Roughly $750 US to apply, no guarantee and no refund. Travel and lodging and expenses on your own. Not exactly the usual international recruiting offers.
I haven't taken a contract since 2008 when I finished up a tour with Triple Canopy, but, yeah, those conditions outright suck. IF they sponsored licensing, visa, travel and lodging at least I would make a go of it for the sole purpose of my fiancee enjoying time off from her position and enjoying a tour of merry old England.
I'm currently looking more towards the gulf, not positions I don't need to carry a 416 on anymore. Preferably one that after the wedding she can visit. Qatar is looking promising, but I'm... cautious about Hamad Medical Corporation in general. Mixed reviews.
Thank ya brother, keep your head down and your powder dry.
