Work in Slovakia – Good Idea! continues. This time in Copenhagen

Richard Raši, Deputy Prime Minister of the Slovak Republic for Investments and Informatization, is leaving for a business trip to Copenhagen tomorrow, together with top Slovak managers. Work in Slovakia – Good Idea! will motivate Slovaks living abroad by offering vacancies in the IT sector to return home.

“We are organizing the Work in Slovakia – Good Idea! Event, which was created within the Digital Coalition on the initiative of the IT Association of Slovakia and our office, with the support of the diplomacy sector and AmCham, for the third time and I believe it will be as successful as it was in London a year ago and then in Dublin, because we are also going to Copenhagen with a clear intention – to present specific jobs to Slovaks living abroad. I emphasize – no promises, but real jobs that are diverse,” stressed the Deputy Prime Minister.

The problem of the IT sector in Slovakia is generally the lack of experts, whether in the commercial or public sector. This is one of the reasons why the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister of the Slovak Republic for Investments and Informatization (ODPMII) aims to ensure that not only qualified and educated people with skills and experience in IT management, operation and development, but also with a high level of foreign language skills are returning to our country.

“Prospectively, ODPMII has 66 job vacancies, 31 of them in the IT sector,” said Richard Raši. Specifically, these are positions for security and data analysts, network engineers, forensic specialists, but also project coordinators and managers. “Our delegation includes employers from international companies in Slovakia who will introduce their companies and dozens of jobs to Slovaks working abroad,” said the Deputy Prime Minister.

Representatives of large companies associated in the Business Service Center Forum (BSCF) of the American Chamber of Commerce at top management level – Adient, AT&T, Dell, IBM, Lenovo, O2, Orange Business Services and T-Systems, as well as a representative of the European Migration Agency are flying to Copenhagen to meet our expatriates. The Chamber prepared all relevant jobs for expatriates considering returning to Slovakia at amcham.sk/work-in-slovakia-good-idea.

Specific job offers will be presented at the event Work in Slovakia – Good Idea! that dozens of Slovaks working around Copenhagen have shown interest in. Practical steps that the expatriates have to take after returning to their home country can be found in an internet brochure prepared for foreign Slovaks by the Ministry of Labour, Social Affairs, and Family of the SR: (www.employment.gov.sk).

According to the Deputy Prime Minister, there are many reasons to return to work and live back home, as abroad Slovaks often do not work in positions appropriate to their education. “Personally, I think that the greatest motivation to return to Slovakia is not only family and friendships, but mainly adequate employment,” concluded R. Raši.
