Exciting holiday opportunities are within even the smallest of budgets. Within a few hours’ plane ride, you can reach popular holiday destinations such as Jordan, Egypt, India, and Kenya. Already residing and working in the region, it's easy and relatively inexpensive to visit some attractions that you would not otherwise be able to afford. For example, how would you like a trip to the ancient city of Petra completely carved out of rock, or the pyramids of Giza, or the fabulous Taj Mahal, or the game reservations near Nairobi? All are possible within modest holiday budgets.
When living in Saudi Arabia, you will find some interesting holiday sites inside the Kingdom, some of which can be visited on the weekends. Examples are the ancient Nebatian civilization at Medain Saleh, the old Hejaz railway built by the Turks and destroyed by Lawrence of Arabia and the forces of the Sherif of Makkah, the fantastic scenery at high elevation in the Asir National Park, some of the best scuba diving reefs in the World, and the glories of the desert at many locations.
While employed at one of the hospitals, all employees and authorized dependents are provided with necessary medical and hospital care at no personal cost. Limited emergency dental care is also provided.
Authorized dependent children are sent at company expense to international schools operated in Saudi Arabia to standards established in Europe and/or North America. There are certain limitations on this benefit regarding age and number of eligible children, so please advise your recruiter of any children who will accompany you and inquire about eligibility.
