Default Recruitment Agencies/Best way to relocate

Hi

Firstly apologies if I ask too many questions, am very keen to move and would appreciate any help or advice anyone has!

My husband is a Senior Quantity Surveyor with over 15 years experience, and having worked in Spain/Gibraltar for the last 10 years, we are now looking to relocate, preferably to somewhere hot that is not effected by the Euro rate!

We have gone through the usual online agencies for positions for him but I know this can sometimes be a long and often fruitless task. I would greatly appreciate any help or recommendations in any agencies or other means that people have secured work in Dubai.

I am also keen to work when we get there, am an Office Manager/P.A and also wondered if this is relatively easy to do once there.

Any assistance much appreciated, and am I right in assuming that all the bad press about Dubai lately is the usual overhyped sensational news rather than the reality of actually living there?

Many thanks

Most people on here would advise your husband to go direct to the companies that specialise in his industry. I would imagine that something like QS is pretty popular.

I am doing the same thing for my job search, although I've nothing good to report yet!

Thanks for this, think I have managed to find a list of agencies based over there rather than UK which might be better, and good luck with your job hunt !

I Haven't stayed that long here to comment on the flat rentals, but from what i have heard, i can sat flat rentals have decreased and are pretty realistic compared to the exorbitant prices of the past.

thank you
