There are many reasons why you should consider relocating and working abroad. First and foremost is the fact that you can increase your earning potential. Earning a higher wage for the same job you do back home is a good reason to consider packing your bags and leaving, but it’s also a smart decision to make because relocation can be beneficial to your career.
To help you pick a destination we’ve put together a list of the countries with the highest average salaries:
- Average Income: $3,963 – £3,082
- GDP per capita: $50,510 – £39,285
- Minimum wage: £1,337
- Unemployment rate: 8.5%
Belgium is more than just the heart of Europe and the country that gifted us with many influential people. It’s also one of the countries with the highest average wages which are made possible by the country’s ever-expanding economy. Belgium’s booming economy has a lot to do with the advantageous location which has made the country a leader in world trade.
If you choose to relocate to Belgium you’ll find a very competitive labor market as well as a high cost of living. Much like the rest of Europe, consumer prices are higher than the UK (8 percent). Groceries are also more expensive (16 percent), but renting can be cheaper as a one bedroom flat in the center of Brussels will only set you back by £700 per month.
