More graduates are hearing through the grapevine that Dubai is growing as a careers marketplace, and with its envious weather and lifestyle proving tempting options, the Middle East is enjoying healthy growth in promising candidates.
(PRWEB UK) 13 May 2013
Over 30 per cent of Middle East and North Africa employers have confirmed that they will be hiring within the next month, and with hundreds of British workers moving overseas in a bid to increase their job prospects, this transition will prove a huge boost for the MENA job industry – as well as for recruitment specialist, Mackenzie Jones.
With roughly a third of businesses stating that they are most likely hiring this May, according to ExpatForum.com these figures indicate hope for more hires within the employment arena; displaying a rise of two per cent for both circumstances in contrast to the third quarter of last year.
David Mackenzie of Mackenzie Jones said: “What we’re seeing here is a positive outlook for expatriates – as well as prospective employers. More graduates are hearing through the grapevine that Dubai is growing as a careers marketplace, and with its envious weather and lifestyle proving tempting options, the Middle East is enjoying healthy growth in promising candidates.”
In addition, the most wanted qualifications for would-be employees include: business management, commerce, computer science and engineering; while the UAE came first in the list of the most attractive counties in the Middle East. With the promise of higher pay also an attractive incentive, it’s little wonder that many are embarking on a Dubai job search expedition in the hopes of securing a placement in their dream industry.
“Networking is an important part of any jobseeker’s journey – especially in the power hub for the affluent that is the Middle East,” said Mackenzie. “Another great element to working in the Middle East is adding international experience to your CV. While working anywhere in Europe will always be of great value, the difference in social, cultural and economic factors to MENA gives you leverage compared to other European countries thanks to its completely different outlook.”
