There are some great websites with job listings which I will reveal below. And if you are wondering what salaries you can earn in Qatar, I will reveal that too. Keep reading!
Of course Qatar offers great opportunities, not charging any income tax and needing lots of professionals at many different levels to keep the country growing at such an amazing rate.
To find yourself such a job, you will have to take action yourself. I can not find the job for you. What I can do is guide you with a few steps, that are going to make the process a whole lot easier! I have given those steps in my Youtube video titled Find Jobs in Qatar. This article is written to supplement that video, providing all the links to other websites, and information in easy to read text format.
Many workers in Qatar actually found their job through an agency in their home country. I mention a few of those in my Youtube video. Here is a list of agencies in each country, to help you find that Job in Qatar.
Phillipines – C B K Agency
Bangladesh – Musar Agency
Kenya – Maimouna Agency
Uganda – West Coast Agency
I am doing my best to obtain more contact details for these agencies, when available, I will add them to this list.
If you would like to browse online for jobs available in Qatar, I recommend the following websites:
If you are looking for a management or higher position job in Qatar, many of those are fulfilled through contacts / networking and headhunting. I highly recommend expanding gaining connections with people already working in these positions, using websites such as linkedin.com and facebook.com In Qatar it can make a huge difference who you know, so networking is probably essential. Many friends and neighbours I’ve talked to in management positions where recruited by headhunting, rather than them applying for the job themselves!
