In addition to the very recognizable brands you’ll have on your resume.
There is no catch or hidden information. Many big tech companies and other multinational corporations set up their customer support centers in Greece. They need native speakers in many languages to work five days a week for eight hours supporting their clients all over the world. In exchange, they are ready to offer you incredible experiences while working and living in beautiful Greece.
It can be anything, such as support Netflix users with their billing questions or support Google’s business clients on how to use Google Adwords to attract new clients. No worries, detailed job training will be provided.
You will find out during the recruitment process for which big tech company’s projects you will be working on.
In addition to competitive salary, bonuses, airfare and other benefits (that you can find below in the next question), you will be allowed to use famous tech company logos in your resume as a reference to your work experience (e.g. Google, Netflix, Microsoft, Samsung etc). Imagine an impact that those recognizable brands in your resume will have on your career growth!
1. Monthly net salary: between €850-€1200 net pending on the host company and project.
The best part: Every year, you will receive 14 paychecks, not just 12! That will increase your average net salary to over €1200 a month.
Note: This salary should not be compared to average salaries in your country as Greece has much lower cost of life. For more info check this out: https://www.numbeo.com/cost-of-living/rankings_current.jsp
Also, the offered salary is above average monthly net salary in Greece.
2. Paid hotel accommodation until you find a place you will call home (we will provide and pay an experienced real estate agent to help you with your home hunt).
3. Airline tickets to and from Greece
4. Medical insurance
5. Airport taxi pick-up upon your arrival in Athens or Thessaloniki

7. Five days’ work-week, 8 hours a day
8. 28 days paid vacation every year
9. Yearly complimentary return flight ticket for a vacation within the EU
10. Full cultural immersion: free Greek lessons, sports activities, cooking lessons, excursions around Greece and more
11. Career benefits: soft and hard skills training in addition to the very recognizable brand in your resume (e.g. Google, Facebook, Apple, Microsoft..).
It’s a rolling deadline. The program closes as soon as we receive enough candidates for each specific language. So you’d better hurry up!
Don’t worry if you can’t move to Greece in the next 2–3 months. You are free to choose the relocation date that suits you, but we advise you to apply as soon as possible.
At the moment, the programme is opened only for EU citizens.
As soon as we receive your application, we check whether you fulfill eligibility criteria mainly in terms of how native or close to native you are in your selected languages. We also evaluate your resume and motivation to participate in the Live It Greece program.
If you pass this initial screening, we arrange up to two brief calls as an introduction to the final interview with the company you are assigned to.
Those initial calls are friendly chats and the opportunity to meet you better as well as answer any questions you might have (that have not been answered here in the FAQ). Also, we use those two calls to share some interview tips that will be useful for you during the final interview with the company. So, you can see those two initial calls as with your allies who help you prepare for the final interview.
After those calls, you have the final interview with the assigned company. Usually they are very quick, and you receive their decision and offer letter within a week after the final interview (very often even within three working days). Enjoy the process that, hopefully, will be your best introduction to stunning Greece!
The minimum duration of the program is 6 months, but your chances of getting selected will be higher if you can stay longer. Don’t worry! You will fall in love with Greece and will be excited to stay much longer.
Sure, provided that the company (Teleperformance Greece) is happy with your performance, you can renew your contract as many times as you wish. There is potential upward career mobility included (please see the next question).
For professionals who plan on staying longer, there are opportunities for career progression. For the first period, everyone starts with customer support roles, supporting business or private clients of companies like Apple, Facebook, VW, Netflix, Microsoft, and more.
From the very first day, you have the opportunity to attend a variety of trainings in different fields, from management, soft skills, and technology to Greek language.
Then professionals are moved to supervisor roles, and further, there are plenty of career options within different job functions including human resources, management, finance, and strategy.
Imagine having one of these powerful brands like Netflix, Volkswagen, Microsoft, Philips, Facebook or Google? Also, during the program your host company is going to provide you with lots of practical training and skill-building activities.
When you take all that into account in addition to an unforgettable Greek experience, you can be sure you’ll be perfectly equipped for whatever future career you choose to follow.
Of course you will. You are guaranteed two days off per week + 28 days’ paid vacation every year.
Greece is a quite safe destination: The vast majority of people you interact with will be honest and helpful. According to the Crime Index by Numbeo, Greece is similarly as safe as countries like Canada, Norway or New Zealand and safer than countries like the US, Chile and Belgium.
If you follow general common sense for behaving in public and taking care of your personal belongings, you will be just fine.
This is probably the best program in the world when it comes to ease of moving abroad. If you’re selected and upon signing the job contract, you will be assigned an experienced HR manager who will work on your relocation to Greece.
That person books your airfare to Greece and arranges a taxi driver to wait on you at the airport and take you to your hotel where you will stay until your dedicated real estate agent finds you the place you call home. Above all, your dedicated HR person helps with any other assistance you might need before or after your arrival in Greece.
Sure! If you speak to some people older than 40 about things they regret not doing in their 20s, the most frequent answer for sure is travelling and experiencing foreign countries. Live It Greece is surely one of the most ideal opportunities to not only travel to a foreign country but also fully immerse yourself in the beautiful Greek culture.
The best part: Participation in the Live It Greece program won’t cost you anything, but you will be able to earn enough financial resources for a comfortable and enjoyable time in Greece (and maybe even save some money depending on your lifestyle).
In addition to experiencing Greece and Greek culture, you have the opportunity to meet colleagues from over 60 countries for a truly Greek and international experience.
Because of all the above reasons, we are confident to say this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to acquire experiences that will enrich your 20s and be remembered throughout your entire life (and surely benefit your career as well).
Don’t regret anything didn’t do in your 20s! Apply now here! Welcome to Greece!
