Default Work in Saudi or Gulf Region

First time posting on this forum. My wife is working in Saudi for Aramco and I am trying to secure some sort of work over there also. My experience is mainly in Logistics & Materials Control in the Oil & Gas industry. Wondering if anyone on here knows if agencies or companies to get in touch either in Saudi or the Gulf region in general. Any advice or info would be very much appreciated.

No information I can offer unfortunately - but perhaps it might be better posting this under the 'Job Discussions' section? Could your Doris not get you a job at Aramco?

Cheers for the reply. Will move this thread to ME jobs forum. I do not currently have a degree and I know that is going to be the major problem. I have a pal that worked out in Saudi without a degree and said that it is possible with some of the companies as a contractor.

No worries. Yes, the big companies will nearly always request a degree, and people like Aramco / Sabic won't consider you without one. in KSA it's more and more common for job ads to specify a degree even for the most routine of jobs. But like you say, it is possible to get work if you have the experience and maybe professional qualifications CIPS/CILT type of thing. Best of luck.
