CANDIDATES FOR SAUDI ARABIA – www.thecandidate.co.za

CANDIDATES FOR SAUDI ARABIA – www.thecandidate.co.za

 

 ImageImage

 

 

Once again we start our search for the best candidates we can source for a very large oil company in Saudi Arabia.

 

In the second half of this year the company recruiting candidates for the oil refinery will be in South Africa. They will conduct a “workshop” where they interview the candidates from South Africa in the hopes of filling at least 300 positions.

 

We are one of the largest South African recruiters for this workshop.

 

OVER THE NEXT FEW WEEKS WE WILL POST POSITIONS THAT WILL BECOME AVAILABLE IN SAUDI ARABIA.

 

Please read the requirements carefully and if you fit them please send your cv to jill@thecandidate.co.za

 Please remember the positions are for MALES only and the education requirements are very stringent.

In the meantime I have copied a blog by Mandi Lynn about living in Saudi Arabia.

 

  The Money – Most Western expats come to Saudi Arabia for one reason: Money. Landing a position here as an experienced and educated professional typically comes with perks that jobs back home don’t offer. Generous tax-free salaries, luxurious housing, paid education for your children, free tickets back home, and the minimum standard of 30 days paid vacation are all benefits offered to Western expats. The cost of living here is pretty reasonable as well, and considering that for most expats, housing and transportation are a
part of their salary packages, very little money needs to be spent to live here. We all know gasoline is cheap (cheaper than water actually), but you may be surprised to know that food, entertainment, and shopping are also affordable.

  Travel and Tourism – The Middle East has several famous tourist destinations, but the word tourism probably doesn’t spring to mind when one thinks of Saudi Arabia. It doesn’t have a booming tourist industry like other countries in the Middle East, and it’s nearly impossible to come for leisure purposes unless you already have family here to sponsor you, so being able to take advantage of the rich cultural history that the Kingdom has to offer is one of the benefits of living here. Of course there are Mecca and Medina, the country’s two holy cities, which are on the top of the list for Muslim expats, but there are several other sites worth seeing as well. Dir’iya, the original home of the Al Saud family, offers a look into what life was like when the Kingdom was first born. Mada’in Saleh, an ancient city of buildings carved into cliffs, similar to Petra, is a look back in time to the country’s pre-Islamic history. Saudi Arabia also offers spectacular scenery when you venture out into the deserts beyond Riyadh, the mountains of Abha, or the beaches along the coast of the Persian Gulf and the Red Sea.

  Food – I’ve never found a place outside of the Middle East where you can get quality Middle Eastern food. And further, there is no place outside of Saudi Arabia where you can get quality Saudi food. So if you’ve not visited, you have no idea what you’re missing! The national dish of Saudi Arabia is Kabsa, a dish of rice with meat or chicken served on a huge platter. Traditionally it is served on the floor with everyone sitting around the platter, taking rice and meat with their hands. The experience is offered not only in homes here, but also in traditional restaurants. It’s an experience that you probably won’t find anywhere else, and one you’ll miss when you leave.

  Diversity – Growing up in a small town in Midwestern America, I thought diversity meant that white kids and black kids attended my school in equal numbers. Today my world has been expanded beyond anything my small-town mind could have imagined several years ago. I have made friends with people from all corners of the globe, from countries I had probably never heard of before coming here. Riyadh, the country’s capital and my home away from home, has a mostly foreign population. People come here from all over the world to earn a living and to build lives. If you’re bringing your family and children with you to Saudi Arabia to live, this is a great place to teach your family about differing cultures and ways of life.

  Crazy stories to tell back home – Ok, I’m grasping at straws a little here. But seriously, my family and friends never tire of hearing about my adventures and experiences. And I never get tired of having them. How many times in your home town have you spotted a camel or a flock of sheep in the back of a pickup truck? Exactly. Every day is a new adventure here. New people to meet, new languages to learn, new foods to try. Even the challenges I face while living here end up becoming funny little tales to write about
