Default Job offer

Hi gals and boys,

Haven't been on here in a while, but received a job offer for a mid level Document Manager position in Riyadh.
Looking for some advice on salary, been offered monthly SAR 51k family status all in package, also receive company car and one air fare back home.

Does this seem reasonable considering the current financial climate and especially worried if the pound strengthens after the Brexit shenanigans are over?
Pretty much the same I was offered when I first came to KSA 6 years ago!!

TIA,
Dave

Ah, forgot to say, I'm from UK.

A lot of people use the forum just to get the info they want and then disappear until they need help again. There are still some regulars on the ME forum but if everyone who'd been helped stuck around, there'd be a lot more!

I’ll go for it. Employment opportunities in UK are very poor as there’s recruitment freeze in majority of companies or they prefer or hire within.

It’s a decent package and definitely worth the punt.

Great salary for a librarian.

When does one decide to become a professional librarian anyway?

My assistant was a librarian. Ask her for anything and she can tell you the file path immediately, I've honestly never seen anything like it.

Ask her, however, to do something different in the daily routine and you're probably going to be making her cry.

Appreciate the feedback guys, thank you.
Although there's a little more to it than a 'Librarian', but then any kind of management is difficult in the Middle East!
