Knowing Your Options How To Find Part Time Jobs in Qatar

Finding part time jobs in Qatar can be quite a challenge if you only have limited resources and contacts in the country. Too often, it is quite a normal picture for any immigrant worker that he is living less than his means or his responsibilities are quite big that his salary is not able to compensate. I for one is among them. And this inspired me to write my ideas on different options of finding Qatar living part time job vaccancies.

Getting a part time job is a clever way to get your finances better instead of getting loans with high interest in the country. Either you want to pay for your debt, build up a figurative saving, finance your family in your country, or you just wanna engage to more activities to make yourself even more productive, I hope that this tips in finding part time jobs will be very helpful to you.

Although there are many open doors and possibilities that this country provides, getting a part time job is not as easy compared to other countries. But this is Middle East and the way of lifestyle here is quite different. If only we live in English countries, getting part time jobs will be very easy. But we’re not, so I hope that this article will help you.

Are Part Time Work in Qatar Illegal?

Technically, Yes! This is actually prohibited under the Qatar Labour Law stating that one shouldn’t be working for another employer if you signed an exclusive contract with your sponsor. Unless you are given a special permission to work for someone else, then it can be an exemption. Or the other risky option – to work in part times jobs without making it known. The latter is quite observed by very many individuals in the country. You just have to be really careful that your sponsor will not know about this and that it isn’t affecting your current responsibilities with them. Otherwise, you will be rewarded with a breach of contract offense where penalty may occur depending on your sponsor’s decision. If this happens, the one who hired you may also face several offenses.

  • There are hobbies that you can actually make money out of it. You probably know the things that you are fond of doing.

What I did is asked my friends if they know someone who wants to learn ballroom and I get several gig!

When was the last time you cleaned up your garage? You might notice that a lot of them are things that you no longer need. But why throw them? You can actually make money from it!
