£700 a month doesn't go very far in London.

Figure bills of £100 a month
Travel £100 a month
Food £50 a week

So already you are close to spending £500 a month.

Depends what you are doing exactly in the software testing industry... A permanent position should pay minimum £30k+ and a contract should be minimum £250+ a day in London.

Poland I'm not sure of the pay scales for Testing as I've only worked as a Tester here in the UK but 3000zl a month with no rent to pay seems like your money will stretch a lot further.

I think 3000 PLN netto is very good in Poland (especially you don't have to pay rent). If I were you, I'd stay in a smaller city (up to 100K people) and enjoy life there; you'll spend more in a big city like Warsaw, Krakow, etc.

It varies greatly.

I work as a contractor mainly for banks/finance firms testing new systems/upgrades.

So say a bank has a new online banking website and wants to make sure it works before releasing it to customers I will make plans on what needs to be checked, write instructions or "scripts" to follow and then complete testing on the site going through all the functions and finding errors and working with developers to fix these.

Some projects take a few days others take many months, I could also be testing the performance of a program (user connections/CPU usage etc) or the security (checking any loopholes to prevent hackers/virus etc)

Testing now is often automated so I'll use various programs to run the tests automatically and then check the outcomes.

It's not something you can just walk into really, unless you are simply following a script someone else has written and recording the outcome. nowadays you need a little programming knowledge, SQL, Unix etc to get a good job.

If you want to know anything further just let me know...

Hi everybody,

... any chance to ask some help regarding the living cost and standard in Krakow? I received a job offer with net 1000 eur/month + 1000 eur once as relocation allowance + other benefits.

Does it make sense to move Krakow with this package? How much does a flat cost in generally? Cost of the monthly public transportation.. etc...

If sy has time and feel like providing some assistance me, I would highly appreciate it!

Thanks a lot, Lidia :-)
