Dubai Job Market


The Dubai job market continues to grow healthily, which is good news for job seekers as there are plenty of opportunities. But, where there are opportunities there will of course be fierce competition and candidates will need to up their game in 2013 if they are to land their dream job.

According to a press release from marketwire, recruitment in the United Arab Emirates is expected to boom in 2013 as the local economy enjoys a significant boost in investment.

An increasing number of large-scale projects have been announced by both the government and the private sector, and recruitment agencies are reporting that up to 15% more jobs are being advertised compared to a year ago.

Traditional areas of the economy such as oil, gas and petrochemicals are predicted to generate the most number of new jobs, but sectors that have been slow in the recent economic climate, including banking, construction and real estate, are also showing very positive signs.

Recruitment experts in the region are in no doubt that this year will represent a great time for those looking to work in the UAE.

A spokesperson for Middle East specialist Mackenzie Jones said:

Dubai and the UAE as a whole has not stopped being a popular place to come and work, but we have definitely seen a significant upturn in the employment market recently.

Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed, Minister of Presidential Affairs and Deputy Prime Minister, announced the move to adjust the holidays last week. Speaking on the second day of a Government Summit in Dubai, he said this was part of efforts to make private sector employment more appealing to Emiratis – a sector in which he said 30,000 new positions were available.

The Minister of Labour has been assigned to adjust the working hours and days of the private sector to be more compatible with those of the public sector

said Sheikh Mansour.

Private sector employees work up to 57 extra days a year

The current law only grants a day a week of mandatory rest for private sector workers, whereas government employees have two days off and are also allotted longer public holidays. As a result, many private sector employees work an extra 57 days a year.

Sheikh Mansour added

There is a 57 working day gap each year between the two sectors. These issues need to be addressed and we are working on finding suitable solutions for it.

    Vi saluto e ringrazio
    Michele
