These guys seem to recruiting (once again)...

Last year they seemed to be offering a max of 15K SAR basic + standard benefits. Contact hours were quite high tho, around 30...

Now, it appears they have changed their working week from Sat-Thu to Sat-Wed! Has anybody worked there or know someone who has?

In Jeddah, they are near the IDB (Islamic Development Bank), which is the old city (balad) area. Balad downwards (southwards) is quite a dumpy/ghetto part of Jeddah. Having lived there for a few months, it was rather akin to some parts of Yemen or Africa!! It's kinda hard to believe you're in the K of SA...

That said, I think they give an accomodation allowance, so you can live more or less where you want in the Jed.

NIT is funded by Saudi Binladen Group SBG, which is one of the largest multinational companies in the region.

Well, if that person was a TEACHER they could be a TWIT.

Hmmm...place to be, inNIT!

What about a graduate of the British University of Languages and Literature? What if he graduated from their Special High Intensity Training in art? Would he be a BULLSH1T artist?

In Ireland they have the Tralee Institute of Technology. They were going to have a Carlow-Laois Institute of Technology but decided against it. Wonder why??

OK, I'm bored!!!!

Actually it is the Jeddah College of Technology (http://www.jct.gotevot.edu.sa/DefaultE.htm) which is next to the Islamic Development Bank in the old town of Jeddah.

The National Institute of Technology is out in some town called Bahrah, east of Jeddah on the way to Mecca.

Oh well, hopefully it is a little quieter out there since it is near the sand dunes, though the school is also next to a big industrial area.

Well, that big industrial area is in fact the Bin Laden Factory/Company for construction and maintenance of Bridges.
