Part I:

 

Accounting and Finance Professionals

Introduction

Our role in www.jobibex.com is not only to present employers with resumes of job seekers online but also to bring you closer to Oman’s job market.  Today we will start a series of analysis and studies highlighting salaries in Oman.  Our analysis is derived from thousands of jobs we have listed since 2012.  We have spent endless number of hours with HR experts to understand salary structure and rational for each profession.  Our methodology is a mixture of a quantitative and qualitative approach.

Assumptions

Naturally, there are several assumptions you should consider when analyzing salary estimates in Oman.  The following assumptions form the basis of our study:

 

  • Both Omani and expats earn the same salary

The minimum wage of Omani is currently RO325 as per the law.  The market has set RO250 as minimum wage for white collar expat.

  • Pay difference in each level is due to sectoral difference.

This means that Head of Finance of a company with chain restaurant makes RO1,500, RO2,000 lower than his counterpart at an oil and gas company.

  • No qualification or education advantage.

Salaries estimated for each profession, title, sector and organization size assumes bachelor degree.  It assumes zero effect to professional and fancy qualifications lie CFA, CPA, MBA or PhD.

  • Total salary includes basic+ housing+ conveyance

Expats, by law, are entitled to life and medical insurance, tickets and, at certain levels, family status.  Some of the medium and most of the large companies treat their staff by more than that.  Much more!

 

 

The first part of this study will cover salaries of accountants and finance professionals in Oman.  Subsequent parts will be published as and when.

        Generally, it’s not much but considering the fact that you only have 4 years of experience it could be an opportunity to build your international portfolio. Also, a very good news is that accommodation cost has significantly declined to nearly 60% in the past three years.

      HI. I would like to ask if the offer I received 250 is commensurate to a SALES SERVICE OFFICER for a remittance company? Should I ask for more? I am from Southeast Asia and will be working in oman.

        Typically the range is between RO250 to RO450 for mid-sized remittance companies. You can still ask for transport allowances especially if your job entails outdoor sales
