Slovak life in England. How is he?

According to official statistics, there are currently almost every 80 Slovaks in England. There should be about 65,000 of those who officially work here. But this number is definitely not accurate. Many Slovaks work illegally in England or do not work at all. But they all brought the same goal here - the desire for a better life and higher earnings than in Slovakia. However, not everyone in Britain is doing well.

What Slovaks do in England

Several factors determine whether a Slovak will be successful in England. However, language skills are probably the most important. The advantage is definitely education and clearly also work experience. Statistics say that almost 50% Slovaks are employed in administration and management. Which is very positive. It is therefore not true that Slovaks can only be employed abroad in less qualified positions, or that they work here exclusively manually. There is also a large representation of Slovaks in the hotel industry, but also in industry and food.

The largest Slovak communities

Život v zahraničí, ďaleko od rodiny a domova, nie je vždy jednoduchý. Azda aj preto je bežným javom, že krajania sa združujú zväčša v tých istých anglických mestách. A kde v Anglicku nájdete najviac Slovákov? Jednoznačne v meste Warrington v Grófstve Cheshire. Zamestnáva ich tu najmä továreň na čistiace prostriedky Unilever, ale aj sklad odevnej značky Marks and Spencer. Je to priemyselná oblasť, takže pracovných príležitostí je tu mnoho. Slováci však žijú aj vo veľkomestách ako Birmingham, Manchester a samozrejme, Londýn.

Everyone is united by a desire for home

Although many Slovaks in England have been involved, they still do not forget their home. During the year, they celebrate traditional Slovak holidays with their families. Respectively, they celebrate the holidays as they did at home.

Združujú sa v slovenských komunitách, kde sa nielen zabávajú, ale navzájom si aj radia a pomáhajú. Bežné je tiež to, že si nechávajú poslať balík do Anglicka s tradičnými slovenskými dobrotami, ktoré im v zahraničí chýbajú.

Našťastie však už aj v Anglicku existuje možnosť zakúpiť si slovenské produkty. Dá sa tak urobiť online na webe www.matkoakubko.com, prípadne navštíviť poľské a slovenské obchodíky, ktoré sú našincami veľmi obľúbené a vyhľadávané.

If possible, "English Slovaks" spend holidays in Slovakia, where they visit family and friends. And they often return to England with full luggage of Slovak goodies. The life of Slovaks in England is certainly varied. But most of them agree that they will definitely return to Slovakia after a while.
