The number of Romanians who went to work abroad with a work contract has increased threefold this year compared to 2009, as more and more people looked for solutions to have higher revenues, according to recruitment company Thera Group.
“Economic recession pushed many Romanians to opt for a work place abroad, which offers better working conditions and better salaries than the ones they could obtain in the country,” said Cristian Tudorache, GM of the recruitment company.
The most popular recruitment programs of the company were work&travel for Spain and Greece. The workplaces which were offered were in the hotel industry or agriculture. Many applicants chose Nordic countries such as Norway, Sweden and Denmark. The most sought for positions were also those of professional drivers and specialists in oil and constructions domain.
