You'll be working within a fast-paced and exciting environment for the largest publisher in the Middle East, based in the heart of Abu Dhabi.

The chief selling point of this stylish bar-restaurant is its wide terrace, so close to the Regent’s Canal that you can touch the bobbing barges. It’s quite pricey, but the clientele are happy to keep ordering as long as the sun keeps shining (you may find the interior completely empty of a July lunchtime), and it’s not as if the venue is cutting corners in its provisions. Cocktails (around £8) come in fairly standard categories, but the quality of the mixes and the spirit bases need little gimmickry, and all syrups and purées are made on-site. The wine list is long: of the 50-ish varieties, a dozen are served by the half-litre carafe, the bottle or two sizes of glass; if you’re just after a vin de pays to plonk into an ice bucket near the lap of the water, it’ll come in around £16. A flatscreen TV has been placed in front of a sofa for rainy days, though it’s just as nice to watch the barges from inside.
Venue says: “Express lunch two-for-one menu, Monday to Friday – only £15 for two people!”
