Why work in Madinah?
Situated in the Hejaz region of western Saudi Arabia, Madinah is the second holiest city in Islam. With a population of around 600,000 people, Madinah is a Muslim only city, which means non Muslims won't be able to live or work here.
The long form of the Arabic name for Madinah (Madinat Rasul Allah) means "City of the Prophet of Allah." It was to Madinah city that Muhammad fled when he was initially driven out of Mecca, and it's the place where he attracted his first followers. Madinah currently has a population of about 600,000 people and is the home of "The Prophet's Mosque."
Given that the accommodation is paid for, and that rates of pay are excellent, many Muslim expats choose to work in for a period to save money and return home having done exactly that. Being located in the Middle East also means many holiday destinations in Africa, India, Australia and South East Asia are much closer than from Europe. The official language is Arabic but English is widely understood and always used by Pulse staff in their place of work.
