Ask Louise

I am a 34 year old South African and a Horticulturist by profession. For a while now I have wanted to resign and go work abroad. I love the UAE and always travel there. Where do you start? My CV is done and I would like to post it on websites, although I do not want to go into horticulture.

First of all, I would urge you to try and make contact with any colleagues that work or have worked in the UAE to try and get some first hand introductions and an idea as to what field you would like to move into. I would then encourage you to contact some of the business councils (we have both South African & European ones in our directory) for any introductions they may have.

From South Africa, look on-line for jobs and by email, contact some of the major recruitment consultants in the region such as, Michael Page, Kershaw Leonard, and BAC Executive Recruitment.

Finally, the best thing you can do if you have time is try and take a trip here to meet personally with the recruitment consultants. Please bear in mind the summer holidays, including Ramadan, will soon be upon us in July so business will slow down then.
