Is that correct? Please let me know if I'm wrong.
It would 60k euros * 1.3 = 78k euros per year.

So 6.5k euros a months unfortunately not 18.4K.

I've heard the food is ok in Neom. For us, not so much. I've developed quite the kitchen skills with an air fryer.

I imagine they're hiring you as an accountant?

Yes. It was the percentage increase on top of current gross salary for us.

Yes, the food is pretty good considering our location. Some great seafood too. I'm happy with it. The dessert section is deadly, in all the best ways.

hey - was the % added monthly or yearly.

eg let’s say I am on 100k gbp, I thought they would offer me 130k gbp per year translated into sar. So 650k SAR annually or 55k SAR per month.

or is it my current uk gross salary 100 + 30 = 130 k SAR per month.

I reckon its the first one right but if not - not complaining

Sorry, that was actually rude of me.
It was a fair question to ask considering how everything is a bit different in Neom.

I didn’t take it that way but that makes me feel better hehe - again definitely didnt feel You were rude at all from my side and you’re only helping by sharing on here.

like everyone else, it’s really helpful hearing views from those on-site as it makes that leap of faith a little bit easier.

Im been waiting a couple of weeks to schedule in my next interview ; the teams appears to be really busy on the ground. I’m confirmed as through to next stage but literally the setting up takes forever so should I worry about the delay.

It’s natural given the start up nature alongside continues growth / new projects demanding time. Hard to balance it all I imagine.

Yes that third video, 20-45 is NC2.
From 00.50-2.39 is NC1. The video doesn't show everything in NC1 like the school, gyms, recreation centres, the big dining tent, family 2-bed accommodation etc. But it's all quite nice The third video is still very nice and informative.
