A growing number of foreign citizens are applying for jobs in the business services sector in Poland. Recruitment firm Hays saw the number of foreigners' job applications to Polish sector companies rise 30 percent since 2010.
Monika Sławińska-Sławecka from Philip Morris International's Kraków service center said that the company received many more foreigners' applications in the second half of 2012 than previously. Candidates were mostly from Serbia, Portugal and Greece, but there were also applications from the US and Indonesia.
The trend is probably reflected in migration statistics. In 2011, the number of non-Polish EU citizens living in Poland was 15,500 (compared to 14,800 in 2010) and the number of non-EU foreigners was 31,700, a thousand more than in 2010.
