Supremely good. You will owe tax+NI of 13k + 50% of every pound over 50k. So try to contribute as much as you can to your workplace pension plan to bring your taxable income down while still meeting your financial goals and lifestyle costs.

You can achieve 2.5-3k per month cost of living by sharing apartment with others and adjusting your standard of living.

Use an online tax calculator, research about UK taxes, pensions, healthcare, housing, car financing, fuel prices, insurance etc. Everything except healthcare is expensive. Healthcare itself you DO pay for it just with NI instead of out of pocket.

If you have plans to settle permanently, think about opening an ISA, research childcare costs, tax benefits, state pension age etc. Creating generational wealth as a new immigrant is MUCH harder in the UK than in US. There is no joint filing with spouses unlike US so dont marry someone who earns much less than you lol.

If you have elderly parents back home to send money to, budget that as well.


Thank you! 🙏

I’m working in compliance but would like to make a move to a law firm. I’ve connected with a partner at a law firm, but he more than likely sees me as a potential client, not a candidate. We haven’t met for that “drink” yet, and don’t want to bring things to a screeching halt before we even get to speaking. Any suggestions?

At my uncles wedding in Madrid I remember lying down on the grass in the courtyard after their first dance and crying, my Dad came and saw me, laid down in his suit beside me and asked what was wrong.

“I know my boyfriend wouldn’t dance with me like that at our wedding”

And we just lay there as I cried, and then got up. Had a drink.

Said boyfriend left years ago, and now I have a wonderful man who just asked me what type of dance lessons I want for our wedding next year.

Don’t give up.

Do folks in business/strategy consulting at large firms use firm-approved project management systems, like asana or monday? When I worked at a small boutique firm, folks were obsessed with pristine project management systems and plans and charts and matrices. Now that I'm at a very large firm, it seems like teams maybe have some ad hoc spreadsheets, but everything moves so fast and client requests are constantly changing, it's mostly fly by the seat of your pants.
