Top 10 Jobs with the Highest Demand in Luxembourg

Hi there, welcome back.

Not going to lie, it’s getting difficult to get sponsored roles in most of the top countries. The markets are saturated and the roles offering sponsorship are reducing.

So thank goodness for Luxembourg! Because Luxembourg is still looking for foreign workers to fill vacant roles.

In case you’re wondering if it’s financially worth it, the average salary in Luxembourg is €4000-€5000 a month (Rs. 358,000 to Rs. 448,000/month).

If you’re interested in moving to Luxembourg, it might make sense for you to understand what your chances are and the best way to do that is for you to understand which jobs are in most demand in Luxembourg.

Advantages of working in Luxembourg

Luxembourg has 660,000 inhabitants of which approximately 313,000 are foreigners. 

Luxembourg is actually ranked second in the world for attraction of talents and is a world leader in highly skilled employment. Approximately 75% of the country's workforce comprises of immigrant workers or cross-border commuters. 

The key business sectors are Space Technologies, Life Sciences, Automotive, Clean Technologies, Fintech and Logistics. But the main reasons why Luxembourg is so popular off-late with expats or foreigners looking to move to the country is 

  1. The competition you'll face! Unlike countries like the US, UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Germany, Luxembourg is still relatively low on the list of many looking to move which means the number of people applying for these jobs are fewer and obviously your chances of converting that job interview are higher.

  2. Secondly, the tax in Luxembourg is lower than many other leading European countries which means you get to save more. To give you an idea, the average tax in Luxembourg is 33.2% vs other European biggies (Netherlands 37.1%, Germany 37.4%, Portugal 43.6%).

  3. Salaries are also higher than many of Luxembourg’s European neighbours.  According to latest figures, the average gross salary in Luxembourg is €4,000 to €5,000 which is a lot higher than other leading countries like Germany (€3,700), France (€3,000), Belgium (€3,500), Netherlands (€3,600), the UK (€3,200) & the US (€4,300).

  4. When it comes to the language of business, yes there are many jobs that require you to speak French, Germany or Luxembourgish but the good news is that there are still many employers that are happy with just English so it’s possible to find a job without knowing any additional languages

  5. With regards to social benefits, Luxembourg often ranks among the safest places in the world, has a strong community system, an excellent healthcare system, attractive social benefits

  6. And if you’re looking to get sponsored, the visa cost is €80 which is often Bourne by the sponsor and the visa takes approx 15 days to be processed, which means your move to Luxembourg could become a reality sooner than you expect.
