Mariusz

Year of arrival to the UK: 2007

Motivation: worked in Kazakhstan, wanted to be closer to family

Education: higher, IT specialist

Employment history upon arrival: work within the IT sector

Current occupation: owns a company which offers services to celebrities

Close friends: Poles

Family status: a Polish fiancé met in the London, grandparents living in Poland
Housing situation: owns an apartment with a mortgage

Advantages from living in the UK:
”Whatever you do here, there are state organisations, even average officials help for free.”
“Here you go to the HM Revenue and Customs and the official there actually advices you what to do to pay less tax.”
“The financial stability is incredible. You can perform unskilled labour and still live with dignity, and buy a house.”

Disadvantages:

“You need to expect that at the beginning you never earn a lot of money. But after three years expect decent earnings.”
“Family stays abroad. We have to reckon with the fact, that we cannot be home during every holiday.”
“I will not say that I feel at home here. I am aware that one day I can be told: sorry, you came from Poland, you are not British. And because of that, for instance my business will suffer.”

Future plans:
to return to Poland, if the conditions to run a business improve
