I think that you'll find that there are some stirrings of life in Dubai however that is mainly focused on the reactivation or completion of existing projects in places like Business Bay, JLT, Dubai Marina, the Palm etc. Don't get me wrong, there are a few new projects - I notice Meraas is pushing ahead with its 3 Jumeirah projects for example and of course work on infrastructure is still going ahead.Hi,
I am considering looking for work in dubai as manager in construction
is the industry recovering after the recession?
any info would be greatly appreciated
Have they begun to do any of the work for the World Cup yet?Having moved over from Qatar - it takes a lot of hardwork landing a job there. A lot of networking is required - but don't skip the usual hunting grounds, i.e. recruitment agencies there, online job sites, LinkedIn. Pop your head over into the Qatar board.
And good luck!
I'm not certain been out of Qatar past 6 months - I don't believe construction has begun, more like design stages for the World Cup 2022 I think.Have they begun to do any of the work for the World Cup yet?
Thanks, I'm not looking for a job. Just wanting to sell stuff to the people doing the work. Looks like we are lucky to have all GCC countries (besides Saudi) so we can follow the work.Red_Nosed said:I'm not certain been out of Qatar past 6 months - I don't believe construction has begun, more like design stages for the World Cup 2022 I think.
When Qatar had to host the Asian Cup 2006, it almost looked like the games had to be held in the previous host country having the construction projects run so badly behind schedule! Having said that, there are actually quite a few projects that should be running now (possibly in the early construction stages or design stages) couple of examples would be the Aviation City and the Railway project (cannot remember what else). I believe they're quite busy in Qatar.
Many experience what fcjb1970 went through in the process of getting hired - some companies may have problems getting visas or, like me (I waited 6 months for my work visa to come through) having got hired when there was a clamp down on female hires just made things extremely difficult or just having unreliable PROs not chasing through paperwork with MoI.
There's always something .....
Qatar is doing some work, mainly at the airport and also a bit around the city of DOHA, but not a lot yet. I met with a company there owned by the royals and they say 2014/2015 is when most of the work will be in full swing.
Oman, our company won some there, but again it is still slow.
Good luck with your searches
