U.A.E industry demands new Professionals in 2017

UAE professionals with healthcare qualifications and experience are more likely to find a job today than most of their peers, as the industry continued to show a high demand for new talent.

Across the Middle East, there are job opportunities in businesses operating in the information technology and telecommunications, production, manufacturing and consumer goods industries, among many others. Candidates who are willing to work in customer service, or in purchase, logistics and supply chain roles are also likely to land new employment offers.

These are the trends highlighted in the recently released Monster Employment Index, which tracks thousands of job listings online across the region.

Analysts, however, had earlier forecast that hiring of accounting professionals, especially those with experience in the collection of value-added tax (VAT), is likely to pick up this year or in the run-up to the implementation of the new tax in 2018.

The trend reflects the UAE government’s aspirations with regards to attracting top talent to help drive the economy.  It was announced on Feb 5th, 2017 that the government will issue entry visas to attract “exceptional” experts in the medical field, as well as in scientific, research, technological and cultural domains.

A new entry visa system aimed at attracting qualified and talented professionals to the UAE was approved by the Cabinet, and the second phase will involve reaching out to talent in the fields of medicine, science and research, among others. The new visa system will give a big boost to tourism, health and education sectors by enhancing the UAE’s competitive excellence on the global stage. 

The conducive environment and lifestyle, as well as financial facilities and sophisticated infrastructure, are the most important factors to lure extraordinary competencies and high skills. The system will offer new facilities for international companies to recruit more professionals.
