I am currently looking to work overseas and I am very stuck on the decision between Dubai and either Africa or Latin America. I have interviewed for an amazing school in Africa and I am aware that you are paid in local currency and the rate is much lower than my current salary in the UK (for a more senior role). And I am presuming it would be the same in South America? I know that although the salary is low, I should have more money left to myself than I currently do in the UK (school provide lodgings and meals) but I guess I am worried about saving and also career development once I leave. I think I will be happier in places in Africa or South America, but earn more and therefore have more oppurtunities to travel and save in Dubai or the UAE. What are people's experiences of the above places? Is it normal to be paid in local currency in Africa for an international school? And is the cost of living in Duabi low enough to actually save some money? Thanks in advance.
