Default looking for work in Qatar, Dubai, etc...

Please help....I have been looking through all the websites in the UK for work as a 'Plumber' in the middle east...but not really getting far....
Can anyone please advise the following :
Is there any 'plumbing' work for UK based plumbers ?
What would be the average wage....monthly/yrly..
What about 'visas, accomodation, work conditions etc...
Can anyone point me in the direction of 'bona-Fide', agencies....

I would consider most locations, UAE, Saudi, Qatar even Iraq......

Thankyou
glasgojoe

Average wage? About GBP 100 a week I'd imagine.

You're up against cheap-as-chips labour from the subcontinent and the far east, who'll sleep 10 to a room, eat a handful of rice each day and accept wages less than the Big Issue sellers make.

As the other posters say, not a runner. Unless you have a PHD in plumbing and are able to manage a plumbing division.
