Thanks
Not many Aussies on this board that are on that gig. Have quite a few mates there. Nothing to complain about, although it does happen, (the complaining). I work with the former Ops Manager on that gig.

Tax - It's not "exempt" due to your being employed by a non-Aussie company, but it does fall under tax-free ATO status being in support of an approved Aussie Govt mission. Confusing? Sure. Get a tax agent with experience and knowledge dealing with that realm.

Food - Good.
Gyms - Good.
Internet - Good.
Workload - Good, but can vary dependant on which specific compound you are on.

Due to them winning the Baghdad contract, there are a few people looking to move over, which could potentially open a few spots for promotion, if you keep your nose clean etc.

Good luck with it.
