PR status

I landed about 3 years ago in Canada and have or am about to lose the PR status. I have no interest in Canada whatsoever, therefore will it be possible if required, to visit Canada as an ordinary...

Re: NOVA SCOTIA BACK TO UK

Admittedly Canada is not cheap. But you will lose money in the first couple of months as set up costs. There is no getting away from that fact. Only giving it three weeks is a little premature and...

Re: About to land

Well he may / may not make the move. But I guess it is still worth completing the Landing just in case he decides to go. :unsure: Yes he does have a family. Education runs out after the age of 18, so...

Well to be fair, mine took 2 years or so and I found it difficult to engage what the level of a typical salary might be simply because Canadian employers will not talk to you. However, the indication...

About to land

Good luck to my friend who lands in Vancover, Canada over the next few days. Mind you I have had to advise him how crap the salaries are for our profession in Canada, which has put a bit of a damper...

Re: UK vs UAE salary (offers)

It really depends on what you spend your money on and how. But overall if your UK salary after tax is the same as your overeas salary plus housing then you probably would be better off considering...

Re: I've just been offered a job in Abu Dhabi!!!

I would push for a bit more too. At least get flights to the UK every year and medical / dental thrown in. I turned down AED38K per month earlier this summer, just didn't feel it was enough.

Re: HR Gurus: what drives you crazy about recruiters?

I generally find them a bit useless.

All they do is take your cv and stick their logo onto it. I have had them set up an interview and not confirmed the interview back to me. So when the interview...

Re: Just handed my notice in...

Ah well congratulations. Sometimes the longer you leave it the worse it gets. I've got to do the some sooner or later.

Who have you decided to work for? Send me a PM if you prefer.

Re: Hopefully soon in Abu Dhabi

This sounds very poor indeed and I am not even there. I know professionals from the Indian sub continent who were earning more than this 2 years ago. You need to seriously more than double this offer...

Re: My car broke today.

It might be worth checking the fuse box out, to see if there has been any water penetration. This could be the cause of gremlins.

Sorry to hear about your car. I have had my AC fail on the M1 in hot weather and I thought that was bad!

Re: British License and the new UAE rule

Basically you should always drive cautiously with your British licence in a rental. As soon as you obtain your UAE licence it is indeed a licence to drive like an ar*****e!

Re: British License and the new UAE rule

Re: Arriving in Qatar on Saturday

It could be a bad sign if it is grim and they are trying to sign me up! Bu then again if they do get a bit keen good chance for me request more cash.

Thanks.
