(PRWEB UK) 26 September 2013
British expats have rated the UAE as the third most popular destination – beating off stiff competition from the likes of Spain and France.
Previously, Australia, Canada and New Zealand held the top three spots in the NatWest International Personal Banking Quality of Life Report – but New Zealand has since been stripped of its crown by the United Arab Emirates. The primary factor encouraging Brits to travel to the UAE is career opportunities, with 75 per cent stating incentive this as their main drive.
David Mackenzie of Mackenzie Jones stated: “Mackenzie Jones has seen a marked increase of expats arriving in the UAE. There has been a marked shift to families arriving looking for improved job prospects coupled with the chance to have a shorter commute, excellent schooling and an outdoor lifestyle. Prices in housing have started to increase but this has yet to stop the enquiries Mackenzie Jones has received over the last six months.
“As the European economies struggle to recover from the fiscal issues and with the continued growth in the Middle East, Mackenzie Jones has seen a demanding start to look beyond the traditional Middle Eastern candidate base.”
A report published on AMEinfo.com noted the results of a survey, whereby finance services experts in the UK were asked about their opinions on relocating to the UAE - with nearly 88 per cent of respondents stating that they would take up a financial services job in Dubai.
“Dubai is quickly becoming a highly attractive destination for British expats, and thanks to its thriving economy, has helped reinforce its status as an internationally renowned hotspot,” added Mackenzie. “Not only does it benefit from being a financial hub, its tourism industry is also doing extremely well – positioning itself as a global haven.”
With additional benefits including a vibrant lifestyle adding even more glamour to the prospect of working in the UAE, several businesses in the Middle East are already experiencing a noticeable rise in the number of job applicants.
