Hey Sharky,

I'm halfway through the process. Have you finished yours or are you still going through it ?

Hi all

can anyone recommend an affordable company to ship things from Australia to KSA. We’re relocating there and we want to ship some things without paying so much. Even if it’s slow shipping! Thanks so much!

Can't see why a bank transfer wouldn't be possible, but I'm sure somebody will chime in with info if it's not.
thanks for the info

What would you be bringing? We came out with two suitcases. Depending on where you are living you probably won't have much storage.

Thanks in advance

If you Google you'll find some videos on Youtube or Instagram - but you're aware that there is no family accommodation etc available for quite some time?

Hey thanks for the reply. I am aware family accommodation is some time away. Was trying to see what it looks like anyway to get a feel for it. Struggling to find on google and YouTube..any links you can share?

Are they still forecasting about 6 months at least?

Last I heard it was way longer than that (end of next year I think?), but a search of the forum will give you the most up to date info. This thread is a good starting point - Accommodation Challenges in Neom (NC2)

Afraid I haven't seen any videos myself, have just seen them mentioned on here (specifically, an Instagram account with lots of videos on) - so again, a search should chuck up some results. Good luck.

Hi All, looking for a bit more information on the situation there for Aecom staff. Are they also based in the same communities or separate? I’m discussing a move there with them but unsure what the life is like in comparison to all the Neom info I can find.

Any help would be appreciated! Thanks.

Hi,
I would like to thank you all for the great information you share in this thread.
I applied for Design Manager role using NEOM job site, and a recruiter works directly for NEOM asked for an interview which happened 10 days ago.
I didn't hear from the recruiter after the interview, I sent a follow up email to check my application status and she did not reply. I just want to know the result even if it is negative.
Is there any other way to check application status?

This happened to me as a day rate contractor. The 25% plus current salary doesn’t always apply and your final offer will hennaed upon your current salary and the max that the role is offering.
That's absolutely correct. My uplift was approximately 13%, which I am ahppy with because that's applied against the gross.

Hi All,

Does anyone know if the campus has a clinic that offers maternity check ups for pregnant women?

Thanks

Hi All,

This is a very interesting community with lots of details!

I have only just applied for a couple of jobs at NEOM careers website. As i wait to see what happens next, I'd like to get to know some Canadians who are already working there, or in the process of moving there.
I know nothing about taxation in Canada if I were earning elsewhere, taxation in the middle east, transferring money back to Canada and tax implications thereof. It would be good to know from someone who if they've already gone through this.

Thanks!!
