Covid-19 Job thread?
Looks like there well be a lot of jobs lost over the coming weeks, and months.

Is it worth pinning a thread at the top to see if we can help each other out? I seem to remember this happening quite well back in 2008.

After 10 months out of work got an offer through today which I’ll be taking up. Will have to relocate Dubai to Doha but could be worse.

Any TETRA people out there?

Middle East probably UAE but definitely not KSA. Test & Acceptance Manager - ticking boxes, basically. Again Whomail me a contact address and I'll pass it on.

You'll need to sort out travel yourself as my plane's still on order.

You need to decide what you want to do first, then look at the opportunities. If there are few, decide whether or not it's worth fighting for those few roles. If not, choose something else. You'll have to keep doing this until you settle on what suits you.

Nobody can tell you what you want, but it may help if you indicate what you're moving from and any ideas of where you'd like to be.

Re: Covid-19 Job thread?
Does anyone on here deal with careers advice? I'm 40 and looking for a career change and I can't settle on what to go learn.

The most obvious issues are a lack of experience and age. No point retraining if there's no serious prospect of employment.

Has anyone else changed careers later on in life?

Things are pretty much the same with the new Sultan. To make some sort of impact statement he's accelerated the "Omanisation" program to try and get more local people in jobs and reduce the number of expats.

The British do, however, seem to be exempt from this; my team was "raided" twice - a "raid" being the Immigration department checking that we are actually doing the jobs we were given a visa for.

I was questioned/interrogated quite deeply but they eventually decided my position was valid. German & French colleagues didn't fare so well - told to pack and leave within 24 hours - even though their jobs more closely matched their visa job description.

That being said, even the officials were friendly and courteous throughout.

If it wasn't for the religeon and the fact that it is so expensive there, it wouldn't be a bad place to select a retirement home..

I did some work in Oman three years back and they were very expat friendly. Have things changed since the death of Qaboos bin Said Al Said?

Re: Covid-19 Job thread?
I jacked it,was made various promises but they never came through. On the Tuesday I was cold and fed up with having to struggle so I rang the planner and headed back to base.

A lot of truck driving is self employed(for now) and since Brexit a lot of flip flops have gone home so plenty of jobs and even wage rises.

I jacked a job on Tuesday , rang one up on Thursday , interview today , start Monday.

Get an HGV licence and you will never be out of work.

Do you not have to complete any notice period, or are these roles generally contract/fixed term?

Or did you just walk out of your last one?

Re: Covid-19 Job thread?
If anyone fancies an IT job in the Middle East, PM me contact details and I'll pass them on.

This is fuck all to do with me, it's a favour for a friend. 3 roles (Systems Administrator, Field Service Engineer and one more (I've actually lost the details, but its more managerial than the other two). Mobile phone networks,

I don't have the country, but I strongly suspect it's not Oman given that the government there seem hell-bent on kicking all expats out. Tunisia or Saudi would be my guess, but I honestly don't know.
