You will be informed by onboarding before you arrive. Please ask them.

Also, NEOM provides full healthcare, savings plan, school fees (if you need), monthly travel allowance within KSA, and food, laundry, housekeeping provided.

NEOM states an annual bonus of *up to* 30%. in reality what sort of bonuses do most people get?

I'd be keen to understand this as well. I've heard bonuses depend on business KPI targets and are obviously discretionary but would love to know what the bonus payouts were for the last year or two.

Depends on how well you performed. It's based on your end of year review. Will be different for everyone.

Neom don't provide a breakdown on how many people receive each category of performance rating, so we don't know what most people receive.

Each performance rating is assigned a bonus % which is applied to basic salary. It wouldn't be appropriate for us to share the bonus range as it's confidential. In any case, bonus is always discretionary so I didn't give it much consideration.

Does anyone have any idea on how long it takes to go from "Under Offer" to "In Offer"? Also, once that happens, what is next? Documentation (Degrees, Pay slips, medical pre-questionnaire) has already been completed before going into Under Offer.

From what I understand once it goes "in offer' you get a written offer and if you accept they proceed with the visa process which entails Medicals, Degree Attestation and so on? How long did all this go for people. I am trying to gauge when I will likely move. Feels like will be early next year at this rate.

Anyone using Wise ( was Transferwise) to receive your 1st pay ( inc transportation allowance) from NEOM - was a bit concerned that its going to be a bit of a lump - more then £9,000 and likely to be held while they ask a lot of questions. I have reached out to Wise to ask them if there is going to be an issue but radio silence from them so far.

who's going to ask questions? In banking world it's not a lot of money, and it will be coming from a known and trusted source.
I'm not sure if Wise will works since SAP system only accepts details of registered banks, and Wise state they are not a bank. You should be able to get a local bank account opened within the first few weeks.

There a many domestic cat (and dog) owners in Neom and there are some pet groups, but I'm not subscribed to any - sorry. Since there are so many pets I assume there is information available online.

Does anyone know what the process is like to bring my family with me? Can they come with me on a visit visa and then I apply for their iqama once I get it?

we’re going to be based in Riyadh so accommodation at Neom isn’t an issue.

Hi! This is explained about as thoroughly as it can be outside of an HR call in the Neom Job Offer thread.
Good luck!

Have any UK guys had issues with the Acro police certificate process, sent all the documents and on the 4th week, via email they asked me to resend my passport copy because it was “invalid”, just want to make sure this wasn’t a poor attempt at trying to extend the time the need to get back to me by.

New copy of my passport resent on the 20th of last month and still no certificate. Apparently I should expect it within the next 10-15 days

Thanks
