How much money can you make working in the Czech Republic?
How much money do people make in the Czech Republic? That’s one of the first questions people tend to ask when thinking about moving to a new country to work, but average wage is also a good indicator of cost as well as standard of living.
The Czech Republic currently has one of the strongest and steadily growing economies in Central Europe, fueled by tourism, IT, and high-end manufacturing. The country ranks very highly (27th) on the human development index, and scored 6.6 out of 10 in the Better Life index (which may sound bad until we see that the OECD average is 6.5).
The minimum wage in the Czech Republic is 11,000 CZK, or US$487.
The average salary in Prague, the Czech Republic’s capital and most booming city, is between 25,000 and 31,500 CZK ($1,100 0 $1400) per month, but can be significantly lower in other parts of the country.
As far as the average monthly salaries of individual professions go, here is some rough data to go off of:
IT administrators make around $2,200, data developers in the ballpark of $5,000, and a basic programmer can expect to make $2,000 per month.
Marketing is a reasonably well paid job in the Czech Republic, paying a slightly above average salary between $1,500 and $3,000.
As with pretty much anywhere else in the world, workers in the sales industries can expect a wide range of salaries, depending on position and what company they’re working for. If you’re a sales director, you can bring in as much as $11,000 per month, but if you’re a clerk or floor salesperson it may be better to aim for a tenth of this.
Other professions in the Czech Republic pay a wide wage of wages. If you’re a manager of a restaurant you can make up to $6,500 per month, foreign language teachers make around $1,500, nurses get paid around $1,140, and, perhaps surprisingly, general care practitioners — aka doctors — only make around $2,400 per month — so the Czech Republic probably isn’t the place to go if you have big debt from going go med school.
Overall, the Czech Republic is a suitable place to make a living. For more on working around the world visit the Vagabond Journey Work Archive.
