Default Employment Questions

I am a Brit moving out to Dubai with my husband in the next couple of weeks. I will obviously be on his Visa and am currently investigating employment opportunities. I am currently working as a Publishing Support Manager for a large Publishing company in Amsterdam but previously to that was working in the Theatre in London. I would like to go back to working in the Arts or possibly conference/events/hospitality. Would anyone have any advice/leads or useful contacts.
Thanks

welcome to BE.

As for your question, I wouldn't really know, though browse through the wiki to see if there are any agencies in the list that might be of use

If you are coming here anyway then explore the opportunities when you get here... sorry can't be of more help as the usual helpers are missing...

There is a growing Arts scene over here, with many more venues due to open up (albeit in Abu Dhabi on the Saddiyat Island project - Louvre, Guggenheim, several new theatres etc). There is publishing, too, but mainly in the magazine sector - a friend of mine got a job as a staff writer just by calling up & asking. Events, corporate horse brutality & conferencing is a big business here, too - worth looking into.

Mate, it's 8:10 pm. They stopped paying me to be here at 3:30PM!!!

If i wasn't switching to BE between my proper work, I woulda been out of here ages ago!

Anyway, I can hear a steak & a glass of wine calling. Time to make like a fuse....
