I have been offered a position at EY as an Audit Senior. Does anyone know what its like working there and whether the pay is good enough to afford a comfortable living?

Congrats on your job offer, and welcome to EE!

I cannot speak to what it is like to work at EY here, but I can give you some feedback about the cost of living. You know what they have offered as a salary. Given where the office is, you would likely live more east or central. So, check out some real estate sites and look for locations such as Eastern Road, Dick's Point, Treasure Cove, Yamacraw - these are areas that would be more amenable to the commute to the EY office. Of course, if you have a scooter, you could live out along Cable Beach and west, and have little impact on your commute.

The rentals available on the real estate sites are only a sample, but can give you some idea as to what is available.

If you are a young female, it may be much more important that you live in a gated/security monitored community. If you are coming with young children, this may also be more important. If you are coming with a partner, be aware that it may be quite difficult for them to find a job here.

Cost of living - the comparisons will depend upon where you are coming from. However, for the most part, you will find that the cost of living is high here. If you are looking for a casual and simple lifestyle, you will do fine.

Check out the real estate listing to get a sense of what you might be able to get for your dollar, and feel free to PM me with specific questions that i can answer for you.
