    Question Received an offer, no relocation assistance offered

    Hi everyone,

    Recently I received a verbal offer from a large international company to relocate to HK. The salary seems reasonable (>1M HKD), according to my research, but, obviously, I would like more What is a bit unexpected is that no relocation assistance, in form of money or accommodation, was offered. So my questions are:

    1. Is it ok to haggle over such things as salary/relocation package?
    2. How often do expacts come to HK without any relocation package?

    Some background: currently live in London, work in IT, single, don't really need to move lots of stuff, but do need a place to live at the beginning.

    Any additional thoughts are more than welcome.

    Any reason why you think it is pointless to negotiate about the package?

    verbal agreement, can be rescinded if you push too much.

    ppl in IT dont use printers? have them put in writing some money for your move and perhap a clause that requires you to pay back the assistance if you dont, say, complete a year or two of work.

    as for temp housing, not difficult to find on your own, and thus not worth fighting for
