Meet the international talent pool

Name: Noha Bayoumi

Country of origin: Egypt

Profession: Business analyst

“My husband and I both specialise in IT, and after coming here seven years ago we have found plenty of opportunities in our field. We find Luxembourg a very convenient place for both living and working. The diversity of languages is great: we work in English and French, and sometimes even in Arabic. It is funny that we meet so many cultures here. My kids are speaking five languages, which is very nice.”

“The work-life balance in Luxembourg is excellent – it is easy to finish work, disconnect and start with something else, and to keep a family life. It is easy to adapt here, which is something that we appreciate a lot. In addition to the dynamic IT sector, we have seen the multitude of opportunities in finance, so now we are inviting our friends with a finance background to come and join us here!”
