      Stay where you are??

      With all this doom and gloom about, if you have a decent job either in UK or Oz is there any point in moving?? You could be out of the frying pan into the fire. Obviously we all know the unemployment rate in the UK is at a 19 year high but Oz is not immune.

      If you have a decent job and can still pay the mortgage off you may want to stay put wherever you maybe.
      Something to think about.

      I couldn't agree with this post more. As someone who left a perfectly good job and life in the UK to move to OZ, then two years later left what I now see to be an equally good life/job to move back to an awful situation in the UK, if you are happy with what you have it doesn't seem worth it to make the move the way things are at the moment.

      Sometimes you have to take a step back to move forward when you move .. I went from being in a senior position in the UK to a junior one here in Aus, applied for the opportunities that arose and worked my way back to a similar position. The reality is that you may not be able to walk right into a like for like job either moving here or returning to the UK
      I just want PIO to be a happy place where people are nice to each other and unicorns poop rainbows

      I would not contemplate moving back to UK / Europe at this particular moment in time. But never say never.

      I think its about what you want out of life. I would personally prefer to move from a good job in the UK, to a lower job and work up here in Australia because Australia is where we want to be and retire and raise children, however, it is not for everyone.

      Its a chance some are willing to take and others are not and some will pay off and some will not, just like life.
      You may also loose your job in the Uk 12 mths down the line. nothing is certain in life. it is up to us in what chances we want to take.
      If you LOVE life in the UK and have a great job, great lifestyle then do not move, expecially if you cannot accept you may find yourself in the opposite position. If however your willing to do whatever it takes and find the lifestyle here is for you and the gamble is worth it, then life is too short to not try.
