Default Looking for a Paramedic or Firefighter position

Hi everyone, I am currently searching for a Paramedic or Firefighter position in Dubai/middle east area. I have spent countless hours searching the internet for work and am currently filling in paperwork for a job in Saudi Arabia. Can someone point me to either a recruiting agency or direct contact with some one in the "know" so to speak. I live in the USA and have been a Paramedic for 18+ years.

Appreciate the help,

Ian

At the top of the Dubai paige is a sticky thread entitled 'jobs in Dubai' with a list of agencies.

For a job as firefighter you would probably need to contact the relevant government department, although I understand pay is very low.

I have just googled for 'Dubai paramedics' and was taken straight to job sites with such posts listed....

All I see is finance, IT jobs etc in the "dubai jobs" thread. I have searched the Dubai paramedics on google and only come up with stories and such. No real leads there, however I will keep looking.

Thanks for the reply,

Ian

I hope this doesn't come out wrongly but I think you might be the wrong nationality for these jobs. They are normally taken by Asians who are terribly underpaid. So are you a firefighter or a paramedic?

I am both. I am currently working on getting a job in Saudi, I am looking for other options in other countries.

I don't think you will stand much of a chance of getting anything in Dubai. If you did the salary would be really low - about 4000 dhs a month for a paramedic, the fire fighters are paid less. They aren't western positions here.
