Need advice! I have a good employment offer with a Saudi agency but the contract is very vague. I have to constantly get pieces of information from the recruiter and didn't even have an interview. I have a good position in Europe right now and I am not sure I should go for this or not. I want to put my foot in the VIP/corporate aviation and this looks like it could be a good chance.
I am just not sure whether this way of hiring is SOP in VIP operations in Saudi... or if they usually attract candidates by offering a "permanent contract" and then firing them after probation so they always have "fresh meat". Would appreciate any input!
Jackx123, the person applied for a cabin crew position, in this case they probably will operate with a multiple entry visa and not an igama. So a 6 month contract is a possibility and the Saudi labor law is irrelevant.
SilverwingsB, if u have a good position in Europe, keep it.
I have also just been offered a position with this company! What do you think about it? I don't want to turn it down if it is a legit employment offer and can give me a good experience of the cabin crew role.
I never read what benefit you thought there would be in leaving your current job for this one in Saudi, other than getting into corporate. This doesn't seem like a very strong argument to support moving. I don't think it will help much when you start looking in Europe for a F/A position.
And Saudi is a difficult place to live for anyone, and harder for a woman (you are a woman, right?).
Jobs in that part of the world are easy to lose, regardless of what your contract says, so I wouldn't put much weight on a contract.
Finally, for any job as a F/A, I would expect an interview with the principal passenger (The owner). If you don't see this, there is something wrong.
So in summery, I'd vote to stay away unless you are unemployed and are looking for an adventure.
