Poland: Hot favourite for Indian Workers in Europe

         Red Fort, New Delhi

Traditionally, Poland has not been considered a very popular destination for Indian immigrants because of language issues. However, that perception is fast changing. In fact, lately the governments of both countries have felt the need for greater movement of Indian workers — both skilled and unskilled — to Poland.  The Indian and the Polish governments have been having talks regarding the migration of Indian Skilled work force into Poland.
The two governments have agreed to sign a memorandum of understanding on issues of migration and social security. A working group to discuss immigration matters has also been formed by both the countries.

These steps will ensure that future immigration of Indian workers to Poland will be managed by government agencies and illegal immigration will be plugged. Further, the ministry of overseas Indian affairs will enhance the skills of potential immigrants through the skill upgrade programme that it has launched so that they can find jobs in areas where there are labour shortages in Poland.

Though the Indian community in Poland is not very large and is estimated at just about 3000, most Indians who live there are very comfortable. “In the 1970s there were a large number of Indian IT specialists moving to Poland for higher education. Most of us moved to Poland many years ago and have stayed back to work there.
The quality of education there is very advanced and courses in technical subjects are at par with the best in the world. As for jobs, there’s a shortage of engineers and those with technology training in Poland and many other countries in Europe. Getting trained in Poland can help Indians to find good job opportunities across Europe,” says Pradipto Maulik, CEO, Sevenseas Private Ltd, who went to Poland as a student himself.

Sanjeev Chaudhary, chairman Sevenseas, who has also lived and worked in Poland for many years, agrees: “After completing courses in technical education, it is possible to enrol for MBA courses in various good colleges of Europe. That increases the employability of young Indians even further. Indians being very entrpreneurial often choose to set up businesses in Poland.”

While the ministry of higher education in Poland is working together with the Polish embassy in Delhi to help Indian students study in Poland, various Indian professionals of Indian origin are also helping to highlight opportunities and courses at universities in Poland and providing information about the advantages of studying there.
“Learning foreign languages is of great importance for global managers, and this provides an ideal opportunity for both,” says Mr Chaudhary. “And while education in Poland is cheaper than most other countries in Europe — at about Rs 8 lakh for two years — it is well recognised and accepted across the region. For Indian professionals and students, Poland could well become the gateway to Europe,e,” Mr Chaudhary says.
“Members include Indian students at Polish universities, middle level executives who work with Indian and global organisations in various cities in Poland and others like us who have been living there for many years,” says Mr Maulik. Indian festivals too are celebrated in a big way by IAP.
