Hospitals in the United Arab Emirates are seeking hundreds of nurses from the UK and Ireland Wednesday 7 September 2011 PDF Print Many hospitals are brand new with state-of-the art facilities, offering high standards of care and excellent professional development opportunities for nurses Hundreds of nurses trained in the UK and Ireland are being sought by hospitals based in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) according to Executive Solutions – a UAE-based recruitment consultancy that is seeking to encourage nurses from the UK and Ireland to consider moving to the Middle East. “The UAE offers exciting opportunities for nurses,” says Louise Shields, Director, Healthcare Division, Executive Solutions. “Many hospitals are brand new with state-of-the art facilities, offering high standards of care and excellent professional development opportunities for nurses. Salaries are very competitive and the tax-free status makes this an attractive destination. Moreover, the UAE is a progressive country that is safe and exciting with a vibrant nightlife, world-class shopping, extensive leisure activities and year-round sun, all within a seven hour flight of home.” The number of healthcare facilities in the UAE is increasing dramatically, and nurses are urgently needed to staff these establishments. In 2010, the Ministry of Health licensed 163 new establishments and, so far, 70 more have been approved since the beginning of 2011. To help nurses better understand the opportunities in the UAE, Executive Solutions has launched a new initiative that seeks to provide the information nurses need about the UAE, the healthcare environment and the job opportunities currently available in the country. Information can be accessed through http://www.wishyouwerenursinghere.com or through the Facebook and Bebo groups. Additionally, recruitment days will be held across the country in September and October to provide nurses with the chance to talk to nurses that are already working in the UAE. About Executive Solutions Executive Solutions is based in the UAE and provides not only recruitment services but also on-the-ground mentoring to help nurses settle into their new roles.
