    Hi there, not sure if this is the correct location to post this but I am looking for some help as I would be no expert in this field so I need some general advice. Basically my sister and her husband are planning on moving back to Ireland. He is american, 37 years old and a qualified structural engineer. He has been offered a job in Dublin in a construction consultancy working as a design engineer and the package is €55k + 10% bonus paid in December + 6% pension contributions. He asked me over the weekend would that be within the average for Ireland. Myself or none of my friends/family work in that kind of industry so I wouldn't have a clue so I am putting it out here for some feedback. Thanks

    Thanks Byran. He is going through a recruiter and think he may have 3 different offers all in around the same. TBH I didn't ask for company names as they wouldn't mean much to me. He just though it was a bit low for someone with a professional qualification and 10+ years but maybe construction salaries in Ireland haven't fully recover yet since the recession.
