Default Events Industry Work...

Hi all,

I'm looking for a job in the events industry in UAE. I worked in Dubai back in 2007/2008 but came back to the UK (after a brief spell in Kuwait.)

I'm now looking to move back again more permanently. I'm a Lighting Technician / Designer / Programmer for theatre, conferences, events. Currently working in London.

Does anyone know of any companies I could approach?

Many Thanks,

Andrew

Hi Andrew,

Try Pencell- www.pencelldubai.com Also get in touch with Bareface, they may be able to point you in the right direction

I worked in events in the UK and be prepared for alot of unorganized, unimaginative, low standard companies out here! Can be very frustrating! .

Good luck!

What about your contacts from when you were last in Dubai?

Hi Andrew

The best thing you can do right now is sending your CV to recruitment agencies in UAE and hopefully this will be the best way to get a good job. If you want i can send to you some good recrutiment agencies name here. and beleive me it will work.

Are these agencies guaranteeing work?

Madinat Theatre and DUCTAG at Mall of the Emirates would be a good start.

Hi all,

Thanks very much for your posts. I have looked at all the companies and theatres which you have suggested and sent a CV to most of them.

@Shery - please could you suggest some agencies for me to try with. The only one I know of is Creative Personnel, I am on their books but they don't seem that busy at the moment.

Best,

Andrew
