In recent years, China has become a world economic power. As China begins to expand the private sector, more and more foreigners are seizing this opportunity to live and work in Shanghai, Beijing, and other prosperous metropolises.
Even in the global economic downturn, the Chinese market remains active, so it is particularly attractive to foreigners who have difficulty obtaining employment or career development in their own countries. In addition, many multinational companies are moving their Asian headquarters to China, and more are still opening branches in China. He said foreigners eager to become part of the East Asian economy should realize that these positions are mainly for senior employees and individuals with professional skills.
In addition, foreigners who are interested in working in China should be aware that overcoming language barriers can be a challenge, whether in terms of integrating into local culture or finding a well-paid job. The competition of expatriate work in China is very fierce. Mastering the local language is very important for finding a good middle-level expatriate work in China.
Expat Jobs in China
The good news for foreigners is that the global economic downturn has not affected China's hiring of foreign workers. In fact, many Chinese companies have begun to adopt an active expatriate recruitment policy, because there are very few opportunities for expatriates in their respective countries of origin.
In other words, the downturn in the world market has affected the lucrative standards of treatment for foreigners. Today's companies are less likely than in the past to provide housing subsidies and help pay for school fees.
China's special needs for healthy employment and expatriate work include:
Banking and financial services (risk and compliance manager, anti-money laundering manager, CEO of the consumer)
Accounting and Finance (Finance and business director)
Sales and marketing (media planning and Operations Manager)
Engineering (project manager, team leader, civil engineer)
Law (private management and equity partners, and internal lawyers)
Human resources (managers, consultants, and consultants - please note that these roles usually require Mandarin)
Teaching (mainly ESL, business and marketing in English)
Advertising & Communication (Creative Director)
Manufacturing and industry (Sales Manager, strategic marketing manager)
Health Science (Research and development role)
It (project manager, web developer, programmer)
Salary of Expat Jobs in China
When measuring salary expectations in China, expatriates should consider the following important factors:
Employment from within China will greatly reduce wages
While expatriates in China are not paid as attractive as they used to be, the income of expatriates "employed" from outside China will be much higher than expatriates appointed locally.
The more bilingual and experienced foreigners are, the higher their income in China will be
This simple maxim is correct in most cases of foreigners. Similarly, the more experience a person has in a multinational company, the more unique his skill and professional field, and the higher his salary.
The cost of living in China is reasonable
Although a foreigner's salary in China may be much lower than they are used to (sometimes a quarter or even a fifth of the money they earn in China), the cost of living in China is much lower than that in most western countries. This means that while people may not be able to save a lot of money at the end of each month, they should be able to live comfortably on the "meagre" that is often regarded as the national standard. Remember, however, that in one of China's big cities, the cost of a luxury lifestyle will rival that of most European capitals.
