Salary should always be looked at relative to the cost of living to determine the strength of a salary package in one‟s new surroundings. It is not advised to take a basic salary and compare to another basic salary in another country without considering how much it costs to live. For instance, a job paying £10,000 per year in a country with a very low cost of living might result in a teacher saving £6,000 per year, whereas a teacher earning £30,000 in a country with a high cost of living might struggle to make ends meet. Additionally, teachers considering international positions must also understand the savings resulting from paid housing and lower tax rates. Teachers with families should also carefully consider the cost as well as the implications of living overseas and educating your child at an international school. For more information for teachers with dependents please ask your recruiter.
