What to expect from your package?

by Expatguru - 06/26/2012

"This article gives useful tips for potential teachers planning to work in Saudi Arabia and describes important features of the compensation package one can expect."

One of the first questions which come to the mind of expatriate teachers planning to take up assignments in Saudi Arabia is the compensation. There is an acute shortage of qualified and experienced teachers in the kingdom. If you have the right qualifications and experience, rest assured that you will get an attractive remuneration.

Note that there is no tax levied in Saudi Arabia and you are allowed to remit your entire savings back home, unlike certain countries where expats have to spend a percentage of their earnings locally. This is perhaps the most important and attractive part of the compensation as compared to the home country.

Your package would typically comprise of several components. A basic pay, house rent allowance (if accommodation is not provided), transportation allowance (if transportation is not provided), medical and dental insurance coverage for you, your spouse and dependent children, annual economy class return tickets for you and your family and free or subsidized education for your kids in the school where you work. In addition, all recruitment costs and visa renewal fees are borne by the sponsor. In case of large Universities, you would usually be offered free furnished accommodation located either within the campus or in leased quarters. Where accommodation is unavailable or not suitable, you would be given a House Rent Allowance.

I would like to add my two cents here. Strike a good bargain with your basic pay, because your other allowances such as housing and transportation are linked with this. In other words, higher your basic salary, higher would be your allowances. Before signing your contract, clarify with your employer about the insurance coverage. Remember that there are various insurance companies operating in the kingdom and depending upon the premium paid by your sponsor, the insurance companies levy a certain minimum amount, which you have to pay by cash each time you visit the hospital. Certain sponsors specifically mention about 100% medical coverage, so I would advise you to get this point clarified at the time of negotiation.
I would also advise potential teachers to negotiate well and strike a good bargain. Usually, employers do not mind paying slightly more than what was advertised in case they feel that your skills are badly needed. This is why you would sometimes find people with different salaries on the same pay scale.

Teaching in Saudi Arabia would be a rewarding experience if you have the right skills and the right attitude.

I might want to include my two pennies here. Hit a decent deal with your essential pay, on the grounds that your different stipends, for example, lodging and transportation are connected with this essay service. At the end of the day, higher your fundamental pay, higher would be your stipends.

I'm finding it difficult with my attested degree from Washington D.C. (United State of America) to get into Saudi. They are telling me it will take 2 to 3 months to get a visa. If teachers are badly need, I have a Bachelors of Science in Education, why do does it take so long to get into that country? Also it is very culturally sensitive, women are not allowed to drive or go anywhere without a man in there company, father, son, brother, uncle or Private driver, is there someone designated to drive an expat women to and from school and for shopping in this packages?
