where you can work.

Fast moving consumer goods jobs are found in diverse industries across the Middle East; wherever people buy goods or services, your skills are needed. FMCG is a thriving sector in many countries, including the UAE and Saudi Arabia, and one that continues to grow with each passing day. Consumers in the Gulf are purchasing more local and imported products than at any other time in history, so specialists in this field are in high demand.

your day to day tasks.

The broad range of FMCG jobs and specialties in the Middle East means every day presents new challenges. Dependent on your role, some of your daily tasks could include:

  • ensuring quality, safety, and legal requirements are met
  • developing and planning sales and merchandising strategies for brands
  • providing launch support, promotion planning and analysis, plus distribution and share gap analysis
  • assisting with internal and external training schemes
  • maintaining relationships with customers, supermarkets, and hypermarkets
  • liaising with government departments, suppliers, or transport companies
  • achieving assigned marketing or sales targets
  • planning, coordinating, and monitoring incoming shipments and local market distribution
  • ensuring the timely delivery of orders

what you bring to the table.

To thrive in the FMCG sector, you need excellent communication, clerical, and administrative skills. Education and expertise in marketing, sales, client interfacing, event coordination, human resources, and other areas may help guide which fast moving consumer goods jobs are the best fit for you.

In many cases, you’ll need the ability to collaborate and work on a team, and to prioritise and meet tight deadlines. For management positions, skill with delegation and leadership is essential. With the above building blocks and the experience you gain along the way, you'll be able to build a long-lasting FMCG career in the Gulf.

education & training.

At management level, many FMCG professionals usually hold a bachelor's degree in business administration, logistics, engineering, marketing, or a related field, and possess relevant industry experience. In some cases, FMCG managers don't have a university degree, but many years of progressively responsible on-the-job experience in the Middle East.

To further your career ambitions and increase your chances of finding work in a competitive job market such as Dubai, you may wish to consider completing coursework in management, accounting, distribution systems, logistics, engineering, marketing, or production analysis.

where your career is headed.

With a university degree, leadership skills, ongoing training and job experience, you can move into a range of supervisory and management roles. It's not unusual for FMCG support jobs to branch off into areas such as sales, public relations, marketing, project management, and other related fields. There are endless career possibilities in this sector!
