Why work in Oman?

Oman is situated on the southeast coast of the Arabian Peninsula and shares borders with the United Arab Emirates, Yemen and Saudi Arabia, with the Arabian Sea and the Gulf of Oman on its shores. The natural landscape varies dramatically from region to region. In some places, vast sandy deserts give way to immense stretches of rugged mountains, while in other areas the geography transforms suddenly from dry rocky valleys, known locally as ‘wadis’, to lush green plains watered by monsoon rains. Nature lovers can go diving, dolphin-watching, hiking or off-road driving in the desert, while a trip across the border to Dubai is easily done by bus or car. The dress code in Oman is liberal, but women should wear tops with sleeves and long skirts or trousers. Men are required to wear long trousers and shirts with sleeves.

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 Oman 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 spoken and always used by Pulse staff in their place of work.
