Default Positions in Food/Health and Safety

Hi there

I'm a graduate environmental health officer with dreams of getting out of the cold here in the UK and Dubai seems like a nice place to say the least.

Does anyone out there have any info on the opprotunities open to someone with Food Safety / Health and Safety / Environmental Management qualifications?

I've searched the internet for job vacancies but have drawn a complete blank.

I'm married with children. Would this cause any problems?

Any help gratefully received.
Merry Xmas
Jason

Expecting your valuable guidelines on this front.

It really depends on what you want to do. There are currently plenty of jobs in Local Govt. Environmental Health (you'd need to retrain though), especially in London and the larger cities, where your native language will make you very employable.

Check out www.cieh.org for more info. on a career in Env. Health.

I hope this helps. Please reply if you'd like more info.

It's all very well searching through job adverts etc. and contacting local authorities but you should check first if you have any chance of being able to get a working visa.

Without a working visa, you will be wasting your time finding employment.

Jason,


Many thanx for the really valuable info. Regardless of my qualification and experience, I'm ready to take any position which offers food and housing. I hope you could help me with this fact in mind. I'm planning my trip around March'04.

Regards
Vineeth.

I don't know what you have been told, nor what you expect but I don't believe there are expat type positions available with UK local authorities.

My earlier advice still stands that you should check if you have the right to live and work in the UK first.

Hi jason,

Sorry to say but I dont know about jobs like that in the UAE, as most of the Health & Safety is done by the Municipality. You can possibly check the Dubai Municipality jobs here. Your marital status shouldnt cause much of a problem, but your type of jobs are not that available around and your best bet is at the Municipality. You should check the two links in my signature, as it has helped alot of people.

Philip

Many thanks for your comments and advice. I'm pretty surprised at the lack of jobs in my area of work considering the amount of hotels and restaurants etc. in Dubai. I've seen a few food hygiene jobs advertised in UK env. health journals in the past and i'm sure that opportunities exist - I guess I'll just have to look harder!

Thanks again. All the best.
Jason
