I am thinking of working overseas and working in Dubai looks like a good option, problem is I am not sure it would be financially viable for me, so I wondered if anyone could offer me there advise!!!??
I am 28 years old and currently work as a Senior Software Tester for a large international Insurance Company (London Markets) in the City and have 2/3 years experience.
My current salary is 50K plus benefits (bonus, pension), for my age and experience I appreciate that I am in a very good position but I am very keen to work overseas for the different lifestyle, as I am kind of bored working in the city at the minute.
Do you think I would be able to find work as a Software Tester in Dubai and if so what sort of salary would I be able to find, would it be more or less than my current role in the UK? Obviously factors to take into account would be tax savings and the inflated costs of accommodation in Dubai.
Anyway any advice on this would be much appreciated, also any advice on the best way of finding a suitable job would also be great as well.
Thank you so much in advance.
