For example:

https://service.berlin.de/dienstleistung/324282/en/

You cannot register for PR. PR is acquired after five years in the country under EU rules of free movement. Your spouse needs to apply for a residence card for family members of EU nationals. After five years (of you exercising treaty rights) he can then apply for a permanent residence card.

An employment contract (and a salary slip and a bank statement showing the amount going into your account) would make things a lot easier.

Your spouse can apply for a residence card while you are a jobseeker. The caseworker may make the decision to grant your spouse a residence card on the spot. However, they can take up to six moths to process the application, so they can decide not to take a decision on the day of application, sit on it until 90 days have passed since you moved to Germany and then contact you asking for evidence of health insurance, exercising treaty rights, etc.

At that point, Germany takes the view that being a jobseeker has to 'have a reasonable basis of expected future success in obtaining employment'.

What's your skill set/professional experience? How good is your German?

Germany has a different system. As far as I know, even the big four ask their foreign-trained staff to also get a German accounting qualification.

Admin officer is a job that highly relies on language. Are you considering to take a job outside of this field?

To be very honest, Berlin is full of new arrivals both from the EU and further afield, most with limited German, so competition for jobs that do not require fluent German will be fierce.

Any specific reason as to why Berlin?

If the marriage certificate is from an EU country, translation by a certified translator will be fine but if it's from a non-EU country, they can and will ask for apostille.
