Είμαι 27 ετών. Είμια επαγγελματίας οδηγός σε φορτηγά και νταλίκες. Έχω ακούσει πως κάποιες Ελληνικές εταιρίες κάνουν έργα στο Ντουμπάϊ με πολύ καλό μισθό. Θα ήθελα να δουλέψω εκεί και πως μπορώ να έρθω σε επικοινωνία?







Hello Spyro.

Thank you for your email.  I am responding in English as it is easier for me and our readers at

Please note that although there is such work, it is very very hard work and usually not very well paid.  All employers prefer to get cheaper labour from Asia and even if they do hire a European, the other Asian staff (who are by far the majority) will not treat the 'intruder' well.  The summer temperatures are horrible and the weather can be very difficult.  Overtime is normal in this industry but not paid very well.

Yes, many Greek companies have very good projects in Dubai and there may be job opportunities with them, but the only way to find out if they would take you on and what they would pay is to contact them directly.  There is no list available to give you.  All I can suggest is to pick up the Greek phone-book and contact all large Construction Companies in Greece and see if they have projects in Dubai and apply for a job in Greece.  If they are willing to give you a job, you should only accept if the contract includes accommodation and transport provided by the company - Cash Allowances are never enough.

Do let me know how you get on.
