Umm Suqeim Logo

Come and work in the best 24 hour hospital in Dubai. 

We have always recognised the essential contribution of our talented nurses to the welfare, care and outcome of our patients. With a salary of circa 57K pa, plus loading, extras, end of service benefits and no tax, your actual take home is so much more!  This is your chance to get ahead, live in a holiday destination and practice the best medicine you have ever dreamed of.

Dubai is an amazing place to live and play, a top lifestyle and a hub for easy travel. We performed brilliantly in Covid as one of the first countries to have the highest voluntary vaccination rate, easy movement and limited restrictions that allowed businesses and people to continue through the pandemic and prosper.

Professionally you will learn and grow in leaps and bounds. If you are interested in complicated surgical procedures and anaesthetics, diagnostic imaging (radiology, dental radiology, CT), intensive hospital care and emergency medicine then this is the position you have been looking for.  With no referral centres we do it all to an extremely high level, and you experience so much more than you would in a GP clinic. As a 24 hour hospital, with a wealth of qualified nurses, vets, receptionists and nurse assistants, cleaners and pharmacists, you have a chance to work in a great team and devote yourself to actual hands-on nursing.  

We work a 40 hour week of varying shifts, and 12 hour night shifts of week on week off which can allow you to have loads of time off (some of our nurses end up with 10 - 18 weeks off per year) allowing travel, study or just extended beach time!  We work in a friendly multi-cultural tolerant environment.

You ideally will have worked in a busy environment with a good exposure to intensive hospital and surgical cases.  A hunger to learn and know more about cases is essential, and you should have a good grounding in both medical and surgical nursing. Excellent communication skills are required for both collegial interaction with our team members and empathetic care and understanding with clients.  You should be proficient in surgical nursing, anaesthesia, dental procedures and taking care of hospitalised patients.  Ideally, a good knowledge of medicines and competence in radiology would be helpful.  

We value and nurture our relationships - within the hospital and with our patients.
We have a loyal team and a client base - we respect and remember the helping hands.
We set our standards high and strive every day to live up to them.
We push our boundaries for learning and education.
We get the job done.

We save animals. That’s what we do.
If you want to save animals, with a top-class team in an extraordinary environment speak to us.
