Hello Ex Reg

Thanks for the reply at least one... Sorry not getting you? Have I done something silly?

Ex Reg, you naughty man

Hey Jimmy, I think Ex Reg is referring to the fact that there's a separate sub-forum for Malaysia under Far East. New forums are a bit confusing, aren't they, then you get these sarcastic buggers making fun I'll see if I can get one of the Concierges to move this thread to Malaysia sub-forum.

I live in Malaysia but not a clue about the construction industry nor work for that matter. I am early-retired. I would imagine that most companies would be looking for Malaysian citizens? But best of luck with your research.

Much as I liked working in Malaysia, and I did, I enjoyed HK more, and not just because the dosh was that much better.

Construction jobs in Malaysia are there but difficult to find unless a UK company is involved.

There is some double tracking of the main NS railway line if you like railway work, I did. Even if you don't you might try railpersonel.com for a a range of jobs in the FE and ME.

Balfour Beatty are involved in some construction work in the region so you could give them a ring.
A few other companies you might try after googling addresses etc are:
Gammon HK
Sui On HK
Gammon Singapore (diff company to the one above these days but same name)
Leighton Construction an Australian company involved in the FE region.

A few others would normally come to mind but watching the Heineken Cup and imbibing a few so the memory is not quite what it was.

Jimmy/James, looks like it's only Mods who can shift threads so I'm going to hit that little alert button in the corner and see if someone can shift it. Anyhow, Ex Reg put some good info there Best of luck
