We are looking for well trained and experienced Senior Consultant Obstetrics & Gynaecology. Our client is based in 2 of the 7 emirates in the United Arab Emirates in both Dubai and neighbouring Sharjah including one of the largest and longest running facilities in the country. The U.A.E has been particularly important in the growth and sustenance of the Healthcare market in the Gulf nations enjoying a comfortable increase in the size of the healthcare market by about 12% by the end of 2015, with massive projects and facilities being constructed across the country in the hope that the other G.C.C nations such as Oman, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait follow suit in keeping their communities healthy. Our client works in accordance with its values.
* Salary starts at around 60,000 AED per month (£10,000) plus benefits
* Free medical insurance
* Free malpractice insurance
* Educational allowance ( usually translating up to 35-50,000 dhs per semester)
* 30 days annual leave
* 10 public holidays
* 5 days continued education leave
* Senior consultants and management positions - 6 days administrative leave
* 8-10 gratuity per annum upon severance (end of service bonus)
Sharjah is very much like Dubai, there are a few notable cultural differences however that must be noted for those that choose to live there. Sharjah although less than 10 miles from Dubai operates under a slightly more conservative interpretation of Sharia. For perspective, this translates to a ban on alcohol consumption within Sharjah city limits and the wearing of more conservative clothes in public spaces. Taking these considerations into account might be made easier by the fact that in Sharjah rental expenditure is substantially lower than that of the other Emirates.
Whether living in Dubai or Sharjah, the cities are so closely linked by public transport, monorail taxi services that you might forget which city you are living in.
This client offers up educational support for dependent children between the ages of 8-16, usually this comes in the form of an allowance to pay for said child's placement in school. One of the most interesting things about the schooling pool in the U.A.E is that there a number of different curriculums on over from a number of different schools. There are British curriculum schools, American curriculum schools and there is even a number of International Baccalaureate schools, offering one of the most comprehensive and rewarding educational programmes in the world. Very often the high schools are well suited to feeding their students into redbrick and Ivy League universities back at home. Some of the less tangible benefits would be the multilingual and multicultural that children are placed into by default, character building to the say the least.
Skills and Qualifications
* CCST ( certificate of completion of specialist training)
* American Board Registration
* CIS (French Board)
* Australian or NZ fellowship
3 to 4 years of experience after obtaining these qualifications would be preferable but not essential depending on expectations of the client and the position being applied for. Arabic speaking is not expected but is always well received, no matter your aptitude.
