Working in Dubai

Dubai is an emirate in the United Arab Emirates located on the southeast coast of the Persian Gulf and is one of the seven emirates that make up the country. It has the largest population in the UAE and the second-largest land territory after the capital, Abu Dhabi. English is the standard language within the business community, and the city has a active scene with very few social barriers, making it easy for expatriates to fit in.

Dubai has emerged as a multicultural metropolis that has grown steadily to become a global city and a business and cultural hub of the Middle East and the Persian Gulf region. Dubai has recently begun attracting world attention through its many innovative large construction projects and sporting events. The city has also become symbolic for its skyscrapers and high-rise buildings, in particular the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa, and other large-scale development projects including man-made islands, hotels and some of the largest shopping malls in the region and the world.

In addition to the many extracurricular and leisurely things to do in this emirate, Dubai also offers several occupational benefits for those who work here.

Dubai is a land of opportunity – it is one of the most comfortable places in the Gulf region since the regime decided to move away from oil and establish economic diversification in the emirate. Dubai’s economy has grown rapidly in the past 30 years and will continue to grow in the upcoming decades. This means that there are many opportunities to find well-paying employment opportunities in Dubai for anyone looking to enjoy a tax-free lifestyle.

Many are drawn to the opportunity to work in Dubai simply because it provides the advantage of a new lifestyle and a chance to work on projects not available anywhere else in the world. Experience abroad gives employees crucial transferable skills to fast track your career development. With the increasing presence of international companies, opportunities are lucrative and plentiful.

This year in our office we’ve decided to make a few New Year’s resolutions in order to help us be more efficient in better serving you!

One of our resolutions is to implement more green living methods, such as reducing paper waste. Not only will we be benefiting the environment but it will also assist us in reducing clutter and increasing organization.

Another resolution of ours is to speed up productivity between hospital and candidate communication. One way you as a candidate can help us do this is by having the following documents ready when you apply:

Your complete CV which includes the following:

  • Personal Information- Full name, Date of Birth, Nationality, Contact Information, Etc.
  • Educational Details- University Name, Date Graduated, Degree, Etc.
  • Experience Details- Date Hired (from-to), Position Title, Company Name

You don’t necessarily need all these documents to apply but it’s helpful for the institutions to have when considering your application. Typically, the hospitals will ask for them soon after receiving your CV and some hospitals require the documents along with the CV so let’s work together to place you in a position that best suits you and your family’s needs as swiftly as possible!

Ramadan Kareem from SA INTERNATIONAL

Ramadan Kareem from SA INTERNATIONAL

Ramadan Kareem!

Month of Ramadan fast facts:

Ramadan is the month the Qur’an was revealed

Ramadan follows the lunar cycle and is the 9th month in the Islamic calendar

Most Muslims observe Ramadan by fasting from sunrise to sunset with no food or water.

Fasting is one of the Five Pillars of Islam

In accordance to the tradition of the Prophet Muhammad, most Muslims break their fast with a date.

Fasting is not just about withholding from food and water. It is much more. It is a time of heightened spirituality and a time of self-reflection. Many Muslims use Ramadan to reconnect with Islam by reading the Qur’an in 1/30th segments each day until it is completed. Charity, another pillar of Islam, is also greatly tied into the spirit of Ramadan. The physical hunger felt from withholding food serves its purpose by facilitating an environment for empathy.

Here at SA International, we have great empathy for all coworkers who are fasting. We show our respect by not eating or drinking in front of those fasting.
