I recently got an offer to work in EUMETSAT as IT Systems Engineer. I won't be on EUMETSAT payroll but I will be a direct hire of Pactum consultancy U.K. and I will be working as a contractor for EUMETSAT. They are offering me a package of 87,000 Euros per year. I would like to know if this is a decent salary to live in darmstadt and would I be able to save at the end of the month after all thee expenses and tax? Is working for EUMETSAT as a contractor ok as far as job security is concerned? How much does renting a 2 bedroom apartment cost in darmstadt?
