Default Job offer Doha

Hello all,

I've been offered a role in Doha with a monthly salary of 30,000 inclusive of accommodation and transport. I'm from Montreal, is this a good salary (its a managerial role). How much you will go into rent and food? Any insights will be appreciated.

Cheers, Dbx

Loads of variables in this such as who you are working for , project , time frame , obviously personal circumstance which are relative . It could be great or it could be shit if one of those variables is out .

Basically Qatar is shit but if you tick the boxes you can earn good cash and make it worthwhile for yourself . More detail required

Yeah, it's decent for a single.

How much you save is wholly up to you. You can find a room in a nice flatshare in West Bay, all inclusive, for 5k a month, and budget another 5k a month on food and entertainment and uber/taxis. If you work in West Bay you'll save a fortune on transportation costs. It won't be hard to set aside 20k each month to send home. I lived on 10k a month and was more than comfortable and when I left Qatar after two years I had racked up substantial savings.

ut if you want the lavish lifestyle + your own flat, you can easily spend 20k a month. Depends on priorities.

Project Managing what? Please don't say anything relating to communications.

Ignore this guy, he buy second hand pants and only eats free samples from the supermarket.
Your credit card bill should be at least 20,000 a month or you don't belong in the region.

Thanks for the replies everyone. I will be working for a Consultancy firm there and during the initial conversations i asked for 35 to 40k per month. Will push back and ask for at least 35k as i believe cost of living is going to take a huge chunk of what they are offering at the moment.

It's all 'stakeholders' and 'digital transformation' at the moment.

Ah yes, thank the Lord I don't have to work with 'Project Managers' these days. Complete set of delinquents. Almost as bad as Internal Auditors.

Good call on Financial Advisors. Probably on par with Estate Agents and Solicitors.
