Default Does anybody know??

Ok im in Dubai as my fiance goes to the American University of Shajah. I already have accomodation in Diera (cheap and cheerful shared). I thought i had a job secured but turns out that my arab boss is a bull shitter and untrustworthy. I have a diploma in vehicle mechanics with 9 years experience but this trade does not seem to be hiring at this hard time, also i have 2 years experience in composites industry. Have looked at job sites and all the rest and sent my cv out to loads but to no avail. Does anyone know anybody looking for a hard working englishman?? Im 27 and running out of funds so will take pretty much any job as long as its not slave labour lol. Thanks for reading.

Maybe you could try advertising your services as a qualified mechanic on a freelance basis as not everyone can afford to use the main dealerships.
