Requirements for entry and residence
Salary and social insurance
Expect 14 salary payments!
We are of the opinion that the above-average performance of our employees should also be paid above average. Therefore, you can expect a salary that is well above the compulsory level!
Automatically registered for social security!
From the first day of your employment, you are automatically registered for social security. In Austria, compulsory insurance covers the following areas:
- Health insurance
- Accident insurance
- Pension insurance
- Unemployment insurance
Social security covers all important benefits. Of course, you also have the opportunity to have private insurance.
It's also practical that you don't have to take care of registration formalities or the payment of insurance premiums. We do that for you, as well as the deduction of income tax.

Studying in Austria
We would like to warmly recommend the following courses:
Mobility and living
Central location and transport
Even in the cities themselves, you are very well connected. Whether by car or by public transport, which works very well in both cases.
House hunting made easy
If you live in Kufstein, you are more likely to travel to work on foot, surrounded by fresh air and with a view of the wonderful mountains. If you decide to live outside the city, you benefit from perfect public transport connections and the proximity of our location to the train station.
If you work in Wiener Neudorf, we would recommend Vienna as your first place of residence. There are two reasons for this: Firstly, because our company bus will get you from Vienna to work in just 30 minutes. Secondly, because you immediately get to know and appreciate the advantages of the cosmopolitan city of Vienna.
We recommend the following property portals when looking for housing in Vienna and Kufstein:
Culture and leisure time
With a population of almost 2 million, Vienna is not just the capital of Austria, but also a cultural hotspot at the heart of Europe. Here, you will experience vivid history as well as topical highlights and trends in all possible artistic genres. In other words: every day there is something to experience that should not be missed.
