Public Question Asked by amy about Riyadh
How about marketing /communications/ PR / advertising / Media jobs for a woman?
My fiance got a very good offer in Riyadh and I will probably be relocating next year with him. I am a young professional in the marketing field (copywriter/pr). I would like to know if I can find a job as a woman in an international advertising agency like Memac Ogilvy, Leo Burnett or a PR agency where I can continue on my career path. I know I can get a job at a school but I don't want to. Are the international agencies and companies also restricted for men? If women work there are they also segregated or depends on the work place? The only place I heard of where women can work freely is Rotana. Thanks.

no worries about you finding work. all adv and media companies recruit females. whether your married and your are on ur husband residency or if your father works here so you can be on his residency.
my brother was account director in leo riyadh 3 years ago before moving to another country.
good luck for you and ur husband to be :)

Agencies like Leo Burnett, Grey, promo 7 and others usually hair girls, since they will work in a more privet offices than other businesses. they pay very good salaries compared to banks.
