UAE: These Sectors Are Hiring And These Are The Expected Salaries

The lockdown that took place in many countries around the world due to COVID-19 had a huge negative effect on the economy. However,  recruitment experts are upbeat for 2021 and say hiring is on the rise in the UAE

If you have experience in sectors such as IT and digital technology, FinTech, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, manufacturing and fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG). However, industries including hospitality, tourism, leisure and entertainment continue to be impacted by the pandemic, hiring experts add.

“That being said, these sectors have got busier and we expect the number of jobs available in these industries to increase as movement restrictions ease and vaccine administration increases,” Chris Greaves, managing director of global recruitment agency Hays in the Gulf region told the National.

“Information technology is the most in-demand profession in the current market and specifically jobs relating to cloud, software engineering, data analytics and artificial intelligence,” Mr Greaves says. “We have also seen ongoing demand for sales professionals who are commercially astute and results driven.”

There is high demand for software engineers, development operations (DevOps) and security roles specifically focused on open-sourced tools for back-end and front-end development utilizing cloud-based tools, according to AIQU Search, a division of TASC Outsourcing that focuses on technology recruitments.

“We are actively hiring across most verticals in technology: software engineers, DevOps engineers, quality assurance engineers, product, data, mobile engineers and security,” Bradley Maasdorp, DevOps and cloud lead (permanent recruitment) at AIQU Search told the National.

He also adds saying, “I think the global market is moving away from business analysts and project manager roles and shifting towards product-focused roles where collaborative teams are in play.”

Recruitment agency Mackenzie Jones Middle East is focused on filling finance, sales and marketing roles in food, FMCG and consumer industries, says David Mackenzie, founder of the company. Some retail companies have also started to recruit for roles such as country director and general manager, he tells The National.
