    Jeff, I would love to come in live in New York. If my family will agree to a move, I might put an application in ;)
     
  6. Yeah I was going to say the same, if you're willing to pay travel expenses haha.

    JeffAtHuemor Member

    Yes, 45-50k. Not willing to pay travel expenses, but I am willing to pay you ;D
     
  8. It seems like a lot of money for the skills required? Which I applaud, just wasn't expecting it. What's the catch? haha. Have you had many responses for this position yet?

    Sean, that seems about right to me, if not a little low....I'd class junior as 1 or 2 steps above a graduate designer in a company and a uni grad should get £15-20k.
    uk average wage is supposedly £30k and this is roughly the US's average at $50k. Now considering this is in New York which I assume it would have the same sort of premiums that we associate with London so it might even be on the low end.
     
  10. Ahh right, fair enough.

    Cost of living in NYC is VERY high. So this is actually on the entry level payment for this case. However, being in New York it sounds low to me just because of cost of living.

    My junior position job was between 35-40 in Florida where cost of living is much lower.
     
  12. I don't think my brain had quite remembered to convert USD into GBP : /

    £29.5k - £32.8k is comparable to the same job in London, if not slightly higher. I can't see anywhere being much more expensive to live then London. Its about £1200 ($1800) pm for a standard 2 bed flat in central London, how does that compare to New York? Sorry to go off from the original post.

    Euro is 1.29x's the US Dollar, so 45-50k US is approx. 31.9-35.5k Euro.
    Cost of living (We're not in NYC, we're on Long Island, which is about 40 minutes outside of NYC) a decent two bedroom apartment can run between 1,200-1,700 US.
    This position is entry to junior, meaning it's scaleable depending on experience and skillfulness.
    It's slightly above what the standard for LI is (In terms of compensation for this position) however we're seeking talented, bright, and determined individuals so we're aware they typically cost more.
    Edit: As for responses, we've had an overwhelming amount of applicants, so we're interviewing quite a few people for the position, but if you're talented, motivated, and legitimately want to work with and help build a studio-style creative agency we would love to see your work / resume.

    we don't use the euro in the UK.... we're still using pounds sterling (£.p).
