Hi i'd like to thank all the replies I have had (generally from moderators).

I feel this site is great and offers an insight into what me and my fiance will expect. Will fly out end of Feb to start work. At present I think my partner will get a LTSVP ? but when we get married in next couple of months then we will apply for a dependant pass (she get get work with this along with letter of support i believe without need for work permit)

Just wondering if anyone has any idea what level of salary a Tax Manager in a Big 4 accounting firm could expect? Let's say 6-7 years experience and in the UK an expected salary of maybe Stg£65k.


You will get around 30% less salary-wise in Singapore$ but remember income taxes here (Singapore) are much lower than UK.

I see a lot of questions on average salaries but not many have answers. I would suggest contacting a local headhunter for some ballpark figure.

Salary for IT Security, Risk and Compliance

Postby whoisit » Thu, 28 Jan 2010 3:20 pm

Hi Folks: I have been stalking this thread for quite some time and find it very very useful. A bit of background. I am an Australian working for a MNC in Melbourne. I will be taking over the position of IT Security, Risk & Compliance for Asia-Pac based out of Singapore reporting to the CIO.

Now my issue is that I have no idea how much salary to expect as I am waiting for my company to sort out things but expect some paper work in front of me in the next week or so. I have a fair bit of idea on salaries in oz market for these roles but have no clue about SG. Have tried looking up various sites including this one but none that come close to my role.

I have 9 years exp in similar roles in various sectors and here in Oz a similar position would fetch me around 180K-200K a year. What would be a ball park figure for this role in SG? Basically I need something to work with when the time comes to negotiate. I know expat packages are a thing of the past and am not expecting too many perks from my company (non banking or financial services) but expect them to pay for my move and some initial accommodation costs etc.,

I find this site to be a wealth of information and have made some decisions already based on info here. Anyways if any of you enlightened folk who have an idea on salary for this position and don't mind sharing the info would be greatly appreciated. Ta

First rule of being an expat: never accept a lower salary. So if you earn A$200k now, and they offer you anything less than S$250k, then tell them to take a hike. They'll try to tell you expenses in Sg are lower yadda yadda, and they may even be right, but what happens if you accept a lower salary and then try to return to Australia?

Its adequate if you're single and fairly young and planning to just rent a room. Salary sounds slightly low though.

Yeah, 10 years ago or more. Not necessarily now though.

What about salaries for an Executive Recruiter 10 years experience, educated in New Zealand but maintained Singaporean citizenship...does anyone work in the industry and know what average salaries/commission structures are?

expected salary for an Assistant Manager position

Postby rila » Mon, 08 Mar 2010 4:41 am

Hi all,

I was just curious to know what could be the salary of an Assistant Manager in the aviation industry with a masters degree and some 3 years of experience?

Anyone any idea? Also, what can one expect in a relocation package?

Many thanks for sharing.
