What is the best way to look for a job in Dubai from myself and for my husband? We are both UK citizens and we are both trying to find a job outside the UK ...

I'm wondering whether there are recruitment agencies in Dubai?

:)

Hi,
What do you both do?
Cheers

I looked at her post history and she's an engineer (I was hoping she'd be a hair stylist or makeup artist). Husband's occupation is undefined but he has taught English in the past. I assume it meas English as a second language rather than secondary school English

She's asking similar questions on multiple country threads.

OP: you are probably a junior or midlevel engineer and the best approach is to look up all the major engineering and A/E/C firms like Atkins and AECOM and Parsons and WSP as they will have job recruitment websites and positions advertised. Just be aware competition is stiff. These firms generally only go to professional headhunting/recruitment firms for senior or very specialist roles.

ESL teachers do exist but are not common.

I studied computer engineering and he's an electrical engineer. Both of us have less than 3 years of experience.
Forget Dubai - you will simply be competing with other engineers from India, Pakistan, Philippines etc. - who will do junior engineering jobs (and have degrees) for around 3000 to 5000 AED per month.
