Answers

  • If you don’t want to end up in the gastronomy I suggest doing delivery (like Gorillas) or DHL, Pin should also be fine. At Decathlon they were so desperate to find new employers that they will probably accept also no-German speakers. Good luck.
  • Become a programmer – learn through YouTube tutorials.
  • Install Indeed app. To the search criteria write English.
  • Craigslist
  • Berlin Startup Jobs
  • Pet-sitting or check the co-tasker app for mini job offers.
  • Lieferando
  • Are you any good at social media? Try the startups for a job. Learn as much as you can on inbound marketing through the Hubspot Academy, they have free courses. You can then get a job as a trainee and work your way up. 
  • I work for a company called Sunshine Cleaning – we do cleaning jobs around the city in homes and also offices. They’re a really lovely company and you aren’t required to speak German.
  • Wolt? A lot of those guys don’t even speak English.
  • Factory worker (German: Produktionshelfer), no need to speak at all. Check out for Leihfirma.
  • Any coffee shop, no German is spoken in Berlin‘s coffee shops. Extra points if you speak Australian English, especially if you can pronounce properly „Flat White“.
  • Zalando
  • To find a part-time job without the German language is quite hard, but finally managed to find one (in a corporation kind of company) after 6 months of job hunting.
  • Depending on your skills, working as a freelancer remotely in your native language is a good option if you have a desk job.
  • Try delivery services like Wolt, Lieferando, Foodpanda, etc. They don’t require the mandatory language skills and most of them provide all the required equipment. They also pay well.
  • Try Zalando Lounge they are looking for English-speaking people.
  • englishjobs.de
  • I suggest checking LinkedIn. I personally don’t speak German that well and work for a Berlin-based company. So finding a part-time job without the German language is possible. In my company 98% of people are expats. If you research ad-tech, you will definitely find some openings. Apply for a job even if it’s full time… And then if they like you, maybe they can find something for you.
  • English language teacher at Berlitz Language Camps for Kids and Teens during German school holidays. Check out their website.
  • I worked at Kudos Health, German is not required, they actually look for more languages. It’s not much but it helps and you make your own time. Look them up and see if you can apply.
