It’s a Nurses Life! Living and Working in Saudi Arabia

Saudi Arabia

Saudi Arabia

I am currently recruiting nurses from Ireland, UK and the EU for A&E and Paediatric roles in some of the finest hospital this world has ever seen, in Saudi Arabia. People seem to be reluctant to take on a new challenge like this, but from the research I have carried out, I have found that Saudi Arabia offers wonderful opportunities to build nursing careers and it also offers an exceptional way of life!
Saudi Arabia is the largest state in Western Asia. It has an estimated population of 27 million, of which 9 million are registered foreign expatriates.
As well as the long-established oil & gas industries, the Healthcare Sector is growing fast in Saudi Arabia. There is an abundance of hospital jobs in Saudi for Nurses, specifically in the states of Jeddah and Riyadh.
Saudi offers great career progression opportunities. Nurses get international experience and also get to work in some of the worlds most modern and state-of-the-art hospitals. The amount of Healthcare Facilities is growing at a rapid rate and the common entity between all of these facilities is they are all eager to hire foreign nurses!
There is a large foreign population in Saudi and hospitals provide for these expatriates extensively. Therefore, Saudi hospitals prefer to employ nurses who understand the needs of foreigners and can offer them exceptional care and attention.
Nurses qualified to work in Acute areas such as surgical departments, intensive care units, emergency departments, radiology departments, paediatrics departments, maternity departments etc. are greatly sought after.
The benefits of nursing in Saudi are plentiful – nurses are paid well and salaries are tax-free!
