UAE Salary Guide 2016
Moving abroad can be exciting and scary at the same time! Have a look at what salary you should be expecting for various roles within Architecture and Interior Design.
The monthly packages below include everything that is available in the Gulf region i.e. basic salary + accommodation allowance + car allowance. There is no provision from an employer in the UAE for school fees or other associated costs, as funds for this must come out of the individuals basic salary. The only “extras” that would be added would be health insurance for the individual (not family) and 1 economy return flight to and from the point of origin for the individual (not family).
The lower end of the salary scale would be appropriate for a smaller design practice with the higher end for large consultancies; multi-disciplinary companies along with contractors and developers.
