Most of the questions you ask, have been discussed in various threads.

Salaries are usually confidential, however, have you tried to google salaries for different posts.

Hope you find what you need to know!

Hello.

It depends on which city you are staying in. Also how much safer places you want to stay. Since you are from Pakistan I bet you won't stay with local SA people unless you have been provided accommodation from your company.

I m staying in a locality (near JHB - 30 miles :) ) where mostly Asians are staying and travel 35 KMs everyday one way to work. But the place is much safer and obviously feels at home.

House Rent + Electricity + Water = Around 6k
Car - Good Second hand around 25k
Fuel - 15.35/L
Food - 2k (monthly ration for 4 people)
Maid - 80 / Day (Except cooking all other work)

Extra as per your lifestyle.

Thanks.

Hi, a average salary for a project manager, 10 years experience is betwen 800k and 1.2MM before taxes. Rgds
This is totally biased towards, perhaps, construction projects of a large nature. In ICT, a project manager on small projects could earn R240K.
