Keep us informed, please :)
Have you already decided where are you going to live in Bahrain?

Well, going to be in Juffair initially. Where my OH is currently living. In a perfect world, I'll get a job in Seef and we'll aim to find somewhere new there. But, until I find a job, think we're going to stay in Juffair.

Don't want to move, get locked into a contract, then end up getting a job in Riffa or something!

Good plan. I hope you can find a job in Seef. Juffair is a fantastic place! :)

Thanks Anna :)

I like Juffair a lot. Have spent a little time in Adliya too and Seef.

Cool, Juffair is a really great choice. It is very nice place for living.
It is interesting that Juffair is built on a massive land reclamation scheme which has extended Bahrain's coastline by two kilometers to the east. So this place was reclaimed from the sea. :)
This is the place of frenetic building activity, with new apartment buildings and hotels constructed every year. Mostly foreigners or upwardly mobile young Bahrainis live there. So you definitely will not be bored there.

Hello

Are you still looking for a Job in Bahrain? or have you got one already



Hi everyone,

Subject of the post pretty much sums up my post. I'm currently trying to look for a new job in Bahrain, from London. It's been about a month and my usual tactics aren't working.

I'm a web designer cum email marketing specialist. 8 years of experience working for all sorts in London. So I've been searching for and contacting a bunch of marketing/ad/creative agencies. Registered myself with as many recruitment agencies and job sites as I can find. But haven't got any bite backs.

Has anyone got any hints or tips they could share? They'd really be appreciated!

Thanks :)
Mustafa

Cleo - I will be in Bahrain soon. Next week in fact! I'll be moving over then :) Looking forward to it.

Still looking for a job, but hoping to find something when I get there.
