The job market in Luxembourg is dynamic and vibrant, covering numerous sectors and specialities.
The massive development of data centres and ICT infrastructure in Luxembourg has led to a sharp increase in demand for high profile candidates in different sectors. ICT job opportunities are numerous in Luxembourg. Besides the various national players and suppliers, companies such as Amazon, PayPal and Skype are recruiting staff in Luxembourg on a regular basis. Also, international service groups such as Atos Origin, CSC, Dimension Data, Fujitsu, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Tata Consulting, Oracle and Verizon regularly advertise open positions. According to the latest figures from the national statistics office Statec the total workforce in ICT grew 2.5% in 2014.
Furthermore, Luxembourg has developed a very favourable tax regime for expatriates, targeted at highly qualified individuals who are needed by international companies. The special regime offers tax relief that mitigates the expenses related to relocation, such as house moving and housing costs (if the employee maintains his/her house in the home country), expenses related to the relocation back to the home country, some travel costs between the home country and Luxembourg, school fees as well as a lump sum to cover the cost of living adjustment (COLA). For the highly qualified worker, the expenses borne by the employer are not considered as an income.
