Benefits of working in the Middle East
Tax-free salaries and low outgoings
These are two of the biggest attractions of working in the Middle East. All salaries are tax-free at source and with free accommodation and utilities it is possible to save a considerable amount of money.
Flights to and from the Middle East will be paid at the beginning and end of your contract and will usually include a mid-year round trip ticket. Annual leave is generous with some hospitals offering up to seven calendar weeks and you’ll receive a bonus at the end of your contract.
Doctors and senior managers are usually offered family-status contracts and benefit from an education allowance for their dependent children. Nurses and allied healthcare professionals will generally (with occasional exceptions) be offered single-status contracts.
Most hospital accommodation is provided in ‘compounds’ which are private complexes, rather like gated communities, located within the hospital grounds or nearby. Free transport is provided to and from work and for local shopping. You can expect air-conditioned, comfortable accommodation.
Most hospitals organise expeditions to interesting places and you will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of recreational activities. As you get to know your colleagues your social life will take off and you probably won’t want to leave at the end of your contract.
