If that's for FO, then the captain deal might be interesting, but think I'd want positioning to be within the 21, and in business class.

I guess that you'd get the same travel home arrangement each month that Saudia expats have or something similar. It's ACM which is effectively standby economy but jumpseats are available at the operating Captain's discretion. I doubt that it'll be better than that.

They're not going to get many applications on an unsecured application web page.

I believe the general principle is that if you are ordinarily domiciled in Ireland or UK (i.e. your primary home is in one of those countries) and you spend more than a certain number of days (90 days wrt UK tax rules) residing in the country of your primary home, then you're liable to pay income tax on your earnings (be they earned in the country or overseas).... there's a bit more to it than that, but that's the gist of it.

So, on this contract, if you're commuting back & forth to Ireland / UK one would suspect that you're likely to get clobbered by some income tax... which would therein make it a somewhat questionable contract to begin with, wherein (i.e. after tax) your net take-home would be in the region of $8,500 USD.

OKC: agreed in general, just short of the home base, however. Hope you don't mind pointing out the the extra yard. https://www.revenue.ie/en/tax-profes...udi-arabia.pdf Article 15 (3).

Given the amount of cash involved, it'd be counter-productive to even voice an opinion here. Each must go see a person who understands the implications within the legal framework home.

Just an observation then: Identical wording elsewhere in EU means that the taxes are done in KSA (even if zero) and the passport state only gets the difference up to their rates ONLY from work exercised OUTSIDE KSA territory. What is done inside the Kingdom is not claimable to them. But for instance per-diems from international routes would be.
