Chefs jobs

Postby Jonaboot6385 » Tue Jul 24, 2018 11:28 pm

Hi I’m looking for a little help

I’m moving to Cyprus early next year and am looking for a little information regarding the job situation .
I’m a chef with 18 years experience currently a head chef in the uk . I speak Greek pretty fluent as I’m half greek Cypriot and I’m looking to settle in Cyprus . I’m wanting to know if there is much work out there as there are a fair few advertised but not to sure as salaries are so different ranging from 800 Euro to 2000 Euro !

What I really want to know is
a)am I going to be able to find work
B)salary
C) will £10000 savings be sufficient to see me through until I find work

I’m a very hard worker and am not to fussed initially where to find work as needs must

Any info would be appreciated
Jon

Your research has answered the first 2 questions. The salary range is from €800 to €2000 (with 18 years experience you should be closer to the €2000) and since there are several positions advertised it means you should be able to find work. £10000, assuming you are alone and you will economize, can last you for about 6 months. It should be enough time to find work, but you can not be certain.

It would be best if instead of quitting your UK job you took 2-3 weeks vacation and you came to Cyprus to explore your options. You could arrange for a few interviews and submit your CV from before you arrive and try to use the full extent of your time to find a new employer. Even if you can't find a job during those 2-3 weeks, this will give you a better indication of how easy it would be to get such a job and how much you can earn, so you can then make a more informed decision.

Well Sotos and Miltiades thanks for being so kind to my son. It should be pointed out that myself and the yinaika will be following on shortly afterwards although I ain't gonna work. Jon has accomodation out in Cyprus (Nicosia) which he will use until he finds work.

If you own a house then his 10000GBP should last him for a lot longer! And what do you mean we aren't always nice? :angel:
