Why work in Kuwait?

Located on the north-western tip of the Arabian Gulf, oil-rich Kuwait boasts excellent shopping, as you might expect, and lots more besides. Kuwait inhabitants enjoy water sports, boating, diving, snorkelling and family friendly beaches with shallow waters. To escape the heat they head to the Olympic-sized ice-skating rink. Kuwait has one of the most thriving arts scenes in the Gulf. Kuwaitis are pioneers of contemporary Khaleeji music and together with Bahrain, it gave birth to the musical genre.

Working in the Middle East has many advantages, allowing you to immerse yourself in a new culture, enjoy glorious sunshine and perhaps even learn a new language, all while furthering your career. Given that the accommodation is paid for and that rates of pay are excellent, many expats choose to work in Kuwait 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 a short distance away so you can see the world while working abroad. 

The official language is Arabic, but English is widely understood and always used by Pulse staff in their place of work. Although Kuwait is a traditional Muslim nation, western women are not required to wear abayas. However, wearing shorts, tight-fitting clothes or showing too much skin is likely to attract unwanted attention. Men can dress as they please, but again wearing shorts or sleeveless vests is likely to be seen as disrespectful in some areas.
