What we offer is based on 4 key pillars:

1 to 1 consulting and coaching for those looking to achieve a specific goal and who want my undivided attention on a 1:1 basis. My specialist areas are virtual relocation support, qualification recognition and CV & job application coaching.

Online courses and books (currently under development) at an affordable price for everyone who needs as much detailed information as possible but isn’t far enough on their journey to invest in 1:1 consulting time with me.

Recommended affiliate partners who provide essential, English speaking services to offer flexible, affordable solutions to common expat problems. These are for expats who have recently arrived or have been in Germany a while and need help with a specific issue.

Free content through our blog and downloadable e-books for those seeking general info on a particular topic to orientate themselves as a first point of reference. We accept the occasional sponsored post (which we identify as such) to keep the blog ad-free.

Who is behind Live Work Germany?

Hi, I’m James. I’m orignally from the UK and I’ve spent 12 happy years as an expat in Germany.

During that time, I had 3 different corporate jobs, bought 2 properties, sold one, got a mortgage, filed my own taxes, have been both a tenant and a landlord, started my own business and, most importantly, along the way actually experienced German culture and what makes the country tick.

I have also helped friends do most of the above.

I hold a C2 German certificate from the Goethe Institut and can research topics in German without being dependent upon third parties.

Most importantly, I know how things work in “real Germany” outside of the Berlin expat bubble.

At the end of 2018, I quit my well paid, stable corporate job to become location independent and enjoy a warmer climate!

Now, I’m dedicating my time to make the site a more professional experience and to build out online courses which will enable more fluent English speaking, highly skilled professionals get the help and clarity they need with their move to Germany.
