A little help on two salaries please - Thanks in advance!

Postby Mortimer » Sun, 02 Dec 2012 5:44 am

Hello,

I currently work as a Mechanical Foreman and will shortly complete my HNC in mechanical Engineering (11/11 Distinctions). I also have 6 years experience.

My wife is currently Assistant head of a well known private school and has a MA in Educational Leadership. She has 7 years experience.

So, my question... What is the current rate (Approx) for an assistant / Deputy Head and a mechanical engineer. I know people will tell me to look online, but so far I've yet to find two figures remotely the same!!

The second question... What is the current cost for living? I can find the rental prices obviously however I'm unsure of daily living costs such as utilities etc.

I'm sure this question is often asked and I therefore say thanks in advance to anyone who can shed some light.

Thanks,

Richard.
Thanks in advance!

Can't help you on the first, but the second?

The median household income in Singapore is around 7K/mo. The median Income in Singapore is around 5K/mo. I know people who make less than 5K/mo and manage to save 20% or more of their disposable income. I also know people who make 25K/mo and cannot make ends meet. Without knowing you lifestyle, there is no way we can assist you except by saying have a good search of this forum as it's been discussed umpteen times every month for the past 8 years.

There are salary surveys in the oil and gas industry that may assist.
I have gay, black, Asian friends and then JR8.
