In Europe, Belgium is one of the cheaper countries for renting or buying a home. Countries such as France, Great Britain,Germany, Spain, and Ireland are all more expensive. So although the minimum salaries in Belgium and Ireland are higher compared to the minimum wage in Belgium, you likely will end up saving more money living and working in Belgium.
Even when comparing the different capitals, Belgium scores well. Only Berlin is cheaper than in Brussels.

Although Belgium is part of the wealthiest regions in the world looking to GDP per capita, living there is not as expensive as it may seem.

This minimum wage is slightly lower than the minimum wage of the Netherlands (1635.60 euros) and Ireland (1656.20 euros).

In Belgium for example it takes overall from a year to get a permanent contract.

In a relatively short time, you can get to know what type of job or working environment fits you best and what you really would like to do.

The three official languages in Belgium are Flemish, French, and German. The most prominent language in Belgium, counting the percentage of the population that can hold a conversation in this language, is Flemish, with 55%. Followed by a 40% of population who speak french and actually a higher number of the population can hold a conversation in English with a 52%. Although speaking Flemish will help you build up a career in Belgium, there is no need to speak Flemish to get a job there. In big cities such as Brussels and Antwerp, almost anyone speaks English. Roughly one-third of the inhabitants of the Brussels Capital Region are not Belgian citizens, and over 50 percent have foreign roots. So in more prominent companies, it’s becoming common to communicate in English.
52% of the total Belgium population, from whom most of them are younger, can hold a conversation in English. In France, f.e. just 39% of the French people that can have a conversation in English. English becomes the primary communication language on the work floor as well for young Belgium, specially in a country whose half its population has a language barrier, this makes english the perfect middle ground for communication. Less young Belgium can communicate in either French or Flemish. So English is becoming the language that unites foreigners with Belgium but as well the language that unites both Belgium sides.
If you can make yourself clear in English, Robin will be able to find a job for you in Belgium.
