Hi,Hi ! My husband had recently been offered a job in Dubai, but he has not even had an interview. Obviously this is worrying. How do we deal with only genuine employers and what should we look out for when dealing with recruitment agencies ? Very new to everything and most of the jobs we see would apply to registered general nurses rather than mental health nurses and so we realise finding the right job will take time, despite him being extremely qualified and experienced. Thanks in advance for all of your help.
Welcome to the forum.
Obviously, alarm bells should be ringing if you get a job offer without any sort of interview.
It is illegal to charge candidates to get jobs in the UAE - so you need to lookout for "advance fee scams". This involves asking you to pay "processing fees" or ticket fees to a travel agency - with the promise of a refund when you arrive in the UAE.
Of course, the crooks take your money - no real job and no refunds.
Most of the hospitals in Dubai have HR departments and advertise jobs on their own websites - so try looking there.
