Default Postgraduate architect from UK looking for job in UAE

Hi All,

I am a postgraduate from UK in the field of architecture. I am looking forward to move for work to UAE. Can anyone let me know the job scenario and prospects there, how to apply (online or should visit the place and apply in person) and salary range that I would get.

Thanks

Have a look through this website.

It should give you an idea of the local architecture companies.

Can't help you with the rest of it.

You're throwing your net wide aren't you? Same posts in Netherlands and Canada forum too?

Can I suggest you decide where you want to live first....

Yes, I am throwing my net quiet wide. I have to make options for myself and chose wisely.
Really looking for opportunities to work, learn and grow in different environments as my field offers a wide variety of experience in every country.. So, for now I am not country specific. May be by the end of discussions and looking at prospects I will be able to pin down to one..!
Fingers crossed..!

Try not to work in the ME as a newly qualified architect (though that won't be hard as there is not much available for your level).
You are better to get your experience with good western based practices, it will develop your work habits, skills, knowledge and productivity a lot more than starting from here will.
Good luck

This. Best advice..you'll fall behind. Even western practices in the ME, if you can get in at your level, do not provide the level of training and mentoring you would receive in Europe per say. But if money is what you're after...

2 years in India will work against you not for you, as to salary I have no real idea but at the level you are at you'll be competing against philipinos etc and I have seen their salaries hover around the 2-3k USD mark. Well the ones we employ anyhow

My partner worked in Bahrain at your level, she got paid about £34k annually (last time I checked, it was about £27k in London) + housing, transport and health insurance and a economy flight home annually. Her responsibilities however were more at a mid management level as compared to a bottom feeder in the UK. Pros and cons to that of course..
