I've gone back and asked for 46,000 AED / month as a minimum. Let's see what they come back with. Thanks again.

Default Emaratech

Hi,

I heard through the grapevine that Emaratech is looking for qualified Director level people with lots of experience. Look for them on LinkedIn; I believe the head of HR is on there.

Default Environmental Engineer

Hi all,
I am an environmental engineer in US working on designing water and wastewater treatment plants. My company is opening an office in Dubai and asked me to move there. Our office over there is in Academic City. But first few months of the job will be traveling to Saudi and Doha for weekdays and come back on weekend, so i would like to live in between academic city and airport. I have 7 years of experience and make around $90,000 in US. I havent done any negotiations about money yet and wanted to get an idea what money should i be looking for saving around $30,000/year. I am single, no kids.

Any civil/environmental engineers in this community who could tell me the going rate for this kind of work and with my experience.

Thanks

Wife and I just moved to Dubai and is a Civil Engr(also 7 years exp) but not for wastewater treatment. She's a highway design engr. I can have her talk specifics but would be better off doing it via PM. We do know there is a premium paid to Water and Wastewater design vs highway design even back in the States.

Default package expectations

Dear @ll

I'm actually working for an international company in Switzerland. The company would like to send my to the Middle East to build the business and also may a brach office. I would be responsible for Middle East and North Africa as an Area Sales Manager. It is actually planed that I would live in Dubai. I would go together with my family ( wife and two children, school age). My question now: What salary can I expect? What should be in included in the package? I would be happy about your experiences and recommendations.

Hi moneyb,

You can think of living in International City, outskirts of Dubai but good for ya. USD 30000 will amount to 100,000 Dhs, so you should save around 8000 dhs per month, I would say anything between 25-35K is good, the more the better as you would be travelling most of the time. Being single definitely will save you the amount you have in your mind, perhaps more than that

Hi,
I have just undergone a telephone interview recently for a Music Teaching Job in Abu Dhabi. I am a freelance drummer and tutor based in the UK and have been offered to work in a music school at 120dhs per hour for a minimum of 30hrs a week but been told i can work up to 60hrs a week if there are more lessons available and I wanted the work . Been offered accommodation allowance along with flights and health care etc although i am waiting for the exact amount from that. it is for a years contract.
I have a mortgage at home and home bills I will need to take care of, along with my living expenses in Abu Dhabi and would like to save some money to come home with.
Will it be enough? I am single in my late 20's and will be travelling alone. I am not a massive party person and don't really drink, despite my line of work.
In my head, i'd like the sound of living away, I travel a lot with different tours etc but never stay in one place long enough. I just wouldn't want to move away for a worse quality of life than what I currently have. Also My UK Earnings are roughly 30-38k per year depending on how busy I am.

Thanks in advanced.
