Question !preciouses please help DH needs 2 negotiate - What is a good amount of money/salary?

Preciouses - please help. My DH has an interview next week for a job in Dubai.WHen negotiating his salary, do you have any advice? It is for an HR Manager, no salary was indicated in the ad...

How much is reasonable? We would need:

Salary to support both of us (plus an extra min $2,000AUS per month for our mortgage back home too). Note: we are not extravagent in our living

A min 2bdrm - 3bdrm townhouse/unit in an area good for children.

Transport (1 or 2 cars would be good)

Phone for DH

Medical

Plane tickets for all of us

Also- if schooling is included, what are the rules? Do you have to use this money on schooling (say I choose to homeschool?)

Your wonderful opinions would be most appreciated

Love Rachel xox

You can also try posting your query on the Expatwoman Website and they have a special chat forum for Dubai and I am sure you will get loads of replies there too.

I have a friend who is an HR Manager, she was employed locally so doesn't receive all the extra benefits that would be on offer to you. She gets 25k a month. Hope that helps.
