Hi

Which documents they requested? In my interview I was told I would need to verify employment history and salary information. Is there anything else they check or require?

I work in Qatar and was contacted by a recruiter from Dubai early December 2021 about a potential position , I then had two interviews back to back and heard nothing for five weeks , usual for middle east .
I was offered the position early January 22 and the process began. The background check , Hireright , make sure and give them more information than they need as they don't go looking for it , took them about two / three weeks to complete , I then got call from onboarder at Neom to hand in my notice as I was on 30 days .
I was put in touch with a visa company in London and started the education paperwork attestation, that took weeks , by then I had used my annual leave in my notice period and headed back to Scotland , once the paperwork was attested I had to fly from Glasgow to London for a medical , the visa company arranged the medical for me . I also had to get a police certificate online and send the original to the visa company .
So I should get my visa issued late this week or next , then off to Neom , the accommodation people have been in touch and I know where I am staying , and the Neom onboarder has been very good her name is <snip> . Hopefully I will be in Neom in next couple of weeks .
If I can help anyone with any questions about my experience with the visa process , shout out , cheers
Do you know what Hireright checks?

Hello all

So I have did the interviews, and passed, now i am waiting for the HR to contact me. It has been 2 weeks without any contact, but the hiring manager messaged me twice saying the process is going and they really want me.

During my interview I was told they will run a background check on my work history and my previous salary. Is there anything else they will check?

For the diploma attestation I saw some posts it needs to be done on the Saudi Embassy?

Thanks a lot in advance

Hey everyone,

My name is Filip and I got an offer to move to Neom and work for Nesma United Industries. They have offered me accommodation or an accommodation allowance. I have tried to check the prices for the 1 bedroom cabins but I'm having a hard time finding anything online.

Are there any available? Anyone else works for Nesma that is willing to share some experiences about the company?

I have lived in Qatar and Dubai previously, so more or less I know what to expect lifestyle wise and I have also made peace that I will be living in an area that is under development and there aren't a lot of exciting things around.

Thank you

hey everyone,
Has anyone offered position to move to NEOM under Jones Engineering SMP contract? I have been offered a manager level role but unfortunately with very low salary package. I don't feel that is a right package for a manager level role. I have spent 10 years working in Saudi Arabia and well aware of market and salary packages. The offered package value is the same as when I left Saudi in 2016 (almost 7 years ago). This doesn't make sense to me at all. When I tried negotiating package, they remove me from the shortlist. Anyone working under Jones Engineering contract and able to negotiate?

How much did they offer you? I think all the managerial roles have the same salaries

SAR. 24K inclusive for 48hrs a week contract
Food & Accomo by client at site
Transport by client at site

To be honest, 24K is a junior level salary, I have over 17+ years of experience

You are totally correct. 24K is not a good salary for 17 years of experience.

That should be the correct figure. When I negotiated the package they (Jones Engineering) have taken me away from the shortlist, though they have offered me position. Anyway, there is no way for me to accept a SAR. 24K package.

Have you considered applying to Neom Directly?
