Highly recommended from my point of view - any specific questions, just ask - or message me!

I have seen many people asking for expected salary range, well, here is a guideline if you are planning to move into governmental departments. If you know for which grade you are being interviewed then you'll know how much you can expect.

You may try your luck in job sites I guess. I can give you a bit of hints about how many years of experience you need for these grades.

Fresh univ graduates - 8 or 9

about 2 years - 9 or 10
3-5 years- 10 or 11
5-7 years - 11 or 12
7-10 years - 12 or 13
10-12 years- 13 or 14
12-15 years - 14 or 15
15-20 years - 15
20+ years - 16

If your interview is good then you can bargain for higher grade e.g. 12 for 5-7 years of exp. You can also bargain your salary in that grade range. I haven't seen anything for grade 15/16 yet, probably its promotion based, not direct recruit, I could be wrong though.

The government pay is not exactly heart pounding, but if you like more secured job, don't like too much pressure, like to spend more time with your family then its the job for you. Office hours 7:30AM-2:30PM.

was only joking although 80,000 AED a month would be pleasant to say the least :-) And oddly enough I do have over 20 years experience so could have one if some silly civil servany is daft enough to employ me

80K sounds great alright.
But I don't think any HR dept will go that high for people who never worked with them.
So which sector you work for, SBP?

Sounds more exciting than my Electrical Engineering job where I have to work with the thing we cannot see
The only time in my life I was envy of the old people when my interviewers told me that I was too young for the grade I applied for.
