As much as I love Austria and the Austrian people, I'm just wondering if there's an established english speaking expat community that meet up regularly in Salzburg? I'm pretty new here, cant yet speak German and I'd love to meet some other Aussies, english, irish, etc etc.... to hang out with occassionally!

Hi my name is gavin i have just moved to Austria from Spain with my Austrian girlfriend and my 10 month old son, i am English and looking to meet other English here. After living in Spain for 6 years and having a crazy time some might say its time to settle down, that i don't mind but i still want to relate to my own kind football, nights out and family events etc. Also if anybody no's of any work, I've been a builder for sometime now and i might add a good one to, please let me no. lucky for me i have my girlfriends family to help but if i don't relate soon i might go mad. Being in Salzburg is good only totally different to Spain but good culture and amazing views can't wait for the ski season and the golf is good. So just a job to find and a few good friends and i'm sorted and maybe just one winning lottery ticket. Anyway baby kicking off must go. ANYBODY OUT THERE

I'm going to be moving to Zell Am See in the near future and would love to know if there is a place where some English speakers hang out. It's always a bit scary moving to a new area where you don't know anyone, but it's even harder when you don't speak the language well enough to make easy conversation!

Hi, I was wondering if i could find some work or if someone could guide me in finding work in Salzburg during May, June and July. I am a Chartered Accountant-Investment Banker but will do anything including waitering, bar work etc.
Hello! I gave up everything I had to come to Salzburg in 09/2008 on the promise of an amazing job with an even more amazing salary! The job was OK, but the salary was catastrophically low and then, the firm I worked for went bankrupt leaving me in debt and struggling to pay the rent on my tiny one-roomed flat. Now, I've got a part-time job as an English teacher, but I'm living on barely more than the state benefits I'd be entitled to if I gave up my present job. I don't know how long I'll survive here in my present situation, but I'd be happy to meet or correspond with anyone who wants to communicate with an English native speaker. Whoops! Sorry about the verbal diarrhoea! (Just wanted to demonstrate that I can spell words of more than one syllable - sometimes!)
I am an Austrian girl with an American boyfriend. He wants to move to Austria next year. I know this might sound weird but maybe someone could give me some advice. We don't know where to find jobs for someone who doesn't really talk German yet.
Also, if there are any Englishspeaking ppl in Linz, who wanna write or something, get in touch with me. I can tell you about Linz.
ive been in austria for the past semester with an exchange program with my university back home in australia. unfortunately, as a student, i didnt pay too much attention and as a result my german is still quite basic. as i intend on staying for another semester i need to find some sort of summer job in austria. i saw that a few people were also seeking english speaking jobs so i was wondering if they had any luck. or if anyone could give me a point in the right direction to a good newspaper website or something. any kind of feedback would be much appreciated. hhahahaha i am starting to stress.
I lived in Linz between 2000-2001 and really want to return to work and live. My German is very rusty, so I was wondering if anyone knows of any English speaking jobs that are available, or where I could start looking.
My boyfriend and I are moving to Austria in November and most likely will look for an apartment in Währing or Döbling. Has anyone lived in these towns, are they good spots?
Also, if anyone has any ideas or websites to visit to find English speaking jobs, I would really appreciate getting a few tips on finding an English speaking job.
Look forward to hearing from you!

I am a Londoner who grew up in Land Salzburg. I have had my fill of London life and a planning to move 'home' as soon as possible. Work is the only thing holding me back. I speak German and have a good CV but I am having a hard time finding work.
Does anyone have any advice?
