An experienced and trained Administrative Assistant looking for employment in Qatar!!

I am a western trained Canadian resident with a great dream and desire to work in Qatar.

I have previously worked in Afghansitan on yearly contracts and I am used to flying in and out Dubai on rest & relaxation times.

During my tenure there, I fell in love with working in the Middle East, so it is my greatest desire to return to work there.

In the last couple of years, I have been upgrading my education to include Medical Terminology and Office Procedures to add to my Legal and General administraitve skills. 

I would like to find a full-time yearly renewable contract, preferably in the administrative field of the medical industry.

Due to my currently residing in Canada, I would need a work visa supplied by the company.

Looking forward to future contact from Qatar companies.
