First post here!
So I’ve decided to take the plunge and relocate from UK for work. Lots of exciting opportunities here on this side of the world. Anyway I’m negotiating a salary and wanted some advice.
I am currently being offered,
Base salary of 100,000
(Annual bonus of 15%)
I only have 2 years of experience but the company is a large multinational corporate.
Is the salary quite low from what we see for foreign nationals coming into taipei? I should also note that I am expected to make student loan repayments to my home country at a rate of 5000 NT$ per month (variable on salary). I expect to be working pretty long hours so I would want my pay to at least reflect that. Am I being greedy considering the expat market or is this reasonable? If you don’t mind me asking, what would you recommend I try to negotiate my salary towards? Would 1.5 million Taiwanese a year be more reasonable?
Any advice would be welcome!
