    Default Contracts abroad

    Hi all,

    Just wondered if anyone could provide any good agencies they may have used or know about to get contracts abroad ? I'm looking Europe (mainly Spain) or UAE. Any guidance or assistance is greatly appreciated as I want to get out of this country. Im a BA/PM in the Financial services sector. Specialising in Asset Management/Change Management/Regulatory.

    Many thanks for any help.

    For UAE try "deerfoot" or "Michael Page". Their rates were decent enough to consider. But then, it was a year ago. Having said that, right now companies are only considering people who are already in the UAE.

    Bear in mind that Emirates recently sacked hundreds. They are one of the reputed companies in that region but then again it was the Airline industry that got hit badly due to travel restrictions.

    Another one hacked off by the B-word lol.

    Do you speak fluent Spanish? Are you aware that although living costs are lower than the UK, salaries are a LOT lower (whether working as a permanent or autónomo).

    Have got contracts with a couple of providers attached to various EU establishments throughout Europe, including Spain through Charles Oakes, a leading IT solutions organisation

    Hiyers!

    Thanks, it's been a while, been so-so, took two months out around Christmas because I needed the break then I got this great opportunity to break into the travel industry lol! That was 4 months ago. Hope all is well with the usual suspects. I'll keep my eye out for the socials.

    To the OP, I've just landed a role paying in Euros but WFH, you need to find the right people to follow. I was scanning LI for the nth time and a role was published but then commented on by someone who was a second connection. It's soul-destroying but it worked (fingers crossed).
