Hi there

I was just wondering, do you guys think that I need a job offer in Dubai before moving?

We are currently still in the UK.. I am a project manager in the field of education and environment. I have applied to various jobs but still no luck.... I have a degree and 15 years work experience in high level roles in London.

I was thinking of moving in early September and trying to find a job whilst im based in Dubai.

Does anyone have any experience of this?
Would you recommend me to do this?
Does anyone know if I can rent an apartment on a monthly basis?

Thanks very much... I just cant decide what to do

There are pros and cons for job searching whether to be in or out of country. The decision on that is really down to you - can you afford the time and cost of being out here looking for a position or do you need to continue earning whilst searching? It is a fairly expensive thing to do what with flights, accommodation, transport, communications, feeding yourself.

As for apartments, well you would be eligible to rent a hotel apartment, same as a hotel room but bigger and expected to be more long-term (multi-week) rather than daily. Pricing will fluctuate dramatically depending upon location, calendar, quality - and don't forget to include the Dubai Traveller tax (approx AED 10 ppn).
