Salary Comparison

    Recommended Posts

    Hi

    I have had word back today from a second interview I had on Monday and it seems they are interested in me!!

    All they have said is that the role would pay in the region of $90K (£37K) can anyone shed any light on salary levels?

    Also what are the income tax levels in Oz?

     

    Cheers

    Hi there

    If you have just had a telephone interview (saw your last post about Electranet) and now had a second telephone interview, it might be worth having a chat with other people about the type of work you do. If you are in that much demand with one company, it might be good to know about others.

     

    When do you plan to come over?

     

    I have just had a chat with one of my colleagues (I work for Talant2) who has done a bit of work for them and rates them well. Once you have a job here, it is easy enough to get another one if it's not right once you are here.

     

    Feel free to PM me if you want to run past the type of work you do - I might be able to give you a salary guide then about your skills.

     

    As someone has previously mentioned, clarify if it is $90k base or TAP - also, what other benefits are included - super, can you top up, mobile phone, car/parking, holiday entitlement and when you can start taking it, etc.

     

    Good luck

    Sas

    $90k, I would have snapped their hand off, agents have told me if I can find job, the best I can hope for is $40k:shocked:. I have also asked about unskilled work and was told I would be looking at about $17 per-hour which may not too bad if I have little or no rent and no kids.

     

    But I think the old sayings hold here just the same as anywhere;

    • It's easier to get a job if you’re in one
    • It’s not what you know but who you know

     

    Good luck;)

    Well it seems ElectraNet do not want me:sad:

    They had a domestic candidate apply also, so they have to offer the post to him before offering it to an international candidate., even though I had a better skills set than him.

    On the brighter side, they are still interested and have some people retiring next year so there is hope yet!

    Hi Laura

    I'm not too bothered, I don't think the door is closed completely, I had a call from their HR department this morning saying that they may have other opportunities coming up next year.

    I am in Downend in Bristol, I have lived here since 1998 but originally from Northamptonshire.

     

    Cheers

    ...I am in Downend in Bristol...

     

    Know it well ;-) We moved over from Bristol last year; Longwell Green to be exact but Bradley Stoke before that (and 4/5 years in Holland). Not originally from Bristol either but it's a great city, as is neighbouring Bath.

     

    I'm with the other guys - you can live VERY comfortably over here on $90k, with or without super on top.
