Hi

I'm a QS for a construction company in the UK and am looking at moving out to Dubai shortly.

Does anyone work in the construction industry and have any contacts or know of any companies recruiting?

Would be interested to find out so please let me know!

Thanks

Jordan

Hi Jordan

I am in the development and investment sector, and possibly considering making the move as well. Google a company called Macdonald and Company, they have lots of jobs that will suit you. Who do you work for in the UK?

Hi Nicksy

Thanks for the link - i'll give it a go

I work for Deeley Construction in Coventry.

I have a degree and everything else and have been told that it shouldn't be too difficult to find something. It's just starting where to look i suppose!

Maz25 is your girl for this, as she is a QS out here.

A good browse of Google should give you plenty of leads, numbers etc.

Hi Jordan,

My hubby works in the same line and he says there are many jobs out there. His own company (one of UK's top consulting firm) is also looking for QS engineers in their Abu Dhabi and Dubai offices. If you are interested, let me know at viny1sharma(at)yahoo.co.in

you can also send me your cv, if you feel comfortable.


cheers

First and foremost, forget the degree. Yes, it is required but is does not carry as much weight as your experience. At the moment, the construction industry in Dubai has turned into an employer's market, so the more experience you have, the more you are likely to succeed in getting a job. I'm sure you know the drill about tailoring your CV to the job and focussing on your experience!

There are a few recruitment companies that myself and other people have recommended in some of the older threads. If you do a search, they should come up but start with the likes of Hill McGlynn or BBT.

Alternatively, my company is currently recruiting, so if you are interested PM me (you need to have made 5 postings to be able to send PMs) and I will give you more details. My old company also has a huge presence in Dubai and Abu Dhabi and again, if you are interested, send me a PM and I will give you someone's contact details.

Yes i know about experience outweighing the degree but thought it might be beneficial just to let people know that i had one!

I will PM you now i have enough posts!
