Agreed. So many applications on web portal of NEOM and it is improbable to be selected unless you know someone inside

the way i got hired is through one of the companies that secured a contract from NEOM. I'd highly recommend searching the companies that got contract from NEOM and applying them.

The person you've asked hasn't been on the forum for 18 months just FYI - hopefully somebody else will be able to help though. You can see the date of a post on the top left of it.

HTH.

it’s tactical buyer so no idea where does that sit …
I did some YouTube search and found the campus videos but can’t identify which campus would I potentially stay in

any advise to a single woman? as a single woman at NC2 can assure you it’s very safe. I have been out driving as well to tabuk in the middle of the night alone & no issues.
is it safe? there is a huge security presence and unless you are NEOM no one else can access the camp. It is well lit and secure at all times.
I can see that there is huge lack of communication and incoherent points in on boarding process from what I can see from you all… onboarding is an issue as things are constantly changing but ask and if there is anything I can help will do so.

go with n open mind - it is challenging though so be aware of this too!

My status is still “please provide documentation” after a couple of weeks. Reached out to recruiter and hiring manager via direct email and got radio silence. No formal offer, just a telephone call to say they will offer a package once I upload the information. I’m guessing you guys received something in between (at least verbally) to give you a number to work with?

The sense of urgency during the interview process was very pacy. It’s a shame as communication, either positive or negative updates, really helps people when such big life decisions need to be considered.

Does anyone have an idea of the level of security clearance one have to go if successful. I have just been declined a security clearance for a job in the Police is this going to affect my security clearance with NEOM

Have you followed up frequently? I agree there is no reason they should leave people hanging in limbo like this if you've provided the requested information.

Guess it would depend on the reason security clearance was declined, and if that is also a concern to NEOM. If it's some petty traffic violation, then probably not.
