  2. Hi, My husband was approached by one of the Big 4 for a role at their Sydney office - He was made an offer this morning of $120K a year plus bonus (unknown currently) and relocation package (which we think is low) and we intend to try and negotiate. We have been looking at living out of the CBD e.g. Kellyville, Baulkham Hills, Liverpool so hoping for lower rents but my question is do you think this salary is doable for a family of four? I don't intend to work for the first 3 months to get the kids settled (5 and 3 year old) and don't want to feel rushed into doing so either. The recruitment agency in Sydney (who have been very good) keep saying that we shouldn't compare to the UK but it's hard as we both have a combined salary of £100K here in the UK (hubby on £55K) so have a comfortable life. We have used salary calculators and budget planners and we do seem to have the a similar surplus to the UK but still unsure as we are not physically there. Any advice would be greatly received. Thanks Marc.
  3. Hi community Thank you for accepting me to this forum, amazing topics over here. I have been offered a job in Sydney with 100.000$ (QA Engineer 7 years experience) as a yearly gross salary. Is it enough for a good living, taking in consideration : - Married and wife is not working. - Have to travel to Spain twice a year for family and parents visit. - Be able to save some money and do some activities over the weekend. I've seen the renting prices are high, what do you think ? Thank you for the help

  6. Hi I've searched online and can't seem to find an Australian calculator online for working out pro-rata salaries. I've been researching many part time roles and they all state 0.6/0.8 (etc..) FT equivalent. There's a really helpful pro rata UK salary online however I just can't find one for Australia. Does anyone know where I could find this? Thanks.
  7. Hi, I have over ten years of experience in software development in London. I understand that the software market hubs in Australia are in Melbourne and Sydney. Sydney is more expensive than Melbourne and I know that salaries in Sydney are higher but as a new migrant I suspect that even on a permanent residency visa and good prospects of advancement in the future I will not initially get a salary that is competitive for my experience (which would also allow me to live comfortably and save). What are your thoughts? I have worked years in London to be in the salary bracket that I am and I'm not sure I'll get an equivalent salary on my first job in Australia. If that is the case would I - Be better off in Melbourne where the cost of living is smaller while I work my way up salarywise? - Be earning a salary in the same ballpark as in Sydney (if new skilled migrants generally earn less at first?) Thanks

    Salaries UK v AUS

    Hi all, When reading posts most people mention that "salaries are higher in Australia" but while some salaries may be 4x higher wile another might only be marginay higher or even lower. I think it would help the many of prospective migrants who come on this forum if they could find some info about their profession as opposed to a blanket statement. Plus I am curious myself as to which jobs enjoy the biggest increase! I appreciate its personal info that many people will not want to divulge. It would help to say where both are/were as regions have an impact in both countries. Ignore exchange rates as they change all the time, and costs of living is a totally different topic and will vary massively depending on situations and lifestyle choices. Please include super in Australian salaries as it will be your money one day. I'll get the ball rolling: Accountant: UK (London): 40,000 GBP AUS (Melbourne): 75,000 AUD
  9. Hi All, Just a quick brief; I am a QS with over 7 years experience mainly in infrastructure, and have just moved to Sydney (landed a week ago). I have an 2nd interview for a construction consultancy firm (in infrastructure) on Friday (today is Tuesday) and I've just had a call to query if I would consider taking a Contract/Freelance position, to which I said I would look into it and discuss this further on Friday. I was initially looking for a permanent position but since I have just moved and I am looking for work, I may take this until something comes up. Does anyone know what is the going rate per hour is if I were to take a freelance role instead of permanent? Any thoughts or advice on the matter, including the rates are appreciated.

    Emigrating on your own

    Hi, I'm new to the forum and have been reading threads with great interests. I'm hoping to come over to OZ late this year/early next year from the UK. Currently in the midst of saving, I have good qualifications (Masters degree and professional quals in the IT industry) plus a good few years experience since graduation. So I'm relatively hopeful of securing a job once I get over there. The average salary for the job I want to do vary depending on location and serior positions etc, but I'll probably be aiming for the jobs around the 65k-85k mark. The main question is moving over on my own (completely, don't know anyone over there) Would this wage be livable for someone in mid/late-twenties in the Brisbane area, however the locations of Sydney and Melbourne are also of interest basically following the work. As I would need rent, rates, food, car, social life to meet people etc. The move is pretty much to try and kick my career to the next level, whilst simultaneously seeing some of the world and you never know I might even meet "the one" over there and never return back. Also has anyone else made the move entirely on their own? The prospect is quite daunting, I'm hoping the risk is worth the reward. I'm not expecting it to be a utopia by any stretch of the imagination and solving all of lifes problems but better weather, seemingly better job prospects by all accounts (from the North of England) and an experience which I feel has to be tried so as to not regret anything later in life. If it doesn't work out I can always return to the UK without the "What if" forever burning away at me.
  11. Hi Guys, I'm Matt and new to this site. I'm 28 and at a point in my life where a change is necessary and I've decided to take the plunge and do something I have always wanted to to and emigrate to Australia. I have worked around SE Asia and the be based in a fabulous country like Australia and have the flexibility to holiday in SE Asia seems like heaven to me. I work in a Sales role for a large international Valve and Instrumentation comany that works heavily in the Oil and Gas industry and there is a position avaliable to me in Perth. The company is paying for my Visa and initial travel but thats as far as it goes and this is not a secondment - it is a permenant posisition so no relocation help etc. A guy from my hometown in Liverpool is taking over the business as Director and he would like me to work with him in Sales. I've been offered a 1st year basic of 65k but the OTE with commission should be 110-130k. There is also a car allowance of 20k on my salary to purchase my own vehicle for company use (the company at present own their employees company cars but are keen to get away from this due to fees and taxes involved for the company so are offereing the 20k subsidy). I am looking to move in March 2014 and I'm coming over on my own and I am single guy. My first obvious question is, is this a comfortable wage? I only have around £6k in the bank to assist with rental bonds etc and no other assets. I currently earn around £55k + car (28k salasry + commission) in the UK per year which gives me a nice life with a few holidays a year. I know there is the 2.5 x rule but at present a lot of my money goes on drinking out in the local pub which is something I am keen to stray away from in Aus as there will be a lot more I can spend my time and money on. To me the move is more than money and mainly around lifestyle but obviously money is very important. My next question to get me started is around nice places to live. I do not want to be right in the city but would like to have good access to it including nice resturaunts and some nightlife so I can meet new people. I know this is pretty vague but any suggestions are very welcome which will allow me to embark on my research a little further. I am going to have to rent fully furnished and would like some outside space for bbqs with 2 or more bedrooms. You answers are very much appreciated - I will be back on for a lot more help in the coming months so I will keep this forum ticking along with questions don't worry I look forward to hearing from you all. Thanks, Matt
  12. Hi I am looking into moving to Australia and was wondering what a Satellite TV Installer typically earns in a year in Australia ? Cheers Lee
  13. Hello there, Thanks for reading. I'm new to the site and looking for advice as I really don't know anyone to ask here in Oz or back home. So here goes... I was offered a job on a 457 last year when I was living in the UK.. I've been here 6 months and the company is doing well, its a small team of 5 and I think they had been struggling but things have really taken off this year. I've just been for a quarterly review and they've offered me a small salary increase, which is great, but also the chance to buy into the company. Now I have no idea how this works, who to speak to etc and wanted to know if there was anyone here with experience willing to share their knowledge/advice. In a nutshell this is the offer: a.20% of the company at a value of $200K being $40K. b.Payment would be $5,000 down and the balance to come out of commissions and/or dividends over 3 years. c.If I decide to leave then the company buy back shares at same price less what was not paid. If the shares are paid off and I decided to leave after 3 years, they'd buy back at market price less 25% discount payable over 3 years d.If in 3 years I want to buy more, they'd value the company and I'd get a discount of 25% on the buy in price. e.A shareholders agreement will be prepared to reflect conditions to protect both parties Now it's great to be asked to be further involved with the company and I do think it's something i'd consider, but not sure if this is a good deal or not and what sort of questions i should be asking. For example how did they reach a $200k valuation, is it normal to buy back LESS 25% over 3 years etc etc. They've also offered a $15k car allowance OR novated lease as part of my salary package. Is this normal. What's the difference between an allowance and a novated lease? Sorry for all the questions, i looked through the FAQ's and couldn't see anything related to this particular issue, but if there is feel free to point me in the right direction. many thanks in advance.
  14. So I think its fair to say that a hot topic at the minute seems to be the cost of living - be it either the UK or Oz! My query is slightly related to this in that I'm not sure how much we should budget for rent and eventually a mortgage when living in Oz. We are moving to Melbourne in June with our two boys who will be 6 & 7, although it adds pressure to the move we want to at least try to get it right first time, we don't want to have to move the boys from school to school just coz of our to our lack of planning! To start off with I will be the sole earner on about $80k (with the potential to rise to about $120k in a few years time). We want (as I'm sure many others do!) to live in the best area we can afford, with a good school(s) close by and we also need to be able to afford to rent and eventually buy there. In the UK we spend around 21% of our joint (gross) income on our rent, is it safe to assume we can do the same in Oz or would we be way off the mark? I know there are so many variables to this but how do we know where to start looking if we don't know what we can afford!?!?!

    What will 55,000 give you?

    Hi, I have been in and around job search sites like Seek, Careerone, and MyCareer and learned that most junior or jobs in my field of electronics begin with a salary of 55k a year. Recently, my 175 visa was granted and I plan to land in Melbourne this August. If I choose to live 25 minutes away from the CBD, rent a room for myself, and hope to have all bills inclusive of the rent. how much rent should I be expecting? how much will 55k a year give me extra after taxes and expenses? I don't go out and if I do, It'll be just once a week or every other week. I will be mostly cooking for my meals and may eat out during lunch, not fancy, just fast food maybe. Any ideas are greatly appreciated.
  16. Hi folks! I wonder, how much money is being paid in taxes in OZ? According to my brief investigation (mostly from the internet), I've concentrated it in the list below.However it seems a bit strange to me and I'll explain why.. According to my knowledge (again - internet and people who I speak to in OZ), the standard of living is very high in OZ. And by saying that I mean the quality and availability of employment, poverty rate, hours of work required to purchase necessities, number of vacation days per year, affordable (or free) access to quality healthcare, quality and availability of education, cost of goods and services, economic and political stability and more... Considering the above, the taxes not seem to be very high comparing to the taxes in Scandinavian countries for example, which also offer a very high standard of living but the taxes there are much higher. Partly due to high social security payments (which as far as I understand does not even exist in OZ??). Could someone review the below list and correct me if I miss anything? If the below is correct, I'd be interested to find an explanation for this difference. So the first and the most significant - Personal Income Tax. Which is described pretty simple in the below table: [TABLE=width: 500] [TR] [TD]Taxable income[/TD] [TD]Tax on this income[/TD] [TD]Effective tax rate[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]0-6K$[/TD] [TD]-[/TD] [TD]0%[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]6K$-37K$[/TD] [TD]15c for each $1 over $6,000[/TD] [TD]0 – 12.6%[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]37K$-80K$[/TD] [TD]$4,650 plus 30c for each $1 over $37,000[/TD] [TD]12.6 – 21.9%[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]80K$-180K$[/TD] [TD]$17,550 plus 37c for each $1 over $80,000[/TD] [TD]21.9 – 30.3%[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]180K$ and over[/TD] [TD]$54,550 plus 45c for each $1 over $180,000[/TD] [TD]30.3 – less than 45%[/TD] [/TR] [/TABLE] Capital gains tax - this one is obviously irrelevant for those who does not have any investments into capital assets. Goods and Services Taxes - Regular VAT (value added tax), which is 10% of most supplied goods and services. Property Taxes and Excise Taxes - those are the taxes for certain property (usually commercial and hence seems to irrelevant?) and taxes for goods like cigarettes, alcohol, fuel etc... Now that seems to be just it. So if we take, for example, a salary of 60K$ a year, the overall tax will be 4,650+0.3*(60,000-37,000)=11550$, which is just below 20%! Then if I add here the VAT, the overall tax will build up to ~30%, as far as I see it.. Which again - is not much.. Will be happy to get some replies here. Thanks! Eugene
  17. Hi everyone, I am given the opportunity to work in Gladstone as electrical engineer for managing projects in a plant. I have visited the place few days ago and love the quiet and relaxed atmosphere. My plan would be to move with my wife and our 2 children (7 and 9 years old). I have received a job offer based on a 457 Visa which the company would pay. The company would also pay the relocation cost as follow: - Shipment from Europe - Travel for the whole family in economy flight - One time allowance for the settlement, corresponding to one month salary - 1 month hotel accomodation The salary would be: Base salary before tax: 142'200.- Superannuation : 12'800.- Gladstone booming factor : 6850.- Total: 161'850.- No car allowance Medical insurance for one year only, then at our charge. Is that a good offer for a 40 year old engineer? Will I be able to save some money once the monthly paiment done? Thanks a lot for your support
  18. Hi, I know this is a bit of a big question but we were wondering how much you need to earn to have a reasonably quality of life in Brisbane? (I know it's probably a difficult question to ask!!). We have 3 children (2,4 and 5 years) and we would probably want to live in a nice area and have a comfortable standard of living, run two cars and be able to afford a few luxuries. We keep hearing lots about how the lost of living is a lot more over there so we're just a bit worried that if we moved over there we'd be worse off financially. My husband would be the only one working. I know it's very tricky to say but does anyone have any ideas how much he would need to be earning in Aus dollars? Many thanks for your help in advance.:biggrin:
  19. Hi all, new to this site though have been reading posts all day! My boyfriend and I are thinking of going to WA for a few years, as we have heard there are great opportunities if you are willing to work hard/in a mine, and we could both do with a change. Any help on the following would be much appreciated as we are only just starting to do our research - a lot to learn!! 1) Realistically, can unskilled/inexperienced people get a good mining job? We have heard so, but are not convinced! My partner is 27 and physically fit, but no experience. 2) What visa options are there for us? We are both mid twenties, but neither of us do a job on the In Demand list. He has a degree in Business Management and I am a PR/Communications Officer for a local authority, but have no degree. We know we could probably get a working holiday visa, but this means we could only work for an employer for up to 6 months max and I assume this would hugely limit our opportunities to get good, settled jobs. Perhaps I could apply as an Office Manager, but although I manage my department, I don't manage any staff! HELP - not sure if we are being very unrealistic to think we could get out there for 2 years and be able to work hard, play hard and maybe save some money! thanks x 3)

    Cost of Living

    Hi Everyone From some of the threads I’ve read, people on here are very helpful in replying to individuals questions. This is my first thread so be gentle but I want to ask the group what salary scale would provide an average life. Firstly I know that’s extremely subjective so let me give a few more details. I want to move out to Perth or Melbourne, with my wife (who currently cannot work) and 4 year old daughter. Not looking for the moon-on-a-stick here, just a small car, medical cover, rented apartment with 2-3 rooms and enough money to put clothes on our back, occasional travel to NZ (extended family) and semi-private child care. I’m a scientist (post-doc) so will probably be based near one of the Universities. Any info you guys and gals can give would help out a long way. I’ll try and check back often enough in case you need more details. Thanks p.s I heard you have a thing called ‘Sun’ over there. Being from Ireland the ‘huge fiery ball in the sky’ has taken on a near mythical property, since its departure behind 3km of black cloud. Can you confirm whether or not you need to wear three heavy jumpers in mid-summer?:cool:
  21. Hi Can anyone let me know what the average salary would be for a construction manager/site manager? I am an experienced project manager but because I do not have a degree I need to apply as a Building Associate! There I am expecting that I will need to drop down to site manager level but need to know how much that will pay to determine if it will be worth going. Also are there plenty of opportunities in WA for site managers?:wacko:

    UK Salary Guide?

    Does anyone know of a reliable source to find out UK salary guide?
  23. Help someone please !!!!!!!!!!!:confused: I'm trying to fill in my centrelink application and am stuck on the section for payments :- Reportable fringe benefits. Is fringe benefits different to my salary packaging. Nothing is very clear and I have got myself all in a muddle. Is being allowed so much toward my uniforms a fringe benefit or is this just used when it comes to tax forms at the end of the year. I dont have a company car or anything like this. Any help would be much appreciated x Helen

    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!
