As a writer from the US looking to move to Europe, would I have a better chance applying to agencies in The UK or someplace where being a native English speaker is less common, like France?

Apart from the agency how will you be legal to work?

The UK market is so large I think you'd have better luck there. I just moved and got a job before landing. I searched throughout the rest of Europe but found most writing opportunities require you to be bilingual. If you're really keen on not being in the UK I'd say try and make some contacts before landing who know where there's a need for English speaking writers. I think red sofa helps creatives move to Berlin.

If the point in non English speaking countries is to create ads for local market, then being a native English speaker won't be any advantage even if less common. I think you need to focus on searching where and/or for what opportunity native English speakers are needed vs. a specific location being the driver.

Any chance you do medical/healthcare?

McCann is always looking for writers!

Not a medical/healthcare writer

Best agencies in Europe (Germany, France, Sweden) also hire US and English CW. Very common.

Did I mess up my first round? Recruiter set up team match call. I haven’t had any other interviews. I didn’t have much in the description so focused my initial interest on program management (that was the title of the interviewer). Turns out role is more strat and ops. I have experience in both (more strat) but interviewer said to think on where I want to focus as he has openings for both types of roles. I’m worried I messed up because I said I wanted to do program management…

They were very tactical and felt more like middle managers without vision. The latter two seem to have grown up in the company (3-4 years)
