Default Salary & package/ Art director

Good morning everyone,

I've been offered a move to Dubai. for a position of Digital art director, i have a 9 years experience in design and digital marketing.
I have no idea what the market in Dubai looks like right now, and i've been asked to provide a range of Salary expectation so they can propose me a package. I've heard that the nationality plays a big role in defining packages, i have never had a professional experience in the GCC region but am quiet sure of my capabilities and skills since i had the chance to work on some international budgets and brands.

I am a 30 years old Moroccan guy, single and i do speak 3 languages ( arabic and french as native tongue)

What i understood from the interview is that the company will provide a monthly salary + one return ticket home annually + medical, maybe a relocation package but am not sure if this last one is part of the Salary package or not, i need to get more information regarding this.

I'm certainly interessed in joining a high paced market like Dubai's, and i would like you to help figure out a a fair salary expectations based on my situation and worth the move .


Please let me know your thoughts and comments.
Thank you

Practically with just a title to go on you could see estimated salary here anywhere between 8k (if they're cheap and really just want a designer and hope to make up for crap pay with a fancy title..) to 40k+ (senior level within multinational advertising or design agency).

I think you'd need give a bit more info about the company, nature of clients and role's responsibilities.

Thank you for the feedback.
The agency is part of a well known international network, they are not super big localy but not cheap at all, the job is mostly creative and the responsibilities are those of a Sr. I am actually working as Mid-senior creative at a multinational agency, so the offer is for Sr. role with senior responsibilities.

As i was in Dubai as a tourist 4 years ago, i recall the life in the city to be very expensive so i am projecting 27-30K/monthly.
Is that a fair range ?
Will i be at ease knowing that i want to make some savings ( 10K/ month for example ) ? What are the kind of details in the packages should i look for ?

Thank you so much, i really appreciate the help.
