Does anyone have any ideas about wages in Dubai, costs and general work conditions ? what is in your opinion a decent salary for a consultant ?

i know that accomodation and high prices are a real problem.. does anyone have any field knowledge ?

Hi Hisham_A

It all depends. What sort of area(s) your consultancy is? Also, it all depends which country you are applying from? I have a Nephew / work office located there so I can always ask for you.
Thanks

Thanks happybrain,

i have some general information from friends working there and everybody say it is horribly expensive, especially accomodation, but need more details...

Hicham,

My brother in law is a sales man he just being offered a job there from what he told his sister he was offered a fantastic package.
Because of the "English taboo", he never discuss saleries with me or anything conserning his wealth, however if you wish I can always ask her to ask him.

Regards

Dubai is a tax free heaven , a lot of jobs offer accomodation as well, i lived in Dubai 2 years and in europe , i can guarantee to you that Dubai is much much better, fantastic place to live in , and to make a fortune , i am not sure which field you are specialised in but if you browse on the net ther are plenty job agencies you have to pay a fee for their services and they will be able to give you more information
my advise look for a job which offers accomodation as part of the package

Thanks Adds and whatsup,


actually it is about an job opportunity, and i am collecting as much information as possible to be able to negotiate good terms, after passing some interviews and tests off course, i have a close friend working in dubai and living in charQa, he told me that accommodation is very expensive and that he paid about 20 thousand € for a one year rent, all beforehand, in addition to daily commuting to and forth, that is why accommodation is a key factor,

i was just starting enjoying the sun flblad when this mail came from nowhere, thanks anyway...
