Hi axels,

Welcome to BE, and congratulations on your job offer!

I don't know anything about working in the Middle East, so I've moved your thread to our ME Job discussions forum. I'm sure one of our members will be along soon who can offer some pointers. In the meantime have a read through some of the other threads in this section.

hi,
You can currently get a 1 bed from about 40k a year, 2 bed 50-55k. Prices are still coming down. I stay in a 1 bed apartment with central air and I pay 60AED for electric and water a month( Yes £10!).

You can hire a car such as a sunny for about 1500-1800 a month,I think, so your figures may be OK for utility and transport. I get a car so do not pay for it. However, there are more Emiratis in Al Ain which means that the driving standards are lower than Dubai/Abu Dhabi. They truly are shit drivers.

There is a bumper thread in this forum on Al Ain, but beware it is very dull and there is not much to do as a single. (3 hotels with bars). It may be worth looking at Dubai (such as Silicon Oasis/Dubailand for apartments starting from 30K AED year and commute) Depends what your hobbies/interests are.

Things are a bit funny economy wise down here as the Municipality seem to have stopped spending money. This is affecting a lot of local companies who are laying off staff that depend on these contracts. My office has lost about 15% of staff this year because of this.

22 days seems a bit tight, but check it is working days and not total days as they can use weekends up on your holiday allowance

If you want any further info you can PM me.

Did I say it was dull, very dull...
