Moving to Thailand offers a wide array of opportunities for expats. Career prospects, especially in the tech market, are on the rise. Furthermore, the climate, culture and beaches are a big positive.

Numbers on how many expats actually live in Thailand vary from 500,000 to one million, but many of those will choose to reside in the capital of Bangkok. Living close to the Skytrain and the MRT travel network is key to getting around easily. Many expats live in the popular areas of the upper and lower Sukhumvit Road and south along the Chao Phraya River.

Thais will call foreigners ‘farangs’ even if they know your first name. Expats shouldn’t be offended. Thais are in general thoughtful and kind. They are law abiding too. In fact, if there is a traffic accident in Thailand, as a foreigner you will be held responsible, based on the fact that if you weren’t living in the country there wouldn’t have been an incident.

In recent years Thailand has become something of a hot-spot for start-ups with American companies offering investment opportunities. Large businesses such as Uber and Google have headquarters in Bangkok as well as accountancy firms such as PricewaterhouseCoopers.

Salaries are good and the cost of living is far cheaper than most European countries. Renting a condominium in the centre of Bangkok can stand at 21,000 baht (£476.616) according to online research database, Numebo. This is far cheaper than living in the centre of London where a one-bedroom flat may cost nearly £3,000 per month to rent.

The weather and the beaches are a big draw to holiday makers and expats alike. The weather is predominantly tropical and humid, but this will be dependent upon where you live in the country. Northern Thailand has three seasons with warm weather eventually interrupted with a monsoon period. In Southern Thailand there are just two seasons – wet and dry and it will see more rain than its northern counterpart.

That said, along with the all the benefits there are of course a few issues about upping sticks and moving to a completely different country and culture. Gaining a Visa has in recent years become a much harder experience especially if you are looking for Thai Permanent Resident status. If you are to gain PR status you can get a work permit and buy a condominium without a foreign money transfer. You’ll need to have had a non-immigrant visa for at least three years, before applying for the PR. Be warned if you outstay your visa you’ll be fined up to a maximum of 20,000 baht and you’ll be deported after 42 days. If deported you’ll be banned from re-entering Thailand.

There’s nothing more daunting than moving house. Add in moving to a new location overseas and the enormity of the situation could throw even the hardened traveller off kilter.

Which Jobs Could Earn You More Money In Australia and New Zealand?

Salary growth along with added benefits such as flexible working, increased holiday entitlement and career opportunities are just some of the employee desires revealed in Hays 2017 Salary Guide.

As worldwide recruitment experts, Hays surveyed more than 2,950 organisations across Australia and New Zealand, which represents more than 3 million employees. The results of the survey reveal both optimism for a growing workforce but caution when it comes to salary increases.

The good news is that businesses are booming – and are optimistic that this boom will continue.  75% expect an increase over the coming 12 months, and 36% foresee a strengthening economy coming in the six to 12 month period.

This rising level of activity revealed that many companies expect to increase their overall headcount in the coming year with 45% expecting to bolster their permanent staff levels and 23% adding to their temporary or contract workforce. This however doesn’t mean salaries will see a comparative increase.

In fact, many of those surveyed are nervous about salary increases and even those that are considering them offer tentative low rises.  Employers in 11% of industries admitted they will not offer salary increases in their next review and those that do are looking at minor adjustments.

The survey also found that 65% will increase salaries by less than 3%, with 19% intending to award between 3 and 6% and just 5% expecting to offer more than 6%.

The good news is that some industries are offering above average pay increases. A skill shortage across the regions in technological and operations staff, accountancy and finance, means higher wages are needed to attract employees to key roles.

Hays 2017 Salary Guide found that industries intending to offer more than a 3% increase in the next 12 months, include 48% of the IT and telecommunications sector, 42% of advertising and media and 34% in construction, property and engineering.

“Salary growth for the majority of Australia & New Zealand’s skilled professionals will remain subdued in the year ahead, says Nick Deligiannis, managing director, Hays Australia and New Zealand. “Add the number of employers who indicated that business activity has and will continue to rise, and such small salary increases will test the loyalty of employees.

“It seems the time honoured supply and demand principle has also failed to impact salaries in all bar a few instances.  Yet Australia’s strengthening economy, rising business activity, growing headcounts and skill shortages cannot be overlooked for too long. The piercing question therefore is how high will turnover reach before typical salary increases climb above three per cent?”

Helping Your Children Make Friends Abroad

Igor Spasic, ocean is young

Moving home is exciting but it can also be quite daunting if you arrive in a new location without any friends or family to act as a support.  For children, the experience can be even more overwhelming, especially if they are older and have left lots of strong friendships behind.

As a parent you’ll bare the brunt of the upheaval and will need to arm yourself with some skills in order to help everyone settle in. Remember not to be too hard on yourself. Moving abroad is a big step and everyone will find it difficult, even those that really wanted to relocate. The great news is that children are on the whole are very adaptable. Give it time and it’s most likely that you will all feel settled.

Here a few suggestions for making the friendship transition abroad.

For younger children:

The younger the child, the easier it will be to find ways to help them make new friends, fairly quickly. Smaller children are more open to new friendships, having not left too many strong bonds behind. There are a huge array of options here for new mate bids. Children below school age could find friends at playgroups, parks or the various number of activities that youngsters can take part in. 

Ways to start:

* Find the nearest playgroup via neighbours with children and arrange a date to meet them there. It will be easier to turn up and spot a familiar face rather than find a sea of strangers.

* Look into activities that your child liked at home. If they enjoyed swimming or singing back home chances are they’ll enjoy the experience in your new environment.

For pre-teens:

Finding mates when you’re at school, may be easier, or harder than imagined. It will all depend upon how sociable your children are. Again encourage them to find clubs to join that reflect their current tastes and interests. They may find these options at school or you’ll have to research particular outlets.

Ways to start:

* See if your child wants to invite some of their new classmates around for an impromptu movie and popcorn evening. This will be a good way for you to meet the parents too.

* Set up a regular activity on a Saturday morning so your kids can meet friends outside of school. This will help if the Monday-Friday routine isn’t going so well.

For teenagers:

There’s a good chance that if you have a child between the ages of 13 and 19, you’ll find them the toughest to convince that moving was a good idea. They’ll have a whole list of reasons why staying at home was a better idea. It’s also one the hardest times for them in terms of friendship, with hormones and peer pressure, shaking the best of them. Again, they’ll need to pursue old interests and hopefully find some new ones. You could also encourage them to keep in contact with their old friends via social media.

Ways to start:

* Encourage them to leave the house and discover some new opportunities available to them. They may not have surfed before but if you find yourself on one of Australia’s hottest beaches it won’t hurt to find out if they can. Alternatively many ski resorts offer clubs for kids during the key season.

* Look out for other expats with kids of a similar age and see if you can arrange a shopping/beach/ski/basketball trip. Finding someone in exactly the same boat can really help.

Brexit: What We Know Now

For useful articles and tips on moving to other countries and life as an expat, please like the PSS International Removals Facebook page and follow the Twitter profile.

airpix, brexit stubblepatrol.com.

The Brexit negotiations officially began on June 19 2017 in Brussels. This is the first time ministers from the UK and EU will sit down for face-to-face discussions. The early negotiations will cover the housekeeping issues, around logistics with the real talks beginning next month.

Brexit Secretary David Davis called it ‘a deal like no other in history’. Some of the key issues to be discussed will be the rights of expats, the Northern Ireland border, and how Europe and the UK will successfully ‘divorce’.

The fact that the government is going into the negotiations without the resounding majority they’d hoped for will obviously have an effect. The Conservatives’ coalition with the DUP will also, some argue, change the strategy from a ‘hard’ Brexit to a softer approach.

A ‘hard’ Brexit is described by BBC News as that ‘could involve the UK refusing to compromise on issues like the free movement of people even if it meant leaving the single market. At the other end of the scale, a “soft” Brexit might follow a similar path to Norway, which is a member of the single market and has to accept the free movement of people as a result of that.’

On the eve of the talks Conservative ministers, Chancellor Philip Hammond and Environment Secretary Michael Gove both offered up their opinions on the Brexit strategy.

The Chancellor admitted it would be a grave mistake of the UK to exit the talks without any   deal in place. Michael Gove however insisted that Theresa May wouldn’t sign up to anything that would harm the country.

He told Radio 4’s Today programme that he believed Theresa May would sign a ‘good deal’ and suggested that Brexit would give the UK ‘democratic control of our borders’.

The borders issue will have an enormous effect on the 1.3 million UK residents living within the EU. EU ministers will want to see some protection for the millions of immigrants residing in the UK. If these assurances can’t be given this will no doubt have an effect on those Brits who have set up home in Europe with key considerations such as healthcare and work permits under fire.

David Davis admitted that it would be a ‘long road ahead’ but predicted ‘a deep and special relationship’.

The negotiations are predicted to end in March 2019 when expats will discover their fate.

The Best Countries For Global Living

One of the biggest considerations for expats when choosing their perfect location has to be the cost of living. The high price of food, accommodation, healthcare and commuting can all be a burden on a newly arrived expat, so any research done on these costs can only be helpful.

Each year Deutsche Bank surveys global prices. In 2017 they surveyed 47 cities and evaluated their position based on the following criteria: purchasing power, crime, healthcare, cost of living, house prices, commuting time, pollution and climate.

Top of the chart was Wellington in New Zealand, followed by Edinburgh, Vienna, Melbourne, Zurich and Copenhagen, Ottawa, Boston, Amsterdam and Sydney.

Of the cities noted as ‘mega-cities’ by the survey Tokyo (rank 27), NYC (28), Paris (30), London (33), Shanghai (37) and Mumbai (45). The report noted that these had ranked so low due to high living costs, crime, pollution and commuting. It also notes that some of these costs would actually be of benefit to some i.e. a long commute may benefit those who are happy to catch up on work. Some expats may not mind the short-term loss of quality of life due to high remuneration in the form of salaries.

Zurich itself remains one the most expensive place to do and buy a lot of things, but it has some of the highest average salaries, followed by several US cities such as Boston, San Francisco and New York. Sydney also features here.

Rents are highest in San Francisco, Hong Kong, New York, London and Zurich. Zurich has  the highest ‘disposable incomes after rent’ and features at the top of the report purchasing power index. The bottom of the scale reveals that Jakarta, Manila, Rio, New Delhi and Istanbul has the lowest quality of life in terms of health care, safety, property price to income ratio, traffic commute, pollution and climate.

The report also covers and compares the cost of certain products across the globe. The new iPhone 7 is cheaper in the United States than countries such as Turkey, Greece, Brazil and Poland. If you’re looking for a 5 star hotel room head to Istanbul, Warsaw, Manila or Lisbon. The highest prices can be found in Milan, London, Vienna, Copenhagen and Stockholm.

London itself was number 33 in the chart. Its low positioning was based on the high cost of commuting, the cost of living and the property/income ratio. The authors also noted that Brexit has had a negative effect.

Job Hunting In France: Careers Advice

For useful articles and tips on moving to other countries and life as an expat, please like the PSS International Removals Facebook page and follow the Twitter profile.

Job hunting can be hard enough in your home country but looking for work at a new abode can seem utterly daunting. It’s often thought that career prospects aren’t easy for those moving to France, and it’s true much of your success will be dependent upon whether you can speak the language or not.

In order to get a high level job it would certainly be worth while brushing up on your language skills by taking a course before you set about looking for work. Language courses can be done online or at evening classes, where there are a number of options.

Unemployment rates are slowly falling in France but still the under 25s are those in the highest risk group. It should also be noted that much available work is flexible and not permanent. That said, the good news is that in some sectors there is indeed a skills shortage.

The French government recently listed those sectors currently and actively seeking recruits. They are as follows:  ICT professionals, Health professionals and veterinarians, Engineering professionals, Finance professionals and Legal professionals and legislators.

There is also a more interesting list noted by French employment agency Pole Emploi noted that the country is also looking for winegrowers, tree surgeons, waiters, restaurant workers and community workers. You’ll also be in luck if you can lend a hand as a rural farm worker.

The good news is that they also highlight the need for English speaking nannies, estate agents and those experienced in the travel sector. Indeed English speakers (although not necessarily those who can’t speak a word of French) could also find work in industries such as foreign embassies, major organisations including Unesco and Action Against Hunger. You could also take up more varied jobs such as tour guides or even red tape experts. The latter would certainly be helpful for others moving to the area.

Some 153,000 Brits are officially registered as living in France and many of those have interesting and exciting jobs. With a little preparation you could be one of them.

Why the UK’s higher education system is so important to Chinese students

In a recent Times Higher Education Supplement, the importance of the UK’s school system to Chinese students was highlighted and explained. Students from Asia-Pacific countries pick the UK as their number two location (the USA being the first) to study. These students generate economic benefits to the UK of some £4.23 billion through tuition fees of non-European students. This figure has generally slowed down since they were released in 2014-2015 but it’s still an impressive total especially in the tough economic climate.

Figures compiled for the 2012-13 academic year showed that one in three international students (33%) coming to the UK to study were from China. In total it meant there were over 55,500 Chinese students in the UK during that time period. Almost 49% of those students were studying on business and administrative post graduate courses. The China Daily noted that there were 10 top universities Chinese students were likely to apply to – number one was Liverpool University, followed by Manchester University and Nottingham University.

So why is the UK so popular to those coming from China, especially when tuition fees can total around £10,000 a year? Taking into account living expenses, sometimes in the bigger cities, it’s certainly not cheap, and would be a financial burden for many middle class Chinese families.

The Times supplement again concluded that many of the students they talked to believed that having a degree from a UK university would enhance their career possibilities. Of the people interviewed they found that after graduation 59% found jobs within three months, 32% secured jobs within six months and all had found jobs by the end of the first year.

Culturally the report argued that academic achievement and a good education is something Chinese families value highly. They will it says mean families will pool resources to make sure their children received the best education they can afford.

Chinese students too it must be argued, will also see benefits beyond the academic qualification. As many overseas students discover, studying abroad can open up a wider world of experiences and benefits.

These can include: Improving English and language skills, the possibility to work alongside studying and an understanding of different cultures.

Currently international students contribute £25bn to the UK economy and support more than 200,000 jobs. With immigration policies currently under debate during the run up to the General Election on June 8th, international students, including those from China could find it more difficult to study in the UK. It’s a concern many from the international community share but students will need to wait and see the outcome.
