Synopsis

Live & Work in France is the definitive book to living and working in France and is full of personal case histories from people who have made the move there. The book gives essential information on the customs, laws and regulations and way of life that will be encountered there, and gives advice on securing a residence permit, getting the best health care, making friends with the locals, opening the right bank account, finding your ideal home, obtaining a competitive mortgage, dealing with surveys and conveyancing and making the most of your leisure time. Set out to be easily accessible, each chapter guides you through the practicalities of a move to France, from setting up home to finding a job and leisure time. In particular, it gives advice on renting accommodation in the major cities, especially Paris, with a city map showing its main residential areas and describing which areas are best for families, single people and students. The employment section of the book covers vital information, such as the skills and trades most in demand, permanent, seasonal and temporary work, salaries, working hours and holidays, trade unions and contracts, starting or buying your own business and sources of advice and assistance. Special features for the job-seeker include an indispensable regional employment guide and directories of major employers.
