Default NEOM Potential Job

Evening All,

Not been on here for a while but thought I'd ask the guru's!

I've been offered a job working on the new airport (one of many) they are building in Saudi at the NEOM Project. Is anyone else working there? What is it like, is it worth the massive payrise from the UK?

Thanks in advance,

Chris

Talking to quite a few who have been there or are there at the moment and most are looking for a gig in Riyadh rather than remote.
If the deal is good and there's a regular rotation or opportunity to escape then it's worth it. If the camps are nice then it's probably good for a year or two of banking lots.

Cheers Flares, Al Ula looks nice for a couple of days visit. Still waiting for the visa guys to contact me, I know things go slow over there so I'm not holding my breath!!

Thanks Scamp, my thoughts are do a year or two and clear all my debt and have a nice little pot in the bank. Decent deal £10k a month plus accommodation paid for as well - seems too good to be true! I think I can manage to be in a slightly dodgy place for that much

Is what it is, the money will be good because you won't spend anything.
You'll just have to be mindful of every long weekend in Dubai or Bahrain to not spend everything you've saved on beer and hookers.

Do It! +1

Remote camp life is do-able, as long as your phone pings once a month confirming that salary has been deposited.

Makes me smile
