Thanks for the advice, I don't think we would be going for the same jobs!! Thank God!! I know that a degree would be an advantage but some of the most successful people in the world never got a degree.
Also, I don't fancy taking a career break to go back to uni and get a degree. I love working and the challenges it brings!! I am hoping I can find a good opportunity but I have been trawling the jobsites and found little available.
I wish you good luck in your search too and with your skillset im pretty sure you will be in dubai sooner than me.
