Our content and services are based on self-help, coaching and mentoring. We’re all about personal accountability and YOU taking ownership of your destiny

Job application coaching

Finding a job in Germany as an international candidate isn’t easy, especially if you don’t speak German and aren’t from the EU.

We offer a range of services depending on your budget and level of support you’re seeking.

From CV and cover letter templates, to 1:1 strategy and mentoring calls, right the way through to a complete 3 month premium package to help you land your dream job.

As a job seeker, you’ll need to invest in yourself to succeed. Sending out hundreds of international style CVs and cover letters won’t work.

If what you’re doing isn’t working, it’s time to seek out some extra support. Want to know the specifics of what German recruiters are looking for? Let’s have a conversation!

Online course

If you’re considering moving to Germany to work as a freelancer or start your own small business, our online course covers all of the common questions, tips, tricks and watch-outs, as well as providing templates and checklists to assist you with your application.

This covers applications from in Germany as well as to German diplomatic missions in your country of residence.

Recommended affiliate partners

Our partners provide essential, English speaking products and services to offer flexible, affordable solutions to common expat problems.

Are you a newcomer in Germany, or perhaps you’ve been in Germany a while but still need some help with a specific issue and aren’t confident yet speaking German?

We recommend these companies because they either offer English language signup and communication, or their terms of service are more flexible than most of the traditional providers out there.

Free content

Through our blog, YouTube channel and downloadable e-books and checklists, we provide valuable free content for those seeking general info on a particular topic to orientate themselves as a first point of reference.

We also accept the occasional sponsored post (which we identify as such) to help pay for the costs of running the site.

We are only able to offer 1:1 advice to our paying clients. It’s only fair that they receive our undivided attention!

Who is behind Live Work Germany?

Hi, I’m James, originally from Birmingham, UK.

I spent 12 years as an expat in Germany in the beautiful city of Wiesbaden (near Frankfurt), from 2006 to 2018.

During that time, I dealt with my fair share of German bureaucracy and actually experienced German culture and what makes “real Germany” tick, outside of the Berlin expat bubble.

I created Live Work Germany as a resource to help professional job seekers and freelancers to get the coaching, tools and resources they so desperately need, written clearly and in plain English, to successfully achieve their goal of living and working in Germany.
