Dubai’s job market is particularly competitive. On top of the talent saturation, hiring tends to be seasonal. Most recruitment takes place between January and March, and almost grinds to a halt over Ramadan and the hottest summer months.

background on dubai.

Dubai is part of the United Arab Emirates, a confederation of Emirates which also includes Abu Dhabi, Ajman, Fujairah, Ras Al-Khaimah, Sharjah and Umm Al-Quwain. As with many other Gulf states, oil and gas underpin the UAE’s economy. In recent decades, economic diversification has been encouraged, and non-energy related business now accounts for more than half of the country’s GDP. Major sectors include petrochemicals, downstream oil refining, tourism, telecommunications, and aviation.

Dubai responded to the need to diversify more rapidly than the other Emirates, and has developed a wide portfolio of industrial, manufacturing, construction, and service based interests. The Jebel Ali Free Zone Authority (JAFZA) port has contributed greatly to the economy, by providing preferential trading conditions to many international manufacturing and distribution companies. This has been supplemented by the establishment of Free-trade Zones, which have special tax, customs and imports regimes, and are governed by their own framework of regulations.

good to know.

Salaries in Dubai are generally similar to those paid in western countries, and the days of ‘hardship packages’ are generally coming to an end. However, as the UAE has no personal taxation scheme or legislation, your net income is usually much greater, which is one of the major attractions of working in Dubai.

You may have heard of expat packages being split into various elements, such as basic salary, car allowance, housing allowance, medical cover, education for school age children, and plane tickets home. Today, this is a thing of the past, as most employers tend to pay cash packages, which cover all these expenses. Some employers offer performance related or other bonuses, but this is not guaranteed.

In addition to receiving their salary, employees are awarded an ‘indemnity’ at the end of the contract period. The indemnity is usually based on basic salary excluding any bonuses. It is required by law be paid to expatriate workers, and usually amounts to 21 days of basic pay per year of employment for the first five years, and 30 days’ salary per year of employment thereafter.

working hours in dubai.

The working week in Dubai varies between 40 and 48 hours, depending on each company’s own policy. Office hours are usually from 8.30 or 9.00 am to 5.30 or 6.00 pm, but some local companies choose to split the working day into two, usually from 8.00 am to 1.00 pm, with a second shift between 4.00 to 7.00 pm.

As Friday is the Muslim day of rest, the working week in Dubai runs from Sunday to Thursday, and the weekend falls on Friday and Saturday. In the month of Ramadan, the working day is reduced to six hours in the private sector. Legally, this should apply to all staff, but many companies only apply it to Muslim employees, who fast during daylight hours.

how to get a job in dubai.

According to LinkedIn’s “Middle East and North Africa Recruiting Trends 2017” report, the most sought after skills for Dubai based businesses are statistical analysis, data mining, public policy, international relations, algorithm design, web architecture, SEO/SEM marketing, and UI design. And if you’re not a tech whizz, the same report notes that job seekers will have better chances of finding employment in Dubai in the operations, sales, engineering, business development, and marketing sectors.

If you’d like to apply for a job in Dubai, there are many options available to you, including applying directly to companies, searching on online job boards, and joining networking sites. Working with a recruitment firm is a common option, and still one of the best ways to procure a job within the Emirate.

While Randstad MENA cannot offer job seekers one-on-one advice or walk-in appointments at this time, we encourage job seekers to submit their CV to us, or apply to one of our advertised vacancies.  

visa requirements.

Visa requirements for Dubai are constantly evolving, and differ depending on your country of origin. We advise that you check with the UAE embassy in your home country for more information.

If you are taking up work in Dubai, your sponsor, which is normally your employer, will arrange the necessary visas and permits for you to legally live and work in the city. They will be able to help you with the required documents.
