Relocating to a new city or country to pursue the next big step along your career path can involve some daunting details that may be outside the scope of your job description. Getting the right kind of information and support; however, can make settling into a new place much easier.
With this in mind, Go Vilnius – the city’s official development agency – has developed a dedicated workshop that provides extensive support in coordinating the relocation process for new talents. Let’s face it – bureaucracy is never easy to navigate, let alone in a new country and in a language that you’re probably not entirely familiar with yet.
However, with a few tips and a team of seasoned professionals ready to answer any and all questions you might have about settling into the city, you’ll be off and running in no time.
Numerous workshops have already been successfully conducted, including one for a group of co-workers from Carggo, a US-based e-logistics company that recently moved its software development centre to Vilnius. Go Vilnius had already provided Carggo with some valuable support in terms of helping them find a new office, but on 24 October the focus was put entirely on Carggo’s people and making their transition to our city as smooth and stress-free as possible via the dedicated workshop.
The workshops are led by the Go Vilnius team and supported by the expertise of a handful of professionals representing different government institutions. They provide extensive information about accessing healthcare, using the public transport system, the education system, obtaining a driver’s license, learning Lithuanian and much more. Ultimately, the relocation workshops save a lot of time that can be spent enjoying Vilnius’ work/life balance, which is the envy of our bigger EU capital counterparts.
If you would like to join one of these informative workshops and make the process of settling into Vilnius much easier, all you have to do is reserve your spot. We’ll be announcing dates for upcoming workshops soon and will let you know what’s available so you can decide what works best for you.
In the meantime, you can get started with the Go Vilnius Relocation Guide, which is based entirely on the experiences of other talented professionals like you who have already made the move to our beloved city.
