Default NEOM interview dress code

Hi,
I applied for a NEOM position through their website, and I recieved a Teams interview request.
What is the dress code for the interview?
Thanks,

Hi Bill.0,

Dress code shouldn't be something to worry about specially on Teams. Its business casual.

Cheers

I just asked to check if they like it to be more formal with a tie

No worries Bill.0. Not sure about others experiences, you can wear upto you. I just had a plain white shirt, no tie. Cheers

I interviewed with a tie on and a sport coat (at 5:00 AM in the morning ). They did ask me to have my camera on so keep that in mind with your background.

It’s business casual (like someone else said) and I think everyone on the call was just wearing a collared dress shirt.

Just be patient with the process. I interviewed at the beginning of February and arrive in NEOM this week. Of course Ramadan was in the middle of it so I’m sure that slowed the process down.

Good luck with your interview.

I just wore my Worley PPE shirt after a 12 hour shift in the Northern Territory. Thankfully, the interview was really relaxed.

Has anyone been invited to interview in Saudi Arabia in person rather than via Microsoft Teams?

I'm not sure mate. I'm finally at NEOM now, and I haven't heard anyone mentioned an interview in Saudi.

My boss mentioned he wanted a face to face interview in Saudi for a very senior position he was hiring for. So it is possible.

in some cases people will be invited for interview/due diligence visit. This should all be covered by the company I believe. Depending on the level, chino and shirt would be sufficient, or you could wear a suit depending who you're meeting with. Either way I don't think it will be that important, they're likely inviting you to judge suitability and fit for the position to save any surprises.
