Moving to Coventry

If you've never moved abroad before, making that first step is most-definitely the trickiest. But once you've decided you're definitely moving to Coventry, you can feel secure that the gears are in motion. Coventry is the 9th largest city in England, and it has a growing population of over 316,000 people. By moving to Coventry you will be joining hundreds of other expatriates just like yourself, looking to experience the city’s wealth of cultural and artistic diversity. And InterNations can help you get settled. All of the articles in our Expat Magazine, for example, are targeted at those who are thinking of making the move or expatriates who have already done so. The articles cover various expatriation-related topics and cover, for example, the pros and cons of moving abroad. There are also detailed articles on setting up international bank accounts and on what to look out for when moving abroad as a family.

You will be able to further improve your English language skills, will most-likely be offered a promotion when you get back, the money you earn can translate extremely well to your native currency, and you will of course have a brilliant extra bullet point on your CV. Depending on where you are coming from, working in Coventry can be baffling at first, but with the right kind of help your working life as an expatriate in England can be carefree. Once the most important ribbon-making seat in Europe, Coventry's economy now relies more on cars, electronics, machine tools and heavy machinery built for agriculture.
