KUWAIT CITY : The salaries of expatriates working in senior positions in Kuwait are lesser than the salaries of their counterparts in rest of the GCC countries, reports Al-Rai daily.

According to a recent survey conducted by Gulf Business, the average salary of expatriates in senior positions is $7,826. This is nine percent lesser than the average in Saudi Arabia.

The average salary of senior expatriate employees in Oman is $7,846 and $7,867 in Bahrain. Some jobs in Kuwait have the highest salaries compared to other GCC countries.

They include the position of hotel manager, which is of an average salary of $15,290. This is 38 percent higher than the average salary for this position in Saudi Arabia, where it is $10,404, and 44 percent higher than that in the United Arab Emirates where it is $9,741.

The average salary in general in Kuwait this year is $8,083, which is 26.3 percent lower than the average salary of last year. The survey revealed that the salary of an administrative or executive manager of a multi-national company is $34,460, but the salary of an administrative or executive manager of a local company is about $24,675.

The Gulf Business said this year’s survey revealed dramatic changes in the regional economy especially with the enforcement of Value-Added Tax and increase in charges of many services. It stated, “Despite of the course of the survey in the past years which gave a unique insight into the salaries that expatriates in a number of senior positions are expected to receive, it is becoming clear that the jobs included in the survey do not reflect the truth of the workforce”.

The Gulf Business said the survey this year included a number of lower positions such as RC executive with salary of $2,738, logistics executive with salary of $2,813, sales executive with salary of $4,126, and receptionist with salary of $1,865.
