20k - 23k all inclusive if the guy has a stellar profile... more likely 17k - 19k for someone who does not have experience in multiple implementation projects...

And in the spirit of giffing...

Hello All,

Just have a couple of queries regarding a recent offer I have. I wanted to know if it will be sufficient for a single person and also if possible, what other expenses should I consider (rental agency fees etc)

The offer goes: (in AED)

- 9k base salary
- 500 transport allowance
- 550 utility allowance
- medical insurance inc.
- 60k per annum accommodation allowance (excluding furnishings)
- meals are provided on duty
- yearly return ticket
- 30 calendar days leave (I have yet to clear this out)
- 6 months probation

Its a 48 hours per week job, though not stated in the contract. Also, the company is around Dubai Marina area so it's feasible if I can rent nearby (it's steep, I know but I'm open to any suggestions location wise)

So first question, is this a good start or should I negotiate further? Would I be able to save up?

What other factors should I be aware of when the company offers to pay accommodation. I understand that rent increases by some percentage per year so would this usually be taken into consideration in the contract?

Thanks in advance guys.
This isnít really such a terrible offer. If you can get them to kick up the housing to 80k I reckon youíll be sorted for a decent single life here. Youíll be able to save about 5k I think, but thatís boring anyway.

Also if youíre in analysis be prepared to work some stupid hours in the month end / reporting periods.

What will be critical for you is the schooling and housing budget that you are offered. I am not sure about Abu Dhabi but schooling costs per child in Dubai are easily AED 45k per child and a five bedroom house can easily cost AED 300k/yr.
Thanks very much for the reply. The advice and tips I gathered on this website are really handy as I am better prepared for this new experience.
All other advice is welcome.
Again, Thanks

Default URGENT HELP - Offer Arrives and Need advise Urgently

Hi all

Am new here and have read some of the reply's which all seem to be very helpful.

I just received an offer over night (I'm Australian) and its not what I was expecting at all!

But then maybe I have it wrong.... It's just me - no kids

I'm in sales - this is a Key Account Managers Position

Your total monthly package will be AED 17,500 per month. Break up as follows:
Salary Break Up in AED

Basic Salary 8,025
Housing Allowance 7650
Transport Allowance 1825
Gross Salary 17,500

there is a laptop, phone, full medical and flight home also.

I am shocked by the Base amount ..... I was expecting double this amount?

If you could get back to me as soon as possible it would be very much appreciated as they want my signed agreement back in 24 hours! Thanks in advance
