Expat Network Jobs Newsletter

Welcome to the Expat Network Jobs newsletter for May. As well as links to some of the many new job opportunities available at www.expatnetwork.com, we explore some of the many issues affecting your working life as an expat – or would-be expat.

In this edition we are keen to help you make sure you register or re-register with Expat Network so that you can fully enjoy all the many benefits available to you on registering.

This month we consider the growing threat from malaria to expats on assignment - and the risks to their employers/recruiters.

We also look at what is normally a taboo subject: expats and mental health.

We would also like to remind you that we are here to help. So if you have any queries about expat jobs or other topics don’t hesitate to drop us an email. We love to hear from you!

Living & Working In China

Protection from mosquito bites is not being taken seriously even by professionals in the travel risk business, a new survey has found. Less than a quarter of organisations have pre-travel health programmes in place. Data from medical and travel security risk services company International SOS shows that malaria represents an increasing proportion of offshore medical and accident or injury cases, such as on oil and gas rigs, rising from 13% of all medical cases in 2014 to 41% in 2016.
