Dorota

Year of arrival to the UK: 2005

Motivation: professional – promoted to the regional office in an international bank; private – to create for her son an opportunity to experience different cultures, to broaden his horizons, and to give him the chance to learn English

Education: higher, completing a PhD in Management in a Polish higher institution

Employment history upon arrival: promoted in different companies within the finance sector

Current occupation: manager; socially – President of the Polish City Club, an organisation for Polish professionals in Great Britain

Close friends: both Polish and English

Family status: has a teenage son

Housing situation: owns a house

Advantages from living in the UK:
”Great Britain, and London especially is extremely multicultural.”
”London for me was always the prime location – or New York though far reaching – because it is the finance capital of the world.”
”Here everything is structured. English people are very righteous and that is fantastic.”

Disadvantages:

”The all pervading multiculturalism results in the fact, that sooner or later one feels the need to go back to their roots.”
”We do not take advantage of the fact that there are so many of us here – hence the importance of organisations which integrate Polish communities.”
”English people do not want to solve some problems, they rely on procedures. And that sometimes can be an obstacle.”

Future plans: depending on career life:
to stay in Great Britain, return to Poland, travel to New York or Singapore
