Default Getting a job in Dubai

We are looking to move from London to Dubai in 2008, any advice on good recruitment companies in Dubai or how to get a job without actually being in the UAE? Thanks

I'm with you there mate. I decided to pack my job in 5 years ago, had lived in the Toon all my life, buggered off to Oz, had the greatest year of my life, saw some amazing things, met some amazing people, met a lovely lass - brought her home, bought a flat, now we're married, rented flat out and live over here - life's too short for regrets.

Thats what its all about....

Nothing worse than thinking 'Should I have done this, should I have done that?'.. Far better to be able to say 'Tried it and loved it' or 'Didnt work out, but still learnt from it'.......................
