Hi
I am hoping that someone can help me. I am am British and currently living in the UK. I have been with my fiancé for about 3 years. The problem is he is in India and I am here. I would like to join him in India but i would want to work.

Hopefully this s where you guys can help out. Any advice on where to find work would be great!! I have a Human Resources Masters and also experience in English teaching so maybe I could work as a language coach.

Unfortunately ths long distance thing has been going on too long so i really need to move soonish.

Thanks everyone

Scroll down and read some of the threads under similar posts.

I think you need a work visa to work.

Oh. Maybe you could look up jobsites like www.naukri.com and monsterindia. Other options are contacting premier headhunting agencies in the city where you want to be.

I would think your qualifications would be in demand.

You will easily get a job as a language specialist in one of the umpteen BPOs in Gurgaon...that is, if you are interested...

Whoa ! That was a fast response !
Yes, they would offer a role even though you need a visa...start finding through consultants and sites as mentioned above.

Sorry, I did not use quotes to answer...for some reason, the copy/paste function is not working on my PC.

There is no limit to the questions one can ask out here.

google manpower consultants NCR- seems to throw up quite a list.

Caveat, some are shady. Go for the big ones. My information is outdated here, of the many I used to recruit people, I found mafoi good a few years ago
http://www.mafoi.com/aspx/Common/Home.aspx

But there are many others, maybe somebody else can help here.


(edit: NCR is National Capital Region, includes Gurgaon, Noida and some others, and Delhi)

Just to clarify: I think you technically arrange a contract with company X first, then apply for an employment visa on that basis at home.

The company has nothing to do as such with your visa (but your proven and verifiable work contract with them very much does). Bear in mind that as far as I know the employment visa is strictly bound to your employment with that one employer.

As far as I know again (I'll gladly stand corrected), you cannot obtain it nor change it (neither its purpose nor to another employer) once in-country. You'd need to go back home to do it all over again, and again, you cannot get one on the spot upon finding work there. This must be done from home.

Marriage and a status on that basis (assuming he's of Indian origin over give or take the past few centuries) could be an option, but I'm sure you've thought of it and don't let me advise it, marriage as such can present any other number of pitfalls as I'm sure you're aware, even when not moving to anywhere. From what I've seen around me I certainly wouldn't advise it for practical reasons alone (I might specify it doesn't mean very much to me in any other sense either; if it does to you, it could solve some practical problems while you're at it of course. But then there may be the whole cross-cultural and blah thing [or there may well not be -- not to mention the general relationships and blah thing that we all have to deal with btw], you can read plenty about it from all sorts of angles on this site. Again, I'm not here to advise it or not to advise it at all.)

For possible other interested parties, this is always a handy site on some of the practical details: http://immigrationindia.nic.in/

Hi
Thanks for all the advice. The marriage thing does not appeal to me at the moment. Whilst i want to be with my partner I do not feel ready for marriage and i am quite independent and would HATE to have to be dependent on him for everything. That is why i thought working may be an option just so we can se ehow things go.

Wise thought, certainly

btw I'll agree with the others, you seem to have some relevant capacities up your sleeve. I'm sure you can do it, just go through the right bureaucratic moves.

ps Rereading, I liked Kabaary's response & am not even sure if it was meant that way:

Is work like that fun to do even? I could see myself doing something like that some time ago; probably not at all right now.

Anyway, not to scare you off, Helz, I'd say just go for it & see what you find.

Ok i am going to break my promise now more questions ... What sort of salary would i need to survive?

Thanks
