Hi, I wonder if someone could help me as I feel quite lost. I was offered 2600 BHD salary a monthplus 900 BHD for accomodation to move to Bahrain, coming from europe for a sales position. Expat contrat. I have one flight back home and that's it ! Around 7 years of experience in sales. Doesn't seem too much ? Anyone could help me and give me some ideas.

The accommodation allowance is more than enough to get you a comfortable, furnished two-bedroom in the city centre of Bahrain, but the base salary is definitely not too enticing, especially as someone with seven years experience in sales. Have a look at the Cost of Living in Bahrain page to get more of an idea of what you can budget for.

Seven years of sales experience is just not enough to get a lucrative job in current world scenario.
Your lifestyle depends on how mush u need to spent. But dis salary is sufficient enough to save 50-60%

Would feel glad if some kind-hearted generous Bahrain expert can help me in guiding whether 2300 BHD per month as base salary plus accommodation and medical allowance in a global bank is enough to live, save and have a good life in Manama? I would be shifting base from India to Manama. Having 10+ years of experience.
Kindly share pluses n minuses of the mentioned offer and guide right..
Thanks.. Taps
