Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Employers who advertise their vacancies on GulfTalent.com are typically international firms operating in the Middle East and Gulf area, major regional groups or recruitment agencies recruiting on behalf of their clients.

The vacancies advertised on our website come from a wide range of industries and job categories. Whatever your field of expertise, if you have at least 1-2 years experience, we would encourage you to register and complete your CV, and sooner or later you are likely to find job opportunities matching your interests.

Generally, you must have some kind of university education and reasonable command of English. Work experience in your field of interest is often required. While some positions require specific nationalities (for instance, due to visa/work permit restrictions), in most cases professional experience in the field you apply for is the most important factor. However, you should either already reside in the Gulf countries or be able to relocate.

Your details are stored on our database and you will periodically receive updates on jobs in your field of interest. When you apply for a specific position, the employer/recruiter advertising the vacancy will receive your application instantly. They will then have a chance to review your CV and may decide to contact you by telephone or email, or to invite you for an interview.

After you apply for a position, employers may take anywhere from a few days to several weeks to get in touch with you. In some cases, if your application is not short-listed by the employer/recruiter, or if the position is already filled, you may not be contacted at all. Do not be disappointed; do keep reviewing the jobs that come up and if you come across another position that you believe you are qualified for, do apply.

We can not accept CV's attached with email as this will place you outside our candidate database and destroy your chances of being considered for any jobs. To apply, you must register on our website and submit your resume either by completing the online CV tool (recommended) or uploading your CV as a separate file on your account. If you submit your CV as a separate file, we would still encourage you to complete your online CV in full, as it will increase your chances of being matched to a specific position.
