Hi, My name is tom, im a head chef in ireland, earning good money. I have an offer for a years contract in an amazing restaurant in tallinn for a salary of 900 euro per month. Is this good money in tallinn? Also is 150/200 per month enough to get a nice apartment? Any advice would be great. Cheers

If your standard of living is low, then, yeah, maybe. The cost of living has steadily risen in the past twenty years, and it ain't like going to Mexico anymore. They say that cheese costs more in the shops here than it does in Helsinki. I work as a teacher in a children's music school funded by the city government, and my salary is about one-quarter of what a school band director in Texas makes, but of course I'm only working 30 hours a week, not 70. Still, I'm not sure my salary qualifies as "making a living" or even "having a life." My wife runs around to six different part time jobs, making almost a full-time salary, but we are still below the poverty line as defined by the U.S. government for a family of four. My wife shops for clothing at the Humana charity shop only on days when they have a sale. If you get your meals free, you might be okay, if you otherwise have no debts and don't mind living simply. Public transportation in Tallinn is free these days, and you can almost live without a car. Concert tickets for symphony and the opera are cheap, but things like power tools and car parts are amazingly expensive, simply because of our location. Hope that helps! Good luck!

Is 900 euros net? Meaning, after taxes? If yes, then they are enough. A nice apartment will cost at around 300 euros, with 150 euros you can share an apartment (have a room) but not have the whole apartment. But it all depends if the apartment is in the center or periphery of Tallinn.

Tere! :) I am Czech, but I can also speak Polish, English, Slovak and Russian. I have 3 years experience in payroll and with SAP system. I also used to study at Tallinn University as an Erasmus student and it was wonderful year. Now I would like to go back to Estonia, but I can see that its not easy to find a job. My idea is to find a work connected with languages, it doesnt have to be related to accounting. Can you advice please? Thank you!

adminee posted Semi-Retired in Estonia? on the Estonia forum:
A journalist working on an article for a popular finance publication is interested in connecting a few Americans over age 60 who have moved abroad after retiring from careers in the States and either found part-time jobs, started businesses or transformed their former careers into remote consulting gigs. We've talked with her about general trends in overseas retirement. She would also like to speak with a few retirees who fit this description. If you are interested, please e-mail me at -- tell me a little about yourself and your job and how the journalist can reach you. Thank you! Betsy Burlingame Expat Exchange
