New on Passport: Are there great expat jobs outside tech? Oh, yeah ….

(Editor’s note: In the interest of full disclosure, Greenback does our personal and U.S. business taxes. So we can vouch for their integrity and competency. Sadly, we get no money for this endorsement.)

We’ve posted a lot about tech jobs in Europe as the biggest American tech companies increase their presence here. And that’s where the money is, no question.

But working as a coder, computer engineer or developer in the intense tech and startup world certainly isn’t for everyone.

There are still tons of right-brain jobs out there with established companies that pay really, really well … well into six figures if you have the qualifications and experience.

And expats, you’re in demand right now… as long as you speak English. And if you speak another language, that’s always a plus.

Increasingly, we’re getting emails from companies looking for someone like you.

For instance, Greenback Expat Tax Services is looking for talent in … wherever you are!

Candidates outside of the U.S. are encouraged to apply as Greenback is a virtual working environment.

From Greenback:

We are currently recruiting for a full-time Marketing Manager to join our remote team and would like to hire someone who has both the marketing experience and has in the past or is currently living as an expat. Do you happen to know of anyone in your network who might be qualified for this role?

Details on the role and where they can apply can be found on the job posting on our website.

Thank you in advance for your help with passing this along to your network! Much appreciated!!

Lisa Hochstein
Director of Business Operations

The Remote Marketing Manager is responsible for the entire marketing strategy, forecast and day-to-day management of all marketing activity for users on site, leads, prospects, new, repeat and existing customers, according to the website.

This is a fast-growing market!

As of 2016, the U.S. State Department estimated that there are 9 million U.S. citizens living abroad, a 120-percent increase from 4 million in 1999.

 Cargill, the Minneapolis-based global farm services/bio-research company, which has 150,000 employees in 70 countries, has dozens of openings in just the Netherlands, for example.

Right now, they’re looking for a PMO Manager for their offices at Schiphol Airport outside Amsterdam.

From Expat Jobs:

We seek an experienced US citizen for the role of PMO Manager. The qualified candidate for the position would lead a team of Project and Program Managers, and make sure that the projects are…

• If there’s one category outside tech we’ve noticed is booming, it’s mar-com, where many of the English-speaking expats we know are working.

Yes, left-brained people make money creating technology. But right-brained people have to explain it … and sell it.

Take IEE in Luxembourg City, for example. IEE makes sensor technology for auto manufacturers and needs/wants a higher consumer profile. They have an opening for Marketing Communications Manager.

Basically, the job involves developing an integrated marketing plan. In addition, you’d monitor issues, trends, news and social media conversations and react/respond with (appropriate) ideas and strategies.

You can apply here.

A note: We’ve noticed moderators of expat Facebook pages across Europe increasingly shut out commercial posts. We welcome them … if you’re searching for international talent, we reach tens of thousands of people across Europe each week.
