Default Abu Dhabi, Al Hosn Gas

Hi,
I am going to an interview for a job with Al Hosn Gas which provides a salary and housing package.
I am also wanting to take my gf who has a degree in Law but no experience yet and she does not mind working her way up, can you see any problems of her getting any type of job out there and enjoying our lives together over there?
It is going to be a big leap of faith as i am leaving a good job in England for a possible new life over in Abu Dhabi.
Offering $4000 a month plus housing
Any advice or opinions would be greatly recieved
Thanks
James Masshedar

Check out the Dubai forum as well and there will be plenty of information to help.
I very much doubt your girlfriend will be there legally with you as you are supposed to be married if living together & to be resident.
Checks are made the Govt red tape is quite thorough.

Check the housing very very carefully, its now 3 yrs since I lived there, but I would think that reasonable housing for yourself will require about AED 150,000

If housing supplied where is it? Abu Dhabi encompasses a large area, if you are out in Mussafah, its a long way into town for your social life.

There is housing and housing!! Do not think its a cheap place, yes you are tax free (as long as you satisfy the UK tax man rules) but a lot of things are clawed back in the way of high charges for state utilities. phone internet booze.

Do a lot of research, best of luck

Hi Mate,

I have an interview with the same company on Saturday this week, far too excited and I feel like Ive jinxed myself by joining an Expat site already :-/ If you dont mind my asking, what position are you being interviewed for?

I'll (hopefully) be going with my wife and daughter and from all the research ive done, it would seem that they have company accomodation that you stay in. I believe that may be optional though. If I get it my salary will also be $4000, but with overtime $5000, so I wonder if we're going for the same job?

Have either of you heard anything from Al Hosn Gas? I also had an interview where they said it would take two weeks for the contract to come through. Still waiting 3 weeks later with no contact.

Hi mate,

What role did you apply for? I'm still waiting for an offer, apparently we should hear something tomorrow, wouldn't hold your breath though. Welcome to the waiting game.

The offer comes first, the contracts are a while off yet, everyone who was in London is waiting for the email rejection/offer. It's been a long 3 weeks.

Tomorrow then, did they get in touch with you or did you phone the recruitment agency?

The sooner the better so I can either go for it or pass and continue with other opportunities. Everything is on hold until this offer comes in.

No nothing for me either, I did speak to the recruitment agency and they told me the same "I'm 1 of 32 going to receive an offer". The wait continues....

I'm needing to either cancel holidays or bite the bullet and book flights.

I think it's all ********. He told me they were sending out 70 offers in total, 30 in the 1st batch and the rest in a "second batch" I'd rather they just say "sorry, you didn't get the job"

What was the name of the guy u spoke to? Was it Danesh or something like that?

No it was Vish. I think they're just very busy and as long as they're doing their homework and getting together a good package I'm OK with waiting a few more days. He was very positive when I phoned him and took the time to talk to me.
