Default Train driver jobs in middle east

Hey guys,
I'm a qualified train driver based in London, wanted to know if there are any opportunities in the middle east preferably Qatar and what kind of pay package it is? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Stay on the underground mate. Most of those roles are either automated or done by significantly cheaper drivers from the subcontinent. Maybe look at Operatons management/advisory side of things.

I confirm - stay with TFL in the UK. Jobs like this in the ME will be filled by candidates from India and Pakistan who will work for much less than you !

Qatar’s trains are driverless, so there isn’t much call for train drivers...

I second that. Also if you're qualified in safety regs etc. Mate of mine was interviewed only the other week. A lot of work in Saudi.

The Doha Metro is fully automated. Lusail Tram and Education City Tram use drivers, but i'd be surprised if you'll get close to your TfL salary. No heavy rail in Qatar, but it worth investigating in UAE/Saudi. I'd focus on management/advisory roles as SandyMcSand suggested.
