Hey Guys,

Hope you are well, long time reader, first time poster..

27 yo Australian, been in London for 3 years, looking to come over to Dubai after the summer.

Been working in media agencies for approx five years, closer to 6 when I come over.

Anybody have any experience with any agencies in Dubai?

Any advice/salary expectations?

Recruiter has told me that at the level I am on, should be able to get at least 25,000 per month, does this sound realistic?

Thanks guys

Hi,
From the people I know in this field - you may find it difficult to get your first break here in Dubai.
Once in, then things would be easier but you really need to get networking with people who are already established here (which is not so easy from afar!).
Best of Luck!
Cheers
Steve

Hey Steve,

I have a couple of soft leads of people I could potentially speak to.

Plenty of media recruiters in London claim to look after roles in Dubai, I would think its better to go through them than anybody locally?

Would also only work in a global agency (Aegis/Publicis etc)

Any advice or contacts from those people yo uknow would be great though?

Im great at my job i promise :)
