Abu Dhabi, UAE

Ref: QP377-885

Job description / Role

Employment: Full Time

We are currently recruiting on behalf of one of the Gulf region's leading tertiary care facilities. We are looking for a well-qualified Consultant Biochemist to join their talented and diverse medical staff. Based in Abu Dhabi, the new hospital will replace an older facility, providing 700+ beds for inpatient care across multiple specialities. In addition, the facility will be able to see more than 2,500 outpatients a day. Our client is the largest public healthcare network in the UAE, providing a continuum of care to residents utilizing leading-edge technologies.

The facility has been set up to be the major trauma and burns facility for the UAE.


Abu Dhabi is easily one of the most desirable cities in the world to live and work in; it's an exciting environment for career progression. Boasting an array of 5 star hotels and dining along with some of the biggest and most exciting shopping malls in the world makes The Emirates a fantastic place to live.

As, a coastal city there are many beaches to choose from as well as a wealth of water based sporting activities, with year round sunshine it is a great place for both families and individuals to experience an outdoor lifestyle. For the sporty, there are many different pastimes, in particular, world leading golf courses and recently the largest indoor entertainment facility in the world. There is a large expatriate community from around the world, so all needs are catered for. Abu Dhabi is the capital and so houses embassies and diplomatic staff from around the world.

Education opportunities:

It must be said that some of the schools on offer (though placement is not guaranteed), provides some of the best educational opportunities in the world. 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 are even a number of International Baccalaureate schools, offering one of the most comprehensive and rewarding educational programs in the world.

Very often the high schools are well suited to feeding their students into redbrick and Ivy League universities back at home. Children can be placed, by default into a multilingual and multicultural environment, which at first may seem daunting, however it should be seen as an opportunity to form an appreciation of different cultures coming together, as well as character building.
