not quite sure how I should read this...but what have you done so far ?
I would be very careful in moving to foreign place and change industry at the same time. Headhunters need to have the knowledge and the network of the local market to be successful...you have neither so it will be a very difficult position to start with.....

how do you come about "being headhunted" for such a position ? If I may ask...

Good luck anyway !

Hi Lenochka

I am currently working in Dubai, have been working and travelling around the ME region for about 5 years and working within the construction industry.

Basically I went to a networking event for recruiters and job seekers and I met a MD and he was keen for me to join. I have been researching executive search for over a year now but I am just keen to figure out the local career market.

Kind Regards
Aaron

I just have a general comment about shifting to a new place where a better package is being offered. You should spend more time asking about the place you are going to move to and talking to the people you are going to work with especially your manager rather than be worried if your package is good enough.

Moving to a new place is always a challenging thing. You should be in particular careful with organizations that are just kicking off having no strategy setup yet, no policies or procedures and more importantly no fixed organization strcuture. Such organizations can be very chaotic, changes take place very often with deadlinespushing you hard and may cause undesirable outcomes if you are not careful.

Also, where a very attractive package offer is being floated, I find it very strange why some people miss asking more detailed questions about their actual work and what they will be involved in. Guys, where you get paid more, u have more responsibilites and extra hours to work so do ask whatever you want before you sign the actual contract and leave your old employer.

Does any one has an idea about how much a commerce school teacher should be getting in "Very good" British School in dubai (part of the obvious biggest educational group).
i have through the initial screening interview and waiting for the next one. I am an Asian expat in dubai with a western academic background up to postgraduate degree. i do not have teaching experience but i do have some related experience.

Default hello expat

HI

i recently moved,

look you will get very decent accomodation - at about AED 5000 per year for a studio - now the question here is that you may have to pay a few months in advance to actually be able to move in - in the first place.....

you would need about 1500 aed a month for food etc....

whats your situation on transport ?

after what you describe and i see as your bills - you have about usd 1000 left in your hand a month ?
