instead, you’ll be expected to take a pragmatic and sensible approach to communication.

Requirements to set up a company

This is an incredibly prosperous nation with a business-friendly regulatory environment and exceptionally low unemployment rates. The region has a business-friendly legal and tax structure, a reliable infrastructure, and dependable regulatory processes.

When it comes to establishing a business here, judicial processes are very reliable. To set up a business here, you will need a solid business plan. You must then select a legal form to start and run your business on, and apply for a business permit. You must register with the Trade and Companies Register, register for social security/VAT, and open a business bank account.

Requirements for employees wishing to relocate

Before commencing Luxembourg recruitment, third-country nationals will require a work permit from the Immigration Directorate of the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs. Work permits include long stay visas (to work for longer than three months) and EU Blue Card, for third-country nationals wanting to work as highly qualified workers for more than three months. EU citizens, as well as residents of Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Switzerland, do not require a work permit to live and work in the country.
