I am being offered a Financial Controller profile by a company in Luanda. I am a CA from India and have about 15 years of post qualification experience with big MNC's in India. Some couple of hours research tells me that the package should include housing, food , a car, health insurance and one trip to home country every year.
That I am being given. My question to all friends who are in the know is " How much USD should one ask for as a saving. I am told this will be deposited in my account in the home country by the company every month".
Another question is " Do the companies that employ you take your passport"? I am told it is a practice in some countries.
Thanks a ton and God Bless
I can't provide any information about how much you should be earning but I'd be suspicious of any company that wants to take your passport away.
