There’s good news for the Middle East, as it’s been revealed that both the business sector and Mackenzie Jones have received a huge boost in confidence – meaning more opportunities for jobseekers.

With the UAE outperforming its regional counterparts, many companies have noted substantial year-on-year increases in the number of vacancies. Various industries have advertised for numerous roles, and that due to the business environment gaining confidence, this has influenced the hiring environment to follow suit.

David Mackenzie of Mackenzie Jones commented: "The demand for finance and accounting professionals in the Middle East should be stronger in 2013. Certain markets such as Qatar and Saudi Arabia will remain undiminished in their business activities, while the UAE (and Dubai in particular) will continue to grow in confidence and attract further outside investment. We are seeing hiring needs across all sectors, with both local businesses as well as MNCs focussing on genuine growth this year."

Many recruitment experts have expressed their opinions, stating that there would be more forthcoming job availability within the banking and financial sectors, hospitality, transport, construction and retail industries. And with many heading to the Middle East to seek out a job opportunity in Dubai or career development across the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and Qatar, Mackenzie Jones remains hopeful that more candidates will be utilising their services to secure a longstanding career within the UAE.

"In particular, we’ve observed that the retail and hospitality areas are experiencing rapid growth, with an increase in the amount of customer-facing roles," added Mackenzie. "There’s also been a huge boost to the construction and transport business, which has led to many hunting out highly qualified specialist roles, including project managers and senior engineers."
