Default Should I Come or Stay?

Hi,

I have been offered a position at a Dubai Bank as a Cash Management Business Development Manager.

They have offered:

30,000 Dhs per month
850 Dhs per month Car Allowance
250 Dhs per month Phone Allowance
32,000 Dhs Education Allowance
1 return trip for the family per year

15,000 Dhs relocation costs

The issue I have is whether the package is any good but, also, I need to be able to pay for my wife and children back home until they move out to Dubai which will cost about 18,000 Dhs per month.

Any thoughts?

What about housing allowance?Rent can be quite expensive here.Also is the education allowance per child per year?Coz tuition fee can cost 30000-50,000 per year. Everything else is relative to your lifestyle.

From the way that the contract has been worded, the housing allowance is built into the 30k per month from what I can see.

The education allowance is a set amount so for 2 kids if their fees are 50, I get 32 and find the rest. If their fees are 25, I get 25.

Change of thoughts?

Thanks.

Thanks.
For early years in a decent school, you are looking at 32k to 35k. After the first two years, you are looking at usualy 38 to 42k for a decent enough school, but some are a bit higher like 45k.

30k isnt leaving much after school fees and housing for a family. Suggest to go back and ask for a higher school fee allowance. You will need a vehicle with a family in my opinion. Minimum would be 2500 for a decent car. You can get a yaris box for less then 2k, but I wouldnt put my cats in those driving on sheik zayed....

Oh, and 12k for you without housing, having to pay for transportation, will be strained until your family comes over. And then I would guess on that as its, would be strained once they got here.

They will give me a 75k car loan as well which is charged at preferential interest rates too but still don't know what rate that is or for how long the loan would be.

Turkish expat is on a distinguished road

Users Flag! Originally from turkey. Users Flag! Expat in uae.
Default Turkish expat candidate in need of advice

Hello there,

Im a single 32 yr old electrical engineer with 6 yrs of Project Management experience in Turkey and I recently got an offer from a global company operating in Silicon Oasis free zone and the package is as follows:

13500 AED /month basic salary
1900 AED / month transportation support inc. car insurance (1550 + 350)
5883 AED /month acco support
private health and life insurance
6 months of rent in advance
5000 AED moving support for once
24 days of annual leave with 2 round tickets
17% bonus from basic income

Do you think, it is worth a try to be an expat in Dubai. I assume it will look good on the resume but I will quit my current job in Istanbul and besides, from what I read, it is harder to promote or develop a career there....
I do not want to get stuck with same package for years...
