Why construction associates should fall in love with Qatar
You might not have thought about developing your career in Doha. But contrary to (some) popular opinion, it’s one of the best places in the Middle East for associates looking to tuck into big projects and earn tax-free.
James Bremen, construction partner at Herbert Smith Freehills, tells us that Qatar has hitherto been unjustly overshadowed by alternative destinations. ‘There’s a great village community here,’ he says. ‘Not to mention great beaches, five star hotels and the party city of Dubai being only a 45 minute flight away.”
In terms of actual work, the Doha branch of HSF’s integrated construction team is growing fast, with existing associates kept busy with ‘only large matters’ including transactional work totalling some $30 billion.
Other incentives to move to HSF in Qatar include a high standard of living, that tax-free income and a workload that transcends Doha to include countries such as Malaysia, Russia, Egypt, Morocco and Algeria.
