Maybe I was lucky who knows, but bottom line a good result. Worth every penny, DM,$ or whatever.

Excellent website, informative and easy to navigate
Excellent website, very informative, easy to navigate and very user friendly – well done, keep up the good work – as Expats (certainly in KSA) we are a diminishing breed and need all the assistance we can to maintain our globetrotting ideals
Thanks and regards
Enriched new website - and great new features
The new WEBSITE is definitely greatly enhanced with cleaner feel and quicker access to job data and personal data. The enriched page definition is also superior and visibly ergonomic.
Thanks for your continued support and state of art web-site service.
A very satisfied member
Job offer makes a very happy bunny
Well, I took the plunge and joined Expats Direct a few weeks ago, and now I've been offered a job in the Middle East as a result. Am a very happy bunny. This sounds like one of those 'satisfied customer' letters you see in adverts, but for me it's very real. Good website - keep it up. I'll continue to use the other features when I'm overseas...
Best regards, Andrew Emery
Quality Service and Live, Fresh Jobs Every Month
Being a professional and long time EXPAT, one who uses many EXPAT job and information sites, I have found EXPATS DIRECT to be the best resource available for EXPAT workers.
They have been a great asset, not only for securing that next job or contract but also providing a person with all the information he or she would additionally need, as in Country information, security, tax, banking, visa and legal information. Etc.
In addition, not only do they allow companies to directly post job leads but they also actively research and post jobs from other sources. Providing the key reason we join - A large quantity and great quality of EXPAT JOBS!!!!
David Smith and his staff have always been willing to help any individual, including myself, and the door is always open for a chat and a cup of coffee or they are only at the end of a telephone.
During the course of my membership, there was one personal event where David sent E-mail for me to a hiring company, attaching my CV on file. He explained that my PC had crashed and on my behalf submitted me for the advertised position. Because of his actions I secured that contract and was working the following week, earning that EXPAT paycheck!
Additionally, there was one incident that I remember on the "Message Board" of a fellow member, terminated in Abu Dhabi. He went to the "Internet Café" and saw a job (in Abu Dhabi) on the web site. He called them, was immediately interviewed and immediately hired, I believe all in the space of 30 minutes. Now that's what I call a job lead!
Due to the relationship I have had with David (and his staff), during the course of my membership, I have found EXPATS DIRECT to be always there for you when you need help. An EXPAT that understands an EXPAT!
On a personal level, I now consider David Smith to be a personal friend, who as a fellow EXPAT has always been there for me. His friendship and assistance will always be greatly valued and appreciated.
Thank you David!
To the Editor and staff at Expats Direct,
Many thanks to you all for the continued support and excellent service I have received since registering with Expats Direct some three years ago.
Your additional support in recent months has also been appreciated, especially with the problems I was experiencing with PC transmissions in SE Asia.
Well done and may your success continue and be shared with all members who register with you.

Great for all Expats (in or out of work)
Many thanks for your reply and advise, it was a great help. I would just like to say that your website is great, for all expats (in or out of work). At least I know we have the support when we need it!! Many thanks
Hi Dave and the team,
Just a quick note to say keep up the good work. I find your service to be innovative and much less repetitious than some other expat organisations.
It is also reassuring to note your vigilance regarding various scams in operation e.g Nigerian outlets requesting subscription fees etc. Look forward to seeing the revamped service fully up and running . Cheers
ExpatsDirect.Com is full of activity!
I will never stop blessing the money I invested in subscribing to your services. I have been receiving during this first month of subscription more ads than I ever got during one full year of subscription to many of the other sites.
Does not matter that, so far none of the replies I have been filing have resulted in a positive outcome, but I am convinced that eventually the right solution will come.
Keep on like this with the excellent quality of your services.
Got hired within 30 minutes of job posting!
No I am not kidding either, I am based in the UAE Abu Dhabi, Out of work with reasons I don't want to go into !!
As usual I went to the Internet cafe to check my inbox, to see what jobs Expat Direct have on offer that day! and one came straight into the inbox, for doc control, I phoned the agency Jock Hoskins Prime International Resources Ltd based in the UK, and they said they would phone me in 5 minutes.
After talking to the client based in Abu Dhabi, which he did, he phoned me back: asked if I could go for the interview there and then, of course I replied, the address was just a taxi ride away.
Anyhow I managed to get the interview, and got the job all within half an hour of the job coming on the Expats Direct site.
The Manager who interviewed me could not believe how fast it had happened, He told me he only contacted the agency an hour ago, who then posted it on Expats direct within the half hour!
It paid off joining Expats Direct, well worth the membership fee, I still cannot take it in, how fast it happened. If that does not prove a point to people who are dubious, or humming and whinging thinking about joining, then I don't know what will.
I would not have seen it if it had not come into my Inbox. Now I have a job for 12 months with a very reputable British company based in the UAE, Good salary, accommodation living allowance, car... for the price of the membership fee.
Hey it does work!
check your inbox daily with fresh jobs off the internet press from Expats Direct. You have a bloody good chance.
It would be good to hear from other expats who have managed to get a job from Expats direct and hope to hear your story.
Well done to Expats Direct, your doing a good job Dave, Now for a few beers to celebrate my 12-month contract.
Cheers Dave and Jock Hoskins Hic!!

User friendly and way above the rest
Hi thanks for the quick reply to my enquiry it's giving me a bit of encouragement so I think I will bite the bullet and give it a go.
By the way I have decided to subscribe to your site it's head and shoulders above most employment websites I have looked at, and I have looked at a lot having just been made redundant. I think you have got the format spot on when compared to the other sites that feel remote and unfriendly with job search engines that are overly complex and tedious to use especially if you don't have broadband. Keep up the good work.
A great reputation
F.A.O. Mr Dave Smith.
Please could you supply me with information on how to join Expats Direct.
I've been an expat for more years than I want to remember. Having heard of your organisation
from others and the respect in which you are given by people I've spoken to, I would like the
opportunity to become a member.
I the past I've been a member of other organisations in seeking employment overseas,
but never had any luck. It's always be through my own efforts and the "who you know rather
than what you know" code of practice.
Success for a member gone to Dubai
