Wife got a job offer

By FromAsia

Long story short, wife got a job offer from Qatar:

Is this good enough for average living in Doha for a couple and a toddler?

How hard is it to find a job in qatar (in an MBA with vast experience in commercial/not for profit sectors?) I plan on getting a job too.

How expensive is a nanny or fmonring to evening day care?

Can living costs be covered and will we be able to save anything?

Basics include: 

Salary: QR11400 per month

Housing allowance: QR 5500 per month

Transport allowance: QR 455 per month

Full medical/and tuition fees for two children as well as bonuses.

I think if you have children you will definitely struggle with that amount. However if its just you as a couple and you plan on getting a job too then ( depending in lifestyle) you should be ok.

Yes, you may be able to save something.

You should be able to get a two-bedroom unfurnished apartment within QR.5000. Your monthly household expenses will be around QR.2500. Add another QR.1000 for miscellaneous expenses. The rest should be in your pocket.

You will be able to find maid servants for daytime work but they are going to be costly. As for you finding a job in Qatar, try your luck out. The competition is tough.
