Default Salary question

Well the time has come for me to give in and go get a job.
18 months of nothing and no kids to run around after is taking its toll and sending me a bit mad so I've been looking at a classroom assistant role here in Doha. My question is what should I expect scary wise? I have no experience as I'm a phlebotomist but here in happy land you need a degree in science to be a phlebotomist( why I just don't know) and my NHS certificate and training just doesn't cut it, so on to the classroom I go...maybe.
Can anyone give me any idea? It would be in a nursery school.
Many thanks

Not a lot.
In fact, the kind of amount that will make you think it's not worth it.

Friend of mine's wife had an interview with a school for FS1 assistant role, on a local hire contract (on his visa), they'd offer between 3-4,500 a month.

I would insist on staying on my husbands visa too so I can leave the country when I want.

Local hire in Jeddah or Riyadh or Khobar is similar. Welcome to the real world. Unpleasant.

its usually on local hire, not their visa.... and if teaching assistant it will be term time only, not paid for holidays etc. so like up to 2.30 or so.

Mrs Millhouse is a TA. She gets 5000 a month and works 7.45-3pm.

If you are doing it for the money then you won't be taking on the job. If you are doing it as you want something to do then you'll take the job. When she applied for the job she thought it was 2000/ month.

5000 a month is actually a lot of money. Clearly you don't need it so you'll be just spending it. 5000 a month is quite a lot to try and blow each month on clothes, electronic gadgets, beer. etc. It pays for a decent holiday every two months if you save it.

You will earn between 4000-7000 QR depending on which school and level of role . Hours are usually 7am- 1.30 / 2.30 pm . You get all the holidays and paid when you're off , it's a great deal .

By the way i don't work in a school but my Missus does


They're crying out for T.A's as well . Try Doha Collage / Cardiff / Montessori
