How does moving to Salzburg work? Do I need to bring anything to do the job?

Relocation to KISKA’s Salzburg headquarters is personalised. Whether you’re an intern, or full-time. Our HR team supports the transition to Austria. They’ll guide you through the visa process, help you open a bank account, and register for health insurance. Flexible hours help accommodate such administration tasks. Special leave for moving and other life events mean you won’t have to use your guaranteed holiday hours for anything but having a good time. In-house German classes and doctor visits make integrating into life in Austria a little bit easier.

You will find everything needed to do the job in KISKA’s 5,900 m2 studio. Including equipment, programs, materials and technology. For interns, HR arranges housing and it is often quite close the KISKA studio. The studio has laundry and cooking facilities, making it a cool place to hang outside of working hours. While you are here, consider KISKA your home away from home.
