Moving Scenario evaluation

Post by qsilver_za » Mon Jan 20, 2020 6:15 am

Hello,

I am living in Australia, working for a management consultancy. I have an EU and Australian passport.

I have been offered a secondment with a Finnish consultancy paying around 6000 Gross or 3600 Net, is this quite a decent pay? It is a full-time role with some other inclusions like mobile phone etc and a moving allowance of around 8000 EU (Flights etc.) Currently I save about half of my salary, would I still have a very good life on this pay as a single adult?

It seems I would be earning about a quarter less in Finland than in Au with similar living costs, my plan would be to stay for 2 years.

Initially, I had hoped to retain my role in AU but it seems I can only do a transfer, I would be doing this for the experience and not necessarily for the money,

It is at the upper end of normal salaries in Finland.

Your salary would be OK as sole income for a family of 4.
Without children or mortgage you can have a very good life with that salary.

This is realistic, and also answers your question regarding the very good life with your salary.

Let me get this straight, its either Finland or quit? I'd quit.
