Singapore teachers salary

Postby scubajunky » Tue, 19 Jul 2016 4:19 am

I have just interviewed for a School in Singapore and wondered if you would mind helping me out ?
The salary is $6,000 Singapore dollars per month with no housing allowance,medical cover is included. What would be the minimum salary to enjoy a comfy lifestyle and be able to explore the region and save a little.
It seems low to me, I don't want to struggle month to month and not enjoy the benefits of being in such a place.
Thanks in advance, please respond ASAP as I need to make a decision.

That's pretty normal for a mid range International School. You'll have to share an apartment to make it work but we (my wife teaches) know dozens of teachers on that rate or close to it.
IANAL. IANACPA. IANA Teacher.
Arrested? Lawyer Up
International School job? School website or http://www.ISS.edu
School advice? Avoid for profit schools
Tax advice? CPA
Pay me $5k for 100% success filling in PR form!
