Very much. Especially as it's been easier for me to work here than at home due to childcare, no commute time compared to home etc. Miss friends and family but now have friends that we hold just as dear here.

That's what we were thinking Al Dente - another quick Question - you said your hubby got an offer 3 weeks after your visit - how long did the background checks take and then the CID checks? I would love to get us out there before the new tax year in the uk :-)

Hi guys,

Can Someone suggest me how to get a job in ADIA. Is there recruitment agency which hire for them. I am ready to take any small role if I have given the opportunity. I have bachelor degree in commerce from Australia. I only see top experience people getting the job by head hunt. Only few I know personally getting job through recruitment agency. Will I be able to get any entry level or mid level position. I just need a job in a good company. Cheers

I have an assessment coming with PDI ninth house.

There would be one "Real world job simulation" activity as part of the assessment process.

Can someone please shed some light on this?

Once you are booked in they will email you some background info and a little bit of an explanation so you are not completely in the dark
