Cheers
Dear Aussie_mate, I was wondering if you could please share your experience on preparing for ADIA? I have my PDI Tests in the next week. Your assistance is much appreciated.

It took me about a month. That was earlier than up to 2 months initially mentioned, although in others have previously mentioned it took longer for them, so I think it can vary...

Don't worry, if you have a conditional offer then the contract will follow. I think mine took about 6 weeks!!

Dear All,

I am currently being interviewed by Abu Dhabi Investment Council. I have read this thread and the information available is extremely helpful about Abu Dhabi Investment Authority. There are few questions is my mind which I could not get to the bottom due to lack of info in the net.

Can I assume the work, culture and salary will be similar to ADIA? I mean the allowances, etc. I am paid nearly GBP 100k in UK all inclusive bonus, etc.

I would be grateful if I can get some interview tips and also what to expect at the end (salary) if I finally qualify. Also if the interview process is as rigorous as in ADIA.

Salaries are on a case by case basis - but they will definitely offer better than what you're on, so don't worry about that

Hi Riina,

How long have you worked in ADIA? Do you enjoy working there?

I recently received an offer from them and is confused about the joining allowance.

It talks about "allowance will deprecate over two years, 60% in the first year, 40% in the second year" Does it mean you get paid joining allowance each of the three years?

Thanks in advance!

The depreciation point is a bit confusing but simply means that if you were to leave in the first 12 months then you are entitled to 60% only (ADIA) will write off 60% in first year in their books..this will mean you pay back 40% if leaving in first 12 months

Your headhunter should be able to answer any questions - what role have you been offered?

Hi,

Sorry I don't know the answer to that - I expect the security checks etc will be the same but I can't comment on if ADIC and ADIA interview processes are similar.

Broadly speaking ADIA initially conduct a panel interview and if successful, you're invited to an assessment centre. Following this if successful you are then invited out to AD for a site visit where you have further meetings.

That's the process in a nutshell

Thanks Riina, This is very helpful! I did ask my headhunter but he explained this wrong (paid three times etc..)--- I thought it was a bit strange. I applied for a position in non-investment department (p grade)

Riina, the contract is three years? do you expect any increase at performance review each year? or are they going to stay the same over the contract period?

Thank you!
