Did you receive the offer letter? If yes, how many days it took you to complete the process?

It was me asking user 'Wellohorld' if he's received any offer yet.

My HR person told me it’s Monday he thinks I’ll get it. I haven’t forgotten about this. I will post my generic details. If for example they say total monthly comp is 27k AED is this purely the cash into bank amount? Or does it include the 135k accommodation allowance. Or are they all separate?

Did ADNOC fly you out to just have the "pre-employment medical" or was this done at the same time as the f2f interview? Did they pick up the cost for this?
Was there an option to have the "pre-employment medical" in London?
I have been asked by the HR analyst to do the test in London and send the findings to them for ADNOC Medical team to review before asking me to resign (after I pass) and flyout for government medical / start job.
The pre-employment medical test list to be done in London is so long that even private medical companies I contacted are questioning whether I really need it for an office job and quoting me £1500 on average.

1. Laboratory Investigation: 15 tests (complete blood, hepatitis B, liver function, etc)
2. Other tests: hearing, lung function, vision + resting heart rate
3. Special tests: stress ECG, stool general
4. Radiology: chest x-ray

Was your experience similar.

Thanks in advance
CRES
same. I can’t even find a place that offers all of this. Can you advise me?

Not unusual at all, as long as ADNOC reimburse you in full. I also had to do a very comprehensive medical in UK for QP back in Sept, though my agency weren't willing to reimburse me (I was furious at the time but it was a case of pay for your medical if you want a job). But if working direct for oc's then you're pretty much guaranteed 100% to get your medical costs back, assuming you pass the medical and have been given the green light to mobilize.

Out of interest, what package did they offer you? A month or two ago, they made me a improved offer of AED 30k per month plus 180k pa housing allowance (grade was changed from 14 to 15) but it still wasn't as good as QP so had to politely decline their offer again.

Anyhoo good luck with your new upcoming adventure with ADNOC. God I miss working in the deserts of Abu Dhabi... the deserts of Qatar are so boring in comparison lol

they are not reimbursing the cost. Offer was not the best either. But nvm. Your offer was better.

i can’t find anywhere in the U.K. that does these tests and will fill the form in. Any ideas???

TBH I’m almost shocked to hear that ADNOC won’t reimburse your medical costs. But it is what it is, so there’s not much you can do.

Wrt medical, give your nearest Bupa hospital a call. Or if you’re in Scotland, there’s plenty of providers in the Aberdeen area - such as Anchor Health Solutions who will do your medical. I suggest emailing your ADNOC medical requirements form over to the provider before handing over any cash. It’s not going to be cheap though - you’re looking at £500+

Sent you a pm with the details of the clinic who did my QP medical. I’m sure they’ll sort you out
