Hello everyone. I’m assuming no offers will come out until after the new years. Has anyone heard anything ?

I received a verbal offer via a headhunter just prior to Xmas so am now about to start the long arduous “process”

Having lived abroad twice before (Asia) I’ve dug out old packing lists & I’m starting to get my head around what I might need

From camp residents experience, what do you wish you had taken with you & what do you wish you had left at home

I will be unaccompanied so no need to worry about family stuff

My last communication with HR was on 21st of this month.I was told my formal offer letter will be processed after I re-upload one of the documents. I re-uploaded the document, and although receipt of it was acknowledged, nothing further has been heard from them.

I am a UK expat currently in KSA, have been working in a railway company for nearly 4 years and looking for a change of scenery. Therefore was interested to explore the state of play at Neom. A few basic questions if people could help with:

* What is it like (currently) for the young families to be in Neom. I see plenty of posts on camp accommodations etc. If married contracts are being offered, what are the arrangements of schools (if any).
* How far are the work locations from camps and the offices. What are the approx. commute times to these work places from the company provided accommodations? I know Tabuk is a big city however that is 2 hours away. Do they have any offices in Tabuk or is everything based in Neom?
* What sort of benefits are being offered as part of the package? The standard in the KSA is 10% travel allowance (usually capped) and 25% housing allowance of the basic salary, plus the usual yearly flight tickets to country of origin. What sort of salaries are being offered for Western expats with 15+ years experience?
* How are the western expats being headhunted for roles in Neom? if anyone could share a HR contact who specifically recruits UK/Western Rail professionals that would be much appreciated.

I have more questions but for now if someone could endeavor answering the above, i would be ever so grateful.

I am new to the forum. Can any member please clarify the following:
- Can we work during weekends (Friday/Saturday) and get compensation days in-lieu for making short trips to home in the UK.
- If we opt for single status, can we get multiple air passages instead of annual family air passage?
- Is there good vegetarian options available for food in NEOM canteen?

Dear members,

Is anyone from Manchester? Are they allowed to tell us the travel allowance given for Neom to Manchester?
(I was told its IATA average fare for the year but not quoted any amount)

Thanks

Hey there - I had a question about connecting through Jeddah. It will be just me and 5 XL bags - I have asked the NEOM travel team for help in booking assistance, and they won't do that or direct me to anyone except the airport help desk. Anyone with experience transferring through that airport know if it is easy to find a porter to help with collecting and rechecking in bags? I have tried to look into companies online that offer the service, but they all seem like a scam and the prices are out of control.

Dear All,

Happy New Year to all of you at NEOM project.

I am flying out from Heathrow to NEOM this Sunday 8th and some guidance would be helpful.

- what’s the dress code at NEOM’s offices?

All the best and I will see you soon.

Dress code is pretty casual, so dress however you feel like, whether you want to wear a suit, shirt and tie (not sure if you are male/female), or jeans and polo etc.

Weather can be coldish during the day and really cold at night, usually windy as well which makes the cold weather bite more, so would bring some warm clothes but you dont need arctic clothing.
