From my personal experience there is no flexibility in the process at all. I am currently paid a lower amount as part of my company's Covid survival measures (I work in an industry that was heavily affected so at the time felt fortunate to keep my job when everyone else was losing theirs.) They have said that the offer can only based on my recent payslips and as a result the offer is essentially the same as I should be returning to in August (When my company announce their results) obviously the tax free element makes it a better deal but it definitely isn't game changing.

I'm working on a different mega project. Salaries are very generous and no cap on previous earnings. It could be a great way in. Probably around the 55k sar and then look to move a couple of years down the line for the 30% uplift.

Thank you and appreciated

FYI
Your bonus is calculated only on your base salary.

Thanks for your answer. I have been told that bonus will be 30% of your base salary. Is that correct?

Guys
1. when you talk 20%-30% on your previous salary/compensation, with this percentage they come from previous into NEOM's Basic or NEOM's total?
For example if previous company you made 100 USD, at NEOM Basic will be 120/130 USD or Total will be 120/130?
2. bonus % mentioned din the offer or just verbally or in the contract? how is your experience after a year or two? what in the end is real % you get after 1 year at duty?

1. Total
2. Verbal. Nothing is guaranteed and nothing in writing.

Bare in mind also that depending on the job grade, there is am upper band limit. So for example if you are moving from another GCC role and are near that upper limit anyway, they will not be able to go over it (as I've been told). So your actual uplift may be just a few %.

Even 15/20% is good given tax free and we al earning more out here than uk. 30% would be great of course but it all on your boss and how hard you work for them and whether they are the rewarding type. I imagine if u good they will wanna keep u and therefore incentivise with good bonuses. But don’t rely on it.
