I have today recieved a job offer from a major travel agency and their Hong Kong office for a full time position with them and I'm really looking for event the most basic of advice to determine whether a move to HK, on these terms and conditions, would be the right - and do-able - thing?
The job comes with :
- Two weeks paid accommodation to begin with to give me time to settle in and find somewhere to live long-term
- Flight out to HK
- Guaranteed salary of $23k a month for first three months to get used to the market, systems etc
- Salary thereafter of $16k, with uncapped earnings potential but minimum OTE of $23k
- Office in Wan Chai
- Visa etc sorted
Now, I've spent a lot of time in HK in a previous life and I like the CWB/WC area so I'd ideally look at living there.
I'd hopefully come to HK with Â£20k+ 'in my pocket' as a back up, but I'd ideally not touch any of it.
In the UK I'm in a job I don't enjoy all that much and it's well beneath where I should be. However, it's with a big, international company and there are prospects for moving on - potentially internationally (which is what I'm after). But there are no guarantees of this happening. So this opportunity to go to HK might be the best shot I have of getting out there.
On the off chance things don't work out with the employer I'm going there to work with, what's the deal with the visa? Would I be able to use the visa to look for work with another company, perhaps in an entirely different sector?
And can you eventually go for perm. residency / citizenship?
Thanks so much ,
