Healthcare and Nursing Jobs in Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the UAE

Why do people work in the Middle East?

Some people go for the tax-free salary. Many go for the travel. Many are simply seeking a change. Others go for the adventure. Some stay for years; a good number return repeatedly.

Day-to-day life is less hectic than in the West. You don’t have the daily aggravations: the long commute to work; the energy spent on maintaining your dwelling; the scramble to buy stuff you don’t need. You have time to develop other parts of your life, be they athletic, artistic, or spiritual. The repeaters tell us you have more fun in the Middle East. Finally, those of us who have lived in the Arabian Peninsula, feel that it has been a truly enlightening experience.

Jobs In The Middle East

About The Middle East

Saudi Arabia

Saudi Arabia offers history, culture, modern amenities, and abundant opportunities for exploration. From camping under starry desert skies, to hiking in the mountains along the west coast, to diving the spectacular coral reefs and wrecks of the Red Sea, to exploring fascinating ruins and historical sites, to shopping in the affluence of Riyadh or Jeddah, you will find something in the Kingdom to make it a memorable adventure for you.

United Arab Emirates

From the glittering, ultra-modern coastal cities of Abu Dhabi and Dubai, across the desert sands to the oasis city of Al Ain, nestled beneath Hafeet Mountain, along the border with Oman, the United Arab Emirates offers you city style, seaside fun, and outdoor adventure in a relaxed, laid back setting.


Small in size, big in outlook. This country, about the size of Connecticut, offers a relaxed atmosphere, access to amenities like movies and symphony performances, and engages the world through its Al Jazeera network and hosting major sporting events like the 2006 Asian Games and the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
