UAE EMPLOYMENT

Jump to last reply

I have been offered a job as an Executive Assistant to the CEO of a corporation in Abu Dhabi. I am a single woman with many years experience in running and organizing an office , plus I have lived in Cairo, Egypt for five years previously.

Now, I am 52 years old--the CEO (cousin gto the Royal family) never asked my age....my background is nursing and I told the woman at the Embassy that that would be irrelvant to this position and I was not gooing to emphasize it at all. I do not plan on working there as a nurse and I that degree is not needed here.

Do they require a degree in a relevant field to work in the UAE? I listed the nursing on the resume. Also am I too old to get a residence permit?

I have not signed a contract and I wish to be advised by someone who works there.

I would be compensated highly for my experience plus living accommodation and car with driver.

I hear Abu Dhabi is lovely and the photos support this.

Thanks for your help
