Salaries in Eastern Europe are paid at a competitive local level. Multi-lingual roles in the region can command up to a 100% premium over the same job without a language requirement. Candidates relocating to Eastern Europe should be aware that the gross salaries are in line with the local employment market not the Western Europe market.
