If you are a non-EU resident who wishes to work in Poland, you must first obtain a work permit. The work permit you receive is only good for one job, and you can only use it to complete the tasks listed on your application form. You would need to apply for a new work permit if you change jobs. A work permit is only valid for three years.
Your employer is responsible for obtaining a work permit on your behalf.

Work permits are issued by a local “voivode” (government land head) and are issued for the duration of stay needed to perform the work stated in the declaration of your employer. You need to sign an employment contract with the employer that applied for your permit to make the work permit valid.
