Default Bank / Abu Dhabi / Package

Hi all,

Could someone kindly advise on what a reasonable package would be for a mid-level banking role (10 years experience) in Abu Dhabi?

I am currently in negotiations and I have a feeling they are trying to low-ball me.

Sorry the department is Financial Reporting. Essentially it involves analysis and implementation of accounting rules, processes and systems.

Give the guy a break - he's new here.

Hyperguy, I can't help it isn't my industry. IndieG is the poster in the know - I'm sure she'll give you an answer.

As Sheikhy said Indie will be able to help as she in banking, be mindful that salaries do differ between AD and Dubai.

Is it a local or Int Bank?

It is a local bank. I figured salaries may differ between Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
Thanks

I do not have any children so schooling is not an issue. What they indicated verbally is that it is the total cash compensation. There was no mention of housing.

Is housing in AD really 250K AED and upwards? I have been browsing the web for property rentals sites, however, there is not much out there. There definitely seems to be more availability in Dubai.

Abu Dhabi is an island and, although they have started reclamation projects and building inland projects, there is less availability of desirable property compared with dubai.

You may find lower-rent places, but they would tend to be in non-expat areas and really not very nice. When I left, you could get a nice 2 bed on the corniche for around 150K DH pa - others should be able to confirm if that's still the case.
