Default Dubai IT jobs - advice needed please

Hi,

I need your help so I can find out if it's viable for me to work in Dubai. My role in IT is Microsoft Systems Administrator (MCSA Server 2003). My concerns are twofold:

1) Can I find work in Dubai or is the IT market dominated by workers from India?
2) If I can find work, are the pay rates any better than those in London?

Any advice would be fantastic.

Thanks.

If you have several years managerial experience and can show that you are a specialist then yes, you can get a reasonable well paid job.
