Moving Allowance

Moving to a new country can be a bit of a rollercoaster ride. We’re here to support you. Our main goal is to make sure your move is as smooth and hassle-free as possible. We’ve got a couple of ways to help you out. First off, LIS offers a relocation allowance to give you a little extra cushion. And we’ve got those travel tickets sorted for both you and your dependents.
Our super-friendly HR team, who’ve seen it all, are here to lend a hand with all the paperwork and official stuff. They’ll have you checking off all the administrative to-dos in no time!


We firmly believe that health is our most precious asset. Investing in the health of our staff is an investment in our collective success. That is why, from the very first day of employment, we sign up all our employees for a supplementary company health insurance in addition to their individual statutory health insurance, which is free of charge
to our staff.
The company health insurance goes beyond the ordinary health insurance coverage, reimbursing 90% of the costs for dentures, inlays, implants, and orthodontics. In addition, each of our team members is entitled to an annual budget of €900, which can be utilized for a wide range of healthcare services, including dental cleaning and bleaching, visual aids, surgical corrections of visual acuity, natural therapies, prescribed medicines, remedies and aids, and preventative extended
healthcare measures, screenings and check-ups.
LIS employees have the option to extend the company health insurance to their family members, with the insurance company
offering an attractive financial package for such extensions.


Thanks to our partnership with Corporate Benefits, our employees enjoy access to a portal offering attractive deals from renowned international, national, and regional suppliers as well as premium trade partners.
These offers are updated and expanded on a monthly basis. Access to these exclusive deals is guaranteed anytime and anywhere, accessible through any internet-capable device.

When we had a teacher decide to take another job in mid-July, we were left with few options. Historically, it was a tough position to fill. Within 24 hours of posting the position on Schrole, we were able to offer a contract to a more-qualified educator.
