your day to day tasks.

The broad range of manufacturing, supply chain, logistics, and industrial support jobs means your work will vary depending on your job title. Some of your daily tasks may include:

  • planning, directing, or coordinating purchasing, warehousing, distribution, and forecasting
  • managing logistics personnel and systems, and directing daily operations
  • recommending optimal transportation modes, routing, equipment, or frequencies
  • establishing or monitoring supply chain-based performance measurement systems
  • managing or working as a part of an assembly line
  • reading or analysing product schematics
  • maintaining metrics, reports, process documentation, or training and safety records
  • conducting quality control inspections and solving problems
  • stocking or inventorying merchandise
  • cleaning or maintaining machinery

what you bring to the table.

As a manufacturing, logistics, supply chain or industrial worker in the Middle East, you need to be hardworking. Successful professionals will have exceptional communication skills, plus planning and organisation skills.

You will need the ability to collaborate and work on a team, alongside basic administrative skills, the ability to prioritise and meet tight deadlines, and skill with delegation and leadership. You’ll frequently work with others and will need to be able to cooperate in a multicultural setting to do your job.

education & training.

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

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 statistics, accounting, management, distribution systems, logistics, engineering, marketing, computer aided design, 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. Roles that already have a supervisory component, such as foreman or production supervisor, have room to move into roles such as a plant manager or operations manager. If management roles aren't for you, using your experience to become a consultant is another option.

Likewise, for those who attain more experience, upper management positions such as presidents and vice presidents are highly sought after. These top-level positions oversee all aspects of manufacturing, logistics and supply chain management and usually come with generous salaries and benefits.
