dontdreamit,

Pop over to www.rearparty.co.uk , you may find a little more help over there. RP is a website dedicated to the spouse/family/friends of those serving. There are a few lasses that have been in the same boat as you and will have some useful advice about moving to Germany, there is also a board dedicated to German postings.

check out the airports - they always need fluent english in all jobs - but then again that could be a problem for you :D

Dont even consider NAAFI, my experience of them was in general inept and incompetent vergeing on illegal practise at times. On the other hand they would at least get you over there to try and find something better, but the danger is in being a UKBC not a dependant, since dependants (ie wives/hubbies etc) have more chance of getting jobs than someone considered to be none dependant as I understand it, but I could be mistaken.

What ever happened to the "its illegal to advertise jobs for dependents only" ruling that came out a few years ago.

Was it binned or just forgotten about/ignored? Or did they find a loop hole on security issues maybe?

Anyone know?

Probably found themselves a loophole, given that most people who are likely to want to work 'on camp' are going to be dependants, and I think in the case of NAAFI staff trying to escape the issue of finding somewhere to live is likely to be a fairly important block.

You have to be a german citizen to be employed in Germany, but within the camps there is very limited good jobs its a bit like dead mans shoes unless you want to work for the Naffi, they have a huge turn over of staff so theyre always employing dependants, but remember naffi staff are theyre for the male morale. Happy job hunting!!!!!

should really know better than to listen to a word they say, probably too busy sorting out the prolific whinging wives welfare.
