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

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.

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.

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

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?

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.
