It is hard but it is what it is. For my case, I have the offer letter in, but when the counter-proposal was ongoing the role was eliminated due to the re-operating of the department operating model. What is do they stating in the system? Offer rejected?

I never had the opportunity to receive the offer letter. They kept me waiting for 5-months and whenever I asked for update, very generic response "awaiting approvals to proceed". My profile still shows "submit docs"

For those already at NEOM, do you use STC or Zain? if STC which package do you recommend?

Thank you in advance
I use STC and got a flexible plan when I got in. Will update at some point but still figuring out what I need.
Also, it has been said all over the place, but you really want to get a sim card at the airport when you arrive.

Hi DryC, not sure if you have looked but there is a weekly flight direct from LHR into Neom Bay Airport on a Sunday Departing 5PM. Duration only 5.5hours only, so I have requested this route personally - just awaiting confirmation.

Hi
Does anyone know why the direct flights London/Neom with Saudia seem to stop mid March onwards?

In NC1 I have wifi almost everywhere. It occasionally drops out when in the outer areas of camp where they have installed wifi into each cabin. When this happens I use the cabin WiFi (they all have a generic password so easy to use any cabin).

Hi everyone,

First I would like to thank all of you for all those great and helpful information, we highly appreciate!

Currently in the onboarding process for Oxagon and father of one teenage, I have been disappointed to see that NEOM school stop at grade 9.

I asked my onboarding team for alternative solution and tips but they didn't come back yet.

Anyone have tips r clue how to stay united family and work in NEOM with teenage ?

Thanks for your help !

Hello everyone,

For those who are already at camp, what is the process around "borrowing/renting" cars from Neom and what types of cars are available?

Thanks!

I feel for you, as my process takes months. But stay positive and keep trying. I always believe there is a place for right people to work in this project. Hopefully, there is a good news in a few weeks time.

I got my process running coming close to a year. But I believe I will somehow get there, if not this role, perhaps another one....This project required expertise from all industries to make it happen; some did not even exist. Keep on trying, Xandy.
