Default Finding work - how easy is it?

Hi,

Can anyone share their thoughts/experience on how easy it is for an English only speaking, British foreigner to find work in Thailand (I would learn the local language once committed)?

Can you recommend where's best to search for employment opportunities, i.e. job sites, employment agencies, etc.?

What is the employment culture like and how does that differ to the UK?

Thanks in advance!

Ask yourself what you can offer to a Thai employer that he would want to employ you. How do you intend to communicate without speaking Thai?

Four messages by the topic starter. All with the same question, in various sections of the forum.

At least 10

OP, a bit of advice. Check the employment visa requirements yourself for each country you've expressed an interest in working in. Make sure you meet all the requirements in terms of age, occupation, qualifications, work history, character etc - you will discover that that you are unable to emigrate to some of these countries. Do the homework, decide on your preferred country (one that you meet all the employment visa requirements for), and then ask questions in that country's forum page. If it's turns out that you are in fact unable to get a visa for that country, repeat that step with your second country of preference.

The trouble with asking the same questions across the forums for so many different countries is that members may feel disinclined to spend time trying to help you, as haven't done the visa eligibility and preferred location groundwork yourself. Best of luck finding what you're looking for, wherever it is!
