Hello Delhi People

I am in salary discussions with an advertising agency. They have offered me the standard $25 000 needed to get the working visa. I am a senior creative and in the UK can earn 4 times this. They have not offered accommodation either.

Is this a little low ?? Sorry to share personal stuff with those I don't know but I would love some help please.

Thanks so much

Quite low indeed, especially if its a reputed agency handling big clients!

Depends on your work experience....for a 4-5 years of experience this looks fine...

What are your goals for the gig? I accepted my first expat job because I wanted the experience of working and living in another country - and though the salary wasn't great, it did serve to dress up my CV and led to a later more appropriate-salaried position.

They did provide accommodation and some other expat goodies, though.

It's not great, but it's do-able. You would be spending half your salary on your apartment, but if you don't have any other financial commitments that need not be an issue.

For reference, a new graduate designer would be looking at Rs 20-25k a month before tax.

I would definitely try to work out a "package" though, including as many as possible of the following: paid-for flight from/to the UK at start/end of contract, "cashless" health insurance cover, being put up in a hotel for a couple of weeks on arrival, re-imbursement of employment visa costs (£400) and subsequent renewals while in India (Rs 25k)...

Oh and maybe vaccination costs in the UK before heading out. The Rabies one costs a fortune, and you can't get it on the NHS.
