Quick Salary/Benefits Question

Hi, I'm guessing there are a lot of salary/benefits questions so I'll try to keep this quick: I'm beginning to look into moving to Dubai and I am looking for some guidance about what range of salary/benefits package I should be asking for as I don't want to get ripped off and want to compare with ot...

Re: Can anybody explain me Cricket rules ?!

I really really dont get it !!? anybody help ? If you understand Baseball then this link should help explain it quite well. If you don't then the link is still fairly useful in attempting to explain Cricket to those who did not have the fortune to grow up with it. http://members.tripod.com/~sccwa/c...

I know I'm a bit late with this but my 2c. Like in Dubai "enough" is variable. I know people here in Dubai who say they "couldn't live on less than 50,000 dhs/month". If you're one of those people then 65k in London probably won't meet your expectations. If you need to have a Mer...

Do you have Kids? If not then for a basic comparison work out: UK pay - UK tax - UK rent = X Dubai pay - Dubai rent = Y And compare X and Y. As a guide a 1 bed flat can be had for between 100-120k dhs. You can also spend a lot more, but that's up to you. General living costs work out fairly similar ...

Re: Arabic Lessons

There is a very well respected course run at the Trade Centre (very close to DIFC) will try and find contact details. The other options may be in Knowledge Village?
