A slight change to my employment BLOG this week as I need your expert advice for our fellow members!!
Obviously the topic is working overseas and the reason being is to provide a brief insight to fellow members about the ex-pat life as a contractor, on temporary roles, or for many, the move permanently abroad.
I’ll throw some questions into the pot for individuals and hopefully businesses that employ ex-service personnel overseas and why, but the most important factor is not my questions but the reasons that drew you to this style of employment and opportunities, plus the benefits or drawbacks you face as an individual or employer.
What led you to seeking employment overseas? Is it the remuneration packages? Job satisfaction? Lifestyle? The economy? Is it where your skill-sets are best utilised? What pitfalls have you encountered?
As an employer what is the driving force in recruiting ex-military personnel for your overseas operations? How many former service personnel do you employ in ratio to other staff? What advice can you offer our members who are considering this move when they leave HM forces?
