Default NEOM leave (annual and remote)

Hi All

Neom are now advertising positions as 30 days annual leave plus 24 days remote leave allowance

Does anyone have any direct experience with this?

ie is it 54 days in total (or is there a catch)

cheers

​​​​​It is 30 d/year of holidays and 24 d/year of remote working. So you can extend your stay when you return at home on holidays or wherever you decide to spend those resting days. But you will have to work from home the same as if you were in the office.

One thing to note is you can only take 5 consecutive remote days at a time. So you won't be able to work from home/abroad for the full 24 days at once.

Does anyone know if the annual leave accrues monthly so it can't be taken for a good few months after starting? What about probation period, is it six months?

Its calculated at the start of your employment for the rest of the year Jan - Dec, so you can take your pro rata allowance whenever.

Probation is 3 months.
