    hi everyone,i am a british born chinese.I did a science degree years ago but am now looking for a career change but not sure what to do yet.I was thinking of working for a chinese employer as I've always worked with english companies.Does anyone know what good graduate jobs there are out there with chinese employers?

    Also I want to rent a single room either in North or west london.Does anyone know of any good places to rent,preferably like to live in a house with other females because guys can be really messy!

    Go to China?

    i'd prefer to stay in uk because the pay is better

    What exactly would be the idea of working for a chinese employer if you'd rather stay in the UK? There are chinese companies out there such as 3. It's owned by Hutchison Whampoa which is based in Hong Kong and in the networking equipment manufacturing industry there's Huawei which is developing extremely fast but these days loads of people work for foreign-owned companies and the experience is exactly the same. Since you're in the UK, your colleagues are most likely to be British citizens...

    The only work environment that might seem Chinese might be restaurants in Chinatown and even then, the customers are most likely to be British or tourists.
