My best job leads have been via LinkedIn.

Where do you want to go ?

We are fluent Spanish speakers so best hope of jobs would be South or central America. Have lived in Spain together and i grew up in Belgium, so no need to return.

Top pick would be asia, possibly middle east or the states - but v hard to get into us.

Can't find a comprehensive website with these jobs on....looked at exec appointments and Michael page. Could anybody kindly recommend other places?

Problem is husband has been working in public sector for past four years so were not sure if he could even get private sector work now. Tia.

usefull link for Hong Kong


Browse on the websites of recruiters and send emails with resumes around.

the website has a very good section explaining contracts, visas etc….

Also look up Anglo info Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta, Bangkok & china if you are so inclined.
Full expat packages and far and few now as there is a lot more local talent.
But there are still some good local packages. Any kids? International schools are not cheap!

Hi, yes, we have toddler and a baby. Aware that the time to move in now before they make friends etc and before our parents become so fossilised that we cant leave the country! selfish

Thanks for the links. Been looking non stop for the past couple of days but not much suitable sad - have a feeling this will take some time!
