Hello,

I got an offer from ADNOC group recently for Grade 15. They are offering a slary of AED 25,000 + 200,000-accomodation + 35,000-per child education & end of service benefits.

Is this package similar to what others in ADNOC at grade 15 get? Or is it less??The HR guy said the package for grade 15 is standardized across the organization and cannot be offered more than this.

What will be the average cost of living for a family of 4 (2 adults, 2 kids) like? How much will be the savings per month?

I will be joining them from India.

Thanks - will appreciate your responses in detail.

Hi,
Welcome to the forum.
Cannot specifically comment on ADNOC salaries - but if your accomodation and school fees are fully covered by the company, then a family of 4 could comfortably live on around 10,000 AED per month - if you dont eat out at 5 star hotels.
This is based on car at 3000/month, two phones 500/month, utilities in Abu Dhabi 1200/month, food 5000/month and petrol 300/month.
Cheers
Steve

Hi,
Villas vary dependent on location.
Justrentals.com is a good place to get an idea of rental costs - you can filter search by budget, type, location etc and it gives average rentail prices for each area.
Cheers
Steve

Hi Imaac, how much it should be? Do you work with ADNOC? 25k is all inclusive - basic plus allowance plus air fare, water electricity. He said this is maximum ADNOC offers.

allowances are set for grades... housing, education etc... those cannot be negotiated...

basic on the other hand, can (and should) be negotiated...

i cannot tell you how much it should be, it varies based on role and your own profile...

i can just tell you that my opinion is, for grade 15, 25k is low...
