    Salary Comparisons

    Ive heard some people saying that a direct exchange rate conversion is the wrong way to assess a salary (obviously you need to also consider cost of living differences either way) - whats peoples thoughts on this - see that many people say its far less than the converted amount in reality. Hope that makes sense!

    Grocery Comparisons

    People are always asking the cost of groceries compared to the UK so being such a helpful aldo i bring you this Comparing grocery prices - Today Tonight the thanks button is at the bottom on the right :cute:
  4. Don't know if anyone has done some research on this in the past, but what salaries would you say are comparable between the UK and say Melbourne/Sydney? i.e. say you earned £50k in the UK and took off taxes, NI etc what would you need to earn in Oz to have the same income after taxes/super etc? Have to take into account living expenses, private medical costs and the rest of it i guess... Cheers all
  5. Hi everyone Medicals arrived in Oz on 14th December so just waiting for the magic email now Thought this may be useful. I was given the following cost of living comparisons from a recruitment agent at Michael Page. It would be interesting if anyone already in Oz agrees or disagrees with it. To maintain a similar standard of living: If you Earn … £ in the UK You will need to earn ….$ in Australia £25,000 $44,200 £30,000 $53,000 £35,000 $62,000 £40,000 $70,500 £45,000 $79,400 £50,000 $88,200 £55,000 $97,000 £60,000 $105,880 £65,000 $114,700 £70,000 $123,500 £75,000 $132,300 £80,000 $141,200 £85,000 $150,000 £90,000 $158,800 £95,000 $167,600 £100,000 $176,500 Hope it helps anyone planning a move.
