Default Ok the dust has settled ..

so we are actively looking for new employment we have decided to pay the rent for the next 6 months (hopefully 2 cheques) , school fees are paid til the end of June, visa's run out in April. If you have used good recruitment agencies in the past would you be so kind as to share them with us. Thanks for all the PM's of support. CV is being updated as we speak.

Good luck and I hope something better turns up soon.

It's great that you have some time at least. Definitely negotiate 2 cheques with your landlord and explain the circumstances - am sure he will agree.

Oilandgascareers.com

Rigzone.com

These are ok. For marine and offshore forget any local recruitment agencies.

Go for the ones above and search, there are tonnes for marine worldwide.

Not sure about Dubai, but maybe far east?

Are you strictly sticking to UAE or would you consider Singapore/Korea?

The rig/ship building industry is absolutely booming down there
