The unique cultures in the Middle East can make it seem like a daunting place to job hunt, but the excellent opportunities in this resource rich region mean it shouldn't be overlooked.

Resource rich economies and expanding possibilities: Executive Search Middle East - what's stopping you?

These locations have excellent natural resources such as oil and gas, and construction is also a major industry in this region. This creates good opportunities within law, finance and wealth management and many areas are actively encouraging foreign companies such as investment banks.

Companies and individuals can take advantage of some very favourable tax rates in the Middle East. In Dubai, for example, there are no income or capital taxes apart from for oil and domestic banking, so international banking is in a great position here.

Private equity investments total around USD1billion in Dubai, with current estimates predicting this will grow. As more than 80 per cent of the investment in the region is currently offshore, increasing the need for the local business community to draw on international expertise, AP Executive finds itself in a position to add real value to clients.

Oman levies no personal income, estate or gift tax and efforts to stimulate foreign international investment have worked meaning more money is being invested here. There is, however, company tax to be paid.

For some regions, predominantly Saudi Arabia, knowledge of Sharia law is essential for legal jobs, private banking jobs and wealth management jobs.

Visas:

Relocation to the Middle East is in general straightforward, albeit bureaucratic.

For Abu Dhabi, once a permit is given, it has to be renewed every year. To obtain a permit one has to go through various health tests, including blood tests, but the costs will be funded by your company or sponsor.

In Oman the system is improving, although it is still bureaucratic and can be time consuming as you have to go through various different procedures. Applicants can apply for a work permit/visa which is issued at the request of a credible local sponsor who is responsible for the application.

To work in Qatar you will require a local sponsor. Applications for residence permits are made after arrival in Qatar through the Immigration Department. These are becoming increasingly straightforward to arrange, and are normally available within 6 weeks of arrival. Family dependents also receive residence permits.

For Dubai or Saudi Arabia you also have to secure work and then apply for a permit, which your employer will sponsor. Permits for Saudi Arabia can be problematic so advice should be sought from our experts.

Cautious optimism is the right mood for the UK, says Paul Avon

Friday, 21 June 2013

It’s probably no surprise that the private client market in the UK is generally characterised as a buyer’s market. To some extent this is correct, as businesses have encountered headwinds over the past few years. The most significant of these has been the economic uncertainty the UK has faced, particularly in relation to the European crisis. Clients have frequently lacked confidence in further investment, and this has led to fewer new opportunities.

The New World – Finding a Job in Today’s Economy

Tuesday, 08 January 2013

There’s lots of advice available on how to find a new job – but all of it was written before the daily meltdowns we’ve recently experienced. Back in 2007, people believed in the banks, Lehman Brothers was viable, RBS wasn’t owned by the government and people didn’t question bonuses being paid to high-flying executives. But now it’s a new world. If you want to differentiate yourself from other executives looking for their next leadership position, you have to ask yourself “What should I be doing differently in this new world to find my next career opportunity?”
