Is someone going to call my most recent employer and request a remuneration report? Any insight as to what other data is pursued other than job title and start/finish dates?

Thanks!
hi

for the last point based on my experience
The 3rd party background check will ask if it is ok to contact your current employer or not
ask for the contact details of the previous manager
they are checking the accuracy of your work experience and as well contacting your school / uni regarding the degree.

i don’t have any info about the 3 other points

have you ever received it? If yes what % it was. I understood as well that the bonus is based on the performance. Is there performance reviews such as mid year and EOY reviews? Do we have a set of objectives to meet or is it based on the general performance?
is the % variable in other word can you have like 10% or 30% or it’s 0% or 30%.

Thank you
Hello,
Performance reviews are pretty straightforward. At the beginning of the year (or when you arrive) you and your manager will sit down and define your goals - there are usually between 5-9. They are all measurable and when you set them up, you will define what constitutes meeting your goals (3), exceeding your goals (4), or doing an exceptional job (5). You'll also define the levels for 1 and 2. At the end of the year, you and your manager will review your performance, total up how you did and agree on that value. This is set up so that everyone's performance lands on a bell curve with the majority of employees getting a 3.
During a full year, there is a mid-year review where you see how you're doing as you work towards your goals. It also affords you a chance to change or update your goals - with your manager's approval - if there has been a change to the business.
During Q1, the board sets up a bonus pool based on company performance (revenue, project milestones achieved, etc) and assigns percentages to the value of each evaluation. A 1 gets you a performance improvement plan and no bonus. 2 is a little something but not much. 3-5 get more. The percentages last year were in the 20's, 30's, and 40's for 3, 4 and 5 respectively. But as I say, they change year to year based on company performance.

2. What bump might be possible if Director level rather than Senior Manager? An extra 20K/mo SAR? This was something discussed and is sort of an open issue. The position reports into a Exec. Director whether it be Senior Manager or Director level to start. Again, depends on your role and industry. It may also depend on how what the department budgeted for your role.
3. How common is it to get a promotion once working at NEOM? Once you've been in your role for at least a year, if you've scored a 4 or a 5 on your evaluation, you can be considered for a promotion. If you got a 3 and your position's responsibility has expanded significantly, you can also be considered. That's up to the ED. You aren't guaranteed a promotion, but on the whole, most managers try to get their people promoted. Your salary will be evaluated periodically regardless of whether or not you are promoted. Do keep in mind that when you salary is adjusted, whether through promotion or raise, this will be on your basic salary. Bonuses are also on basic salary.
4. I've had varying remuneration over the past six months of my latest employment which I finished a few months back (varying for a variety of reasons I won't bore you with). I uploaded the more favourable evidence. Anyone know if they discuss/validate remuneration with past employers as part of the 3rd party background check? Is someone going to call my most recent employer and request a remuneration report? Any insight as to what other data is pursued other than job title and start/finish dates? The background check validates the positions you listed on your CV, your professional credentials, and your education. Not comp. The only compensation they verify is your last position.

Thanks!

This might seem like a dumb question - - but is the annual bonus based on your monthly pay or the annual one ( not the housing transport etc) but say, for easy of maths, your basic pay was 50K/ month and you got a 20% bonus - is that 20% of 50K = 10K bonus - - or 20% of 50K*12 (yearly total) - 120K bonus.?

Not a dumb question at all. It is based on annual basic pay.

Yes. It seems to be a good program.
If you start before 30-Sep, you will qualify for the bonus (pro-rated).

I am applying for various roles advertised at Neom Careers, but I am not receiving any replies, and it appears as if my CV is ending up in the bin. I have also contacted a few recruiters on LinkedIn, but they are not responding at all.

Can anyone here explain how they got their jobs? Are there any specialist recruitment agencies you are working with or would recommend to help put my CV in front of hiring managers? I have 16+ years of experience in the Data Analytics and Architecture space in the UK market.

Ok basically they will find you and not the other way around. Do you need to put something on your profile to say you are looking for work in Saudi Arabia ?

I didn’t put anything specific on my profile and was found by one of the Directors. Not sure which roles you are interested in, but I believe that in my case, they found me because the companies I used to work for are big and internationally recognised and I’ve spent majority of my career at the site.

My husband has been headhunted regularly for jobs at NEOM, he certainly doesn’t have the ME as somewhere he wants to work on his profile. I think if you have skills they need they’ll approach you, but opening your profile up to include the ME would probably help.

Good luck.

I've replied in one of your other postings of this question. I'll let you search through all the threads you asked on to find it.
