thinking about moving to Aberdeen and working in Oil and Gas

by CanadianJay

I have a ton of questions. I am currently living and working in Calgary, Alberta Canada, but I've always wanted to live overseas. What is a decent Salary in Euros there? Where do people typically live, and is it expensive to live in Aberdeen relative to other cities (if you can compare to Cdn cities that would be great, but don't worry about it if you aren't sure).

I am an oil and gas accountant with 3 yrs experience, what is the job market like there, and do I need to have an offer of employment before I move. How difficult is it to get a work permit/visa?

Is there anything else that you think I should know before I start preparing to do this?

I really appreciate any advice you can give me,

Jay

RE: thinking about moving to Aberdeen and working in Oil and Gas

by df53

First thing to do would be make contact with one of the recruitment agencies. you could try the following:
www.michaelpage.co.uk
www.asainternational.co.uk
www.changejobs.net
I am an accountant and have used agencies before, will email you direct with some specific contact details.

While all of the big companies have a presence there, a lot of the start up companies are actually based in edinburgh. These are the guys who arent drilling in the North Sea but some other exotic place on the globe.

Not sure what your qualifications are but you could perhaps expect a salary of GBP30k depending on certain factors.

Travel Tips for Aberdeen

Aberdeen City in Bloom

by scottishvisitor

Aberdeen has won the coveted award of Britian in bloom competition many times - the city comes alive with colour from Cherry blossom and daffodils in spring time to fall colours in Autumn. The city has many parks and greenspace and the local council gardeners work hard to keep the city a very green place indeed.

Ask the locals if you can go out on a fishing trip

by scottishvisitor

During Harbour Day (held in August) you can have a trip in a little fishing boat. See where the fishermen place their creels to haul up some lobster & other sea creatures. At other times of the year if a boat is going out just ask the fisherman he will probably oblige No equipment necessary

Walk to St John's Church, Gardenstown

by stevezero

From Gardenstown, walk past Seatown, along the beach, turn inland, and follow the winding footpath up to the 1000 year old church. Although uphill it is not to strenuous.
The ruins of the church stand now deserted high above Gardenstown. In the old days at a funeral the coffin was carried along the beach and up the winding path to the church, but not anymore.

Real Italian

by Mermaid007 about Soprano

Aberdeen has a good selection of Italian restaurants, but according to my Italian friend, this is the only restaurant in town that serves "real" Italian food . I just take her word for that...:P Spagetti Marinara

The Aurora Borealis

by lnalba

The winter months are ideal for seeking out the Aurora Borealis, the Northern Lights. Once seen, never forgotten, and searched for again once the show is over.

I finally saw the aurora for the first time in 2003, and attempted to take a few photos of this astronomical phenomenon.

From around November to March, the aurora can become very active, and the dark nights give you plenty of time to try and see it. The aurora becomes most active at around midnight, but can be spotted well before this time. You just need to know what to look for. You also need to be out of any streetlighting. Go out into the countryside.

The aurora is not as nearly as elusive as people seem to believe. In the (preferably) cloudless sky, the first sign of the aurora is a thick pale blue line above the horizon, stretching from west to east whilst you face north. The "streaks" of light (usually blue and red) of the aurora stream upwards from this line, and float and shimmer along its length. This "line" you are looking for becomes more visible as your eyes become accustomed to the dark - it is not immediately obvious, so don't think that nothing is happening if you don't see something immediately. As I said, once you know it, you won't forget.

Aurorawatching is a cold business, so wrap up warm, take a blanket and a flask of tea, and look up! Northern Lights - you need sound for this!

There are heaps of webpages devoted to this subject, and AuroraWatch will send you an email when a "storm" is beginning. Address is below.
