Thank you for reading the news about Expat gets job in after tweet goes viral and now with the details

Aden - Yasmine El Tohamy - The Dubai community came to his rescue.

A Dubai expat, who was recently made redundant, got a new job because of his tweet that went viral.

Earlier last month, British expat Jonathan Gard tweeted that he was made redundant by the company he was with. "So, I was made redundant today. If anyone needs a Restaurant General Manager or Assistant F&B Manager with luxury brand experience with Jumeirah, Emaar Hospitality & Sofitel, either in the UAE or Asia, I'd be massively grateful for passing the word on," the 46-year-old wrote on his Twitter handle.

Jonathan's tweet immediately made waves and Dubai's massive expat community came to his aid. He received multiple private messages because of his tweet. It was with the help of these messages that he landed his current job.

"In amongst an absolute flood of DMs, one person said they knew SWR had vacancies. I've met their boss before several years ago and he's a great guy, so I added him on LinkedIn. He then mentioned they were restructuring and if I would like to come in for a chat. Three interviews later I've been hired at a stunning new outlet and thankfully a position in time for Christmas!" Gard told Al Khaleej Today.

Jonathan excitedly announced his new job on Twitter, thanking the Dubai community for all their help.

"17 days after redundancy, hundreds of retweets, dozens of emails & DMs, 20-odd applications & 4 interviews (3 with same company), I got a new job. Thank you for all the kind messages and to everyone who tried to help. I'll be running Le Petit Belge in Motor City. It's swish," Gard wrote.

He also remarked that he received offers from two other positions.

Commenting on his unusual job hunt, Gard, who has been living in the UAE for over seven years, said: "It's such a competitive market now that you have to do everything you can and I think I'm quite creative. My next step would have been to go on a local radio station and sell myself there!"
