Hi,

I am not quite sure as to how this part of the sentence should be structured. Should I say:

I have no problem in doing this job. I’ll get on this in the next few days and will returning it at the end of this week. I hope this time is suitable for you.

or

I have no problem to do this job. I’ll get on this in the next few days and will returning it at the end of this week. I hope this time is suitable for you.

Thanks.

    Hi,
    From an AE perspective you might say:
    I have no problem doing this job.
    I have no problem with this job.
    I have no problems...

    I'll get on it in the next few days and will return it at the end of this week.
    I'll do it over the next few days and will get it back to you at the end of the week.
    I'll get to it...

    I hope this timing is OK with you.
    I hope this timing will work for you.

    But there may be other ways of saying it in AuE.

    1. "I have no problem in doing this job."
    2. "I have no problem to do this job."
    Are the above two sentences OK or not?
    Do you say that they are not 'AE'?
    Are they 'BE'?
    Please confirm.
    Thanks,

    1. "I have no problem in doing this job." - is very particular. It suggests you do the job quite frequently and it's no problem for you. It doesn't work easily for a job in prospect, in my view.
    2. "I have no problem to do this job." - is unidiomatic.
    Are the above two sentences OK or not?
    [...]
    I find the two sentences below more natural:

    I have no problem doing this job - for something you do regularly.
    I have no problem about doing this job - for something in prospect: I am happy to undertake this job.
