hmmm...thats more of employment going on this forum....LOL
Anyways gud work here - Rashi.

@Indian worker: Although I am living with my family but to tell you the truth with the kind of money you are talking, assuming you take a low end figure of your quoted salary you would be easily able to manage your expenses and livings, Its not as expensive as you will find Mumbai. I am sure that with such a kind of budget you will find yourself in perfect balance of your environs.

P.S. : Any help or tips needed in Delhi, Bug me anytime.

Hi Indian worker, Have been browsing through your tale...why...this morning I got offered a job in Delhi!Not sure what to make of it. I am british but working in New Zealand where my working visa is running out. I worked in Kuala Lumpur 8 years ago, and totally loved it. Why Delhi - because I lived there as a child for nine months but have no recollection of it, so am keen to refamiliarise myself with somewhere which is part of my history. The job offer I receved by email this morning has not divulged critical issues like - money etc, so like your position initially I have no idea what will make 'sense' in terms of income and expenses. As an architect with ten years working experience I am hoping that may get something sensible. Can you or any of the freinds you've made on this site advise? All in all I am quite giddy with excitment...a new chapter is beginning...

Hi Guys!

Well things haven't quite worked out job wise for me yet in India. I am working for RBS in Manchester and was assured a job in Delhi working for Churchills. Unfortunately they have now closed their offices in India! My plan is to work in India for about 2 years to cover general living expenses whilst l'm out there. My main purpose in going is 2 learn Hindi and also just experience life there. Have any of you guys got any tips on where to start on this job hunt? Preferably in Bangalore, a job in Sales or Customer Services. I was planning on leaving the UK around May 2006. Any help would be much appreciated.

Working in India

Hi Indian worker

You first posted on IndiaMike in 2005 re an offer of a job, and it seems that now you are there and living in Delhi, and enjoying life there. I was offered a job in Bangalore, which fell through - was due to fly out today and I am gutted.

I wondered if you could advise me, now you're there, about how to find work. The company you work for, are they looking for other staff and if so, how could I apply?

Would be really pleased to hear from you - feels like a dream just went down the plug hole, and am keen to come and live in India for a while, despite Mumbai bombings etc.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Working in India

Hi Ruth,

Sorry to hear that your recent job offer has fallen through - a real shame but do not despair I believe there are still opportunities out here.

Firstly, I encourage you to look on various job websites relating to India as I did when I first come over here.

Also, www.delhiexpat.com, Yuni-net and few other expat sites also advertise jobs. There was a job offered on Indiamike a while ago for British Intercultural Trainers in Bangalore - you may want to search that one out and someone on Yuni-net is looking for expats in Delhi so please take a look (let me know if you require e-mail addresses and be warned you will need to take membership of these organisations.)

In Delhi there is a membership organisation called Strategic Links (www.strategiclinksdelhi.org) which also advertises jobs for expats in Delhi. You have to become a member to get the job adverts and they are not a recruitment agency but I joined and there are a number of jobs listed.

Are you set on a particular city in India or are you OK working in any of the major cities?

Hope the above helps but please let me know if you require any further help. Have now been living and working here in Delhi for almost 4 years and have loved every minute - well almost every minute - certainly loved it enought to stay and hoping to stay much longer.

Best,
Indianworker

Smile Working in India

Hi Indianworker

Thanks for such a swift reply and for the info on websites etc - that's really helpful, and will follow up on those.

I'm not particularly fixed on any one city, though given the choice would prefer Delhi, having been there a few times.

Can I ask you if you managed to get your job whilst you were still in the UK? It seems like it might be easier if I were already there, but would prefer to have a bit of security about coming to a job.

Hope to hear from you soon. Thanks again!

Hi Ruth,

The first job I got here was sourced in the UK and I came with the job but the second job I got offered whilst out here and the third.

My present job was offered when I was out here as well and I would suggest if you have the financial capacity it may be worth your while coming out to say Delhi and networking/looking around as I have found work by being here rather than in the UK. You are at least here on the ground to meet people and I think you will get more information whilst here. Do bear in mind you may need to return to the UK to get an Employment Visa but you can look into that when you have a job offer.

Good luck and stay in touch and let me know if you require any more help.

We have jobs in Goa for anybody interested in the automotive industry but I am not sure if I am allowed to write that and that the mods will tick me off.
