Default Project Architect - looking for work in the Middle East

Hi. Blue Cat & Slingshot suggested I pick your collective brains.

I have been made redundant, and am actively looking for a new position - before my visa runs out! I have 5 weeks left, and with a family and a villa in tow, I need to move quickly.

I am a Senior / Principal Project Architect with 11 years experience of runnning high-end commercial, residential and hospitality projects.

I came to Dubai in June to be Project Architect for the Four Seasons Hotel, Dubai, and have now been let go as the project has been put 'on hold'. I am also considering Design Manager positions with Contractors, as well as roles with Consultants.

If you have any ideas of companies which are hiring, or projects which are starting on site, please let me know.

Thanks for your help

friend of mine lost his job at Four Seasons as well, one thing I do know is that your end of service package will be exactly what you are due legally.

Unfortunately I wasn't working for one of the main contractors / consultants, so I wasn't employed directly.

Focusing on the new job for now.
