I would not call that offer attractive at all.

Unless I am mistaken that sort of coin can be had by folks that work for the 'big operators' in PNG and they do month on, month off.
That tour structure proposed sucks!!

Make sure you check the tax rates, they are horrible in PNG. Also generally no super is paid. MEDEVAC insurance by your employer is also a must these days.

Good Luck.

Has to be a typo, or just complete &@ap... Maybe it was supposed to read 3 weeks on 5 months off for 80k ... I would return to PNG for that.

Should read minimum $120k, month on,month off...
Should you accept this deal, you are:
- Willing to work for less than the market rate
- Happy to help try and lower the market rate
- Telling everyone in the industry that you are worth less as an engineer...

A complete Muppet another words...

Someone who can't work with others will fit right in.

Yeah, if you can't detect the sarcasm in my original post, maybe the internet isn't for you.

I told the recruiter what I thought of that pay and roster and he replied by saying that he understands my concerns and that "the company is trying to overhaul its reliance on touring staff". No other explanation or details given.

I like AgRattlers take on it though!

Hey Mate, It's a recruiting firm out of Australia. They didn't say which company they were recruiting on behalf of. Sorry I can't help you anymore than that. If you want, just list 407 AME on your LinkedIn profile and wait for the offers to start rolling in!
