Thanks Liyamu. The site looks good.
Have you any general advice on living and working in the UAE. Whats your opinion of the place. I know its not what a lot of people expect and that I suppose a lot of people are disappointed. However I think I have a much more realistic view of what to expect.

I'm not the best person to ask about the standard of living in Dubai because i've never actually lived there, just been there a few times and i'll be in the same situation as you in the future, however this list threads/blogs/websites below has helped me, I find forums/blogs to be far more informative than websites because you get the information straight from people living there:

http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/9cfaf/1c5710/ (this is more tourist orientated but still a great read)

http://britishexpats.com/forum/showthread.php?t=436041

http://beerandbloating.blogspot.com/ (i think the owner of that blog is on this website)

http://www.expatwoman.com/vbulletin/...php?forumid=19 (don't be put off by the title of the website, its quite informative if you can get past the hordes of maid related threads)

There's a lot more threads in this forum too.
