Anyone Worked/lived In Brazil

Recommended Posts

Anyone any experience of working or living in Brazil, just found a load of vacancies for jobs I could easily do and I am seriously tempted. Would need to take the wife and 2 kids.

Any views?

North East Brazil? Could be good. I heard that it is much different from say Rio.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Natal,_Rio_Grande_do_Norte

Lowest crime capital and great climate:

Natal has a typical tropical climate, specifically a tropical wet and dry climate, with warm to hot temperatures and high relative humidity all throughout the year. However, these conditions are relieved by a near absence of extreme temperatures and pleasant trade winds blowing from the ocean. January is the warmest month, with mean maxima of 31 °C (88 °F) and minima of 24 °C (75 °F), while July is the coolest with mean maxima of 27 °C (80.6 °F) and minima of 22 °C (72 °F)

How old are the kids?

If they're 10 or older and they give you enough money to send them to one of the international schools where the rich kids go(we're talking similar prices to UK private schools), fine, or if they're small, then a local private school would probably be OK.

Don't even think about sending them to the standard schools.

If you can get used to thinking about personal security in a completely different way, then it could be good.

Try www.gringoes.com for more info.

Edit : as a married man with kids, DON'T go there on your own, you'll find yourself nuts deep in a Brazilian woman who sh*gs better than a gymnast pornstar before you can blink. This can lead to trouble.... :)

brazil is great i lived there for 4 years. Never saw any real trouble but you do learn were not to go very quickly. the advice on schools sounds about right. the beer is shit mind you but the wide variety of fruit juice can sustain a curious palette for a while. Great food .. ahh the north east.. that the best for grub .

Why dont you take a holiday with the family and see if you all can see yourselve spending some time there. I think it would be of enormous value for the kids .. to experience life outside the UK

I have known a couple of English girls who were brought up in Brazil.

Did them the power of good.

If there was a good opening in Brazil and the "due diligence ... (yawn) ,," came in positive, I'd take it.

I totally agree with this. I lived abroad briefly while growing up and it had a positive effect on not just myself but also my other international school schoolmates.

Int'l schools are a bit like what normal schools should be but located far away from national politics. They are more like independents, with high standards (coz someone is paying) but without all the posh claptrap. I highly recommend them.

thanks for all the replies folks, definitely mostly positive. Been doing a bit more digging today and sounds like it's certainly worth considering. I currently work for Network Rail and our current chief exec has just announced he's leaving. General consensus is he knows the cuts that are coming and either isn't up to making them or doesn't want to, maybe I should follow his lead.
