Hi all,

I'm a consultant currently working for CG. I was born and bred in the UK, London but I very much want to live abroad particularly in Canada.

Is there an easy way for me to do this / any recommendations as to how I should approach it?

Thanks,

CGer

...or Australia?

Sorry to hijack your thread, CGer. I'm also interested in getting out of UK, preferably to Canada or Australia. Climate aside, what advice can you people give? Anyone out there made the move themselves and would like to tell their story? Any info/tips gratefully received!

I don't mind. If anybody can give some good advice as to how to get out of this country we'd be most grateful :)

Hi,

What exactly do you want to know? Montreal is a nice city with a consulting market mostly controlled by accountants. In terms of strat houses, only Mercer and McKinsey are present. The vost of living is very reasonable, but salaries are lower (should be in $80-$100k Can before bonus for mi-level consultants, depending on experience). French is also reasonably required for life and sine qua non demanded for job. Toronto is less appealing, more costly, but the salaries are higher and almost all major companies have some kind of representation. If you can break $100k barrier, the life is quite enjoyable. In terms of degrees, I'd say only Oxbridge would have stellar value, otherwise people will mark "strange-foreign-unknown-but looks real" and move on. For the rest, this is America: lots of space, big SUVs, McDo, not much cachet anywhere besides Montreal.

Hope this helps.
