Default NEOM JOB DETAILS

It would be super helpful if someone can breakdown the full package/ offer they received from NEOM.

- Salary: is it only your current salary + 30% no matter what? ( There is no budget?)

- relocation allowance (75k SAR?)

- How many vacation days?

- what is the flight allowance?

- Is there a retention bonus?

- How many interviews before you were offered the position?


I've been following along for awhile and i appreciate everyone who contributes!

- relocation allowance (75k SAR?) Correct

- How many vacation days? 30 + 2 x Eids + Saudi National Day, so maybe around 38-41?

- what is the flight allowance? Its 1 flight for you and family once per year. Rates are determined by fare average. Apart from the initial flight out and the final exit flight, which are booked and paid for by NEOM, the rest are reimbursed by expenses. I think you also get an allowance for 1 return domesfic flight per month

- Is there a retention bonus? 2-3% annually

- How many interviews before you were offered the position? 2 - one formal, one informal

I've been following along for awhile and i appreciate everyone who contributes!
See responses in green above, I hope this helps!

Is there really no budget for roles within NEOM? just 30% more than your current role?

I've never heard of anyone having to provide paystubs to a prospective employer.

I am extremely under paid in my current role but i work from home and get to spend time with my family. i don't think a 30% increase from my current salary is worth the move the middle of the desert : /

Yes, you need to provide (at the very least) 3 months of payslips. If this is not possible, then they will ask for your current employment contract which should state your current salary. They will then do the calculations based on this.
From my recent experience, there is little to no room for negotiation. Its a pretty closed process to be honest.

Can anyone highlight some interview questions they were asked?

My understanding is that there is one formal & one informal? Can anyone explain the difference?

There was no specific formal and/or informal interview. Both were pretty relaxed and both combined technical/experience type questions and some personal light hearted chat.

I met with the Exec Director of my team first for about an hour, then the second interview 2 days later was with my direct senior manager for close to 45 mins.

What is your occupation/industry that you are looking to get into a NEOM?

The 30% increase is an interesting one, I too have been considering the move. I left ft employment a few years ago, to see if I could get my own SME property /construction related off the ground in the UK, I paid very little salary to myself in that time, trying to get it moving. Anyway long story short would they look at payslip from 5 yrs ago? How can you overcome a situation like this?

Hi to all, please can you advise, when you say 30% increase of salary is that of your total take home including allowances (existing total package plus 30%) or 30% just on your current basic salary plus existing allowances if your looking to join from the UAE?

1) having read through most posts here, it is based on *most* of your total package
2) uplift is 20%-25% (rare exceptions of 30% have been mentioned but not the norm, so look for 25%)
