Would anybody be able to advise me if having a criminal records appeared on CRB will affect my chance to get a job in Abu Dhabi and other gulf countries?
The record was from 13 yrs ago (possession of carnabis - got fined, never been sentenced.) I assume from my experience that this doesn't affect me to get a job in England as the charge is not relevant to the position I have and it was a long time ago. Also, at the moment, I still remain working with the well reputed British company (crb checked by them)
However, I know the Britain is not Middle East and Middle East is not Britain... How do they think about it if you apply the job with the criminal record?
I'm thinking to apply for a few posts. One of them asks for the criminal record on their application process while the others do not ask for it (not mentioned on the job detail/requirement to send along with CV - or maybe they'll ask for it later?)
Any advice would be appreciated.
