Can a career move help with the rising cost of living?

Can a career move help with the rising cost of living?

Whether it’s through the news or in your pocket, it’s difficult to escape the rise in inflation and the increase in the cost of living at the moment.

Energy and food prices continue to grow, and price pressures have broadened to other services and goods. According to The European Commission, June saw a new all-time high of 8.6 per cent inflation in the eurozone area, while inflation in the EU jumped from 7.8 per cent in March to 8.8 per cent in May.

Average inflation is projected to peak at historical highs in 2022, reaching "7.6 per cent in the euro area and 8.3 per cent in the EU, before easing into 2023 to 4.0 per cent and 4.6 per cent, respectively," according to its Summer 2022 Economic Forecast.

For European workers, this means that although inflation isn’t predicted to continue at such a drastic pace, further increases are ahead.

Across the world, employees are mobilising to unionise and strike, and citizens are organising to protest.

There’s no doubt that inflation is changing salary expectations, and for those in industries where movement and remote working is possible, many individuals are following the money.

A pay increase of 10 per cent, and upwards, is more possible by moving jobs.

Post-COVID rebound

Post-pandemic, there has been a rebound in cross-border job search, according to a report published in June by online jobs site Indeed’s Hiring Lab. The report states that European jobseekers are increasingly looking for work outside their home countries, both within and outside Europe.

Data from Indeed’s website has revealed that while cross-border searches by European jobseekers are still 10 per cent under their 2017-19 average, they are up substantially from the pandemic low of 32 per cent below that level.

When job hunting this year, it is vital that you remember to consider the cost of living in your search. If you have to relocate to a bigger city, you may need far more to keep up costs in housing, groceries, utilities, transport and healthcare and this can come in multiple forms. Look at salary, bonuses, allowances, benefits and a specific cost-of-living stipend or allowance, which are increasingly common.

Every day, new roles are uploaded to Euronews.jobs, which contains job opportunities – remote, hybrid and in-person – all over the bloc.
