Offer by QP

By AusLawyer

Hi, I am looking at an offer from QP. Salary is 45,000QR per month and 10,000QR per month for accommodation plus also car allowance, etc.

Can u tell me if this is enough to have a very high standard of living and if 10,000 per month is enough for a quality house - maybe with a pool??? There are just my wife and myself.

Also, any comments on QP?

Thanks very much

You may be on a special contract although the housing tells me otherwise. The bonus is a new one on me if you are on an indefinite contract unless it's the Western Inducement Allowance (WIA).

I think you will find the 45 days are inclusive of public holidays which is standard for Senior Staff.

When signing with Q-companies:

They will refer in your contract to items that are "per policy".

Be careful of those items because they can change "policy" at whim.

45,000 per month should easily afford you a very lavish lifestyle i would think. 10,000 a month for housing probably won't get you the pool that you desire, housing is insanely expensive in this country.

If you must then i would put a bit of your own salary into securing the type of residence you really want, like novita77 said i would think 15000QR would get you a very nice place.

you would still have plenty of cash left over to "live it up" esp if they are also giving you a car allowance like you stated in your post.

QP is a well respected company that hires many foreigners. As every job i highly recommend you get everything in writing and signed by both parties.

Thanks for the input guys - I do not know what the band is. Sounds like the income is good as there is a bonus on top of the 45k per month. BUt also sounds like I need more money for the house. Also they offer 9 weeks annual leave. IS this standard and would it include public holidays?

House with a pool for 10000QR in Doha? Yeah right, more likely a serviced one bedroom flat with a condominial pool! Good enough?
