Hi All,

I was recently granted visa for State sponsored for Western Australia subclass 176 and I am planning to move to Perth in Feb-2013.

I have applied for few jobs and received couple of offers, but am not able to decide weather it is good package or not for my experience.

OFFERS:
1. Contract jobs of 3-6 months: AUD $400/- per day including superannuation. Per Month $8000/- ($400 x 20 working days).

2. Permanent jobs: AUD $100,000/- per year plus 9% superannuation. Which is $8300/- per month.

My Qualification/experience:
I am currently working as Oracle E-Business Suite (ERP) Functional Lead with 8+yrs experience located in Dubai. I get a salary of $6500/- per month which is tax free as my take home.

Could you please let me know the standard salary range and daily rates for 8yrs experience guys in Oracle ERP in Perth. Appreciate your help.

Regards,
Amar

$AU100,000 is a very good wage. I don't know your job to know how it fairs, but a lot of professionals earn $AU80k. Low paying jobs such as supermarkets will earn about 35-40k pa

Hi Amar,

Was just going through this thread. Sorry, with regard to questions you had asked I still have no anwers, i have just started my process for PR.

I notice you have gotten some job offers being off shore. If you dont mind could you pls share what were the sources through which you got these offers (e.g.- linkedin, seek website, etc).

This would help many of us.

Thanks Buddy

Hi Bruce,

Thanks for reply. Noted.

The reason why I am asking specific to my field is, I heard sometimes employment consultancies usually take advantage of newbies in oz and market them for lower salaries. I am just trying to be cautions while looking for jobs.

Regards,
Amar

Hi Sameer,

I have applied for posting from seek. And its working as far as I see. The only thing I feel negative abt openings is the joining window is 3-4 weeks. I have a notice period of 2 months. Well, I saw other threads which says this is normal in Oz.

Amar

Hi Amar1,

Congrats on your job.

100k + super, is a good pay to start with for a permanent job in Perth. I think permanent jobs here are very few.
$400/day contract job doesn't sound good to me though compared to your permanent job offer. If I were you I would have taken the full time offer :) I would suggest you pay the amount in your Indian company to get relieved early and take one of these offers ASAP. Perth's market, I feel is a bit slow for techies. So grab it when you have it.

Good Luck!

Hi Amar1!

If you aim for a good salary, I would suggest to stay with your current job. As what you have stated that you're getting a take home pay of $6,500 (I assume it's a net). Unless the job offer you got from Australia has incentives (e.g. accommodation, etc). I'm referring to the permanent offer.

As you can see, the cost of living in Perth, Australia is very expensive. You can look for reference here on this forum. I think kaz101 posted a thread about it (Cost of living figures) or you can search on Google. Perth is one of the expensive place in Australia that's why you get that salary offer.

Well if you want some fresh and new environment, then you can take the job offer.

1.) Perth is a pretty expensive place to work in. Thanks to mining. But salary expectations are also higher.

2.) Contract rates should be min AUD 800+ per day. 400 is too low for the experience you are showing. Perm jobs should pay anything between 140 and 160k. Again, depending on your negotiation skills and how well your interview goes : you clear with flying colours, employers won't mind forking out more for the right person.

3.) Taxes are pretty high. Keep that in mind.

I think you have to check with some local peoples about the expenses and the cost of living there so that you can decide weather this package will be enough for you.

Hi,

I am not into Oracle Apps but Melb and Sydney are the best cities for IT jobs. You can get more info about the jobs available for Oracle Apps, job description and the city by searching in seek.com.au for your particular module.
