That would be me

The networking / telecomms industry in the UK is quite strong at the moment for the right people. Put your CV on Monster and that should get some attention.

There are several other search engines that I can recommend you try, such as:

http://www.jobsite.co.uk/
http://www.gisajob.co.uk/

I hope you get where you want to be

Jai,

I am British and started in the Telecom Industry back in 1976 when I joined Cable & Wireless as Foreign Service (F1) Staff, having completed a 4 year Electronic Engineering Apprenticeship with the MOD before that.

There does not seem to be much Employer loyalty to their staff these days, even if you have worked for them over 10 years or more?

I never had problems finding jobs in the Telecom Industry in the UK. My last job was a Senior System Engineer working for an American company, with an office in Bracknell. I enjoyed working for that company - trips abroad, company car and decent salary (£35K back in 1996).

They offered me a promotion to Engineering Manager - Asia Pacific, based in Hong Kong, with a salary of US$80K + sales commission bonus of 20%+.

I took this job and it literally changed my life! I met a Filipina girlfriend and got a divorce for a start - not too much wrong with that from my viewpoint as far as happiness goes. Financially it was a bad move - should have waited till my daughter was at least 18!

The Telecom Recession is what really changed my life! For the first time in my life I had lost my job. The American company that had sent me out to Hong Kong, decided to close their Asia Pacific Regional Office down. All of us in that Hong Kong office lost our jobs due to the Telecom recession.

Jai, I dont suppose you can read and write Chinese - Putonghua (Mandarin)?

No I cant either, although I did start to learn to speak some Putonghua. It never progressed since we hired a Systems Engineer in Beijing, who naturally being Chinese could read, write and speak it fluently as well as being OK in English. His salary was 1/3 that of Hong Kong Chinese System Engineer!

I should have continued to learn Putonghua, regardless of the company decision. There are a lot of job opportunities in China in Telecomms if you can reasonably speak and understand Putonghua.

My advice is for you to learn Chinese! It will definately improve job prospects in the Telecomms industry, provided you dont mind working in China?

If it's a waste of my time applying for a job in the UK, what chance do you have? Sorry I dont mean to sound 'superior' here, it's just a statement of fact since there are many engineers who lost jobs during the telecom recession.

I looked at jobs in this industry during a visit to UK in April last year. Sure there were SOME job vaccancies that I was more than qualified for with over 30 years experience, but most of these were only offering pay of about £25,000 - some 30% less than I was getting paid back in 1976!

My other problem is I got used to being out of work, and living here in Cebu, Philippines - a tropical Paradise.

I guess I just opted out the Rat Race of trying to find another job. I went with early retirement instead!

I guess you are too young to consider this (I am 50, - how old are you)?

Sorry this posting is not a job offer, but I signed up with Monster Jobs and many others and was getting lots of job opportunities in Hong Kong and China - provided I was fluent speaking Mandarin (Putonghua).

Cheers
David Whittall - I. Eng MIEEE (retired)!
