Ramia Farrage interviews Trefor Muprhy live Dubai One on UAE job market trends. We're reporting a positive return to new opportunities in the market in 2019, with a 4-5% increase in available jobs compared to 2018. Notable growth within Abu Dhabi across investment, public sector, semi-government, large infrastructure projects. In terms of hiring demand within UAE sectors; notably, the public sector is busy hiring, positive returns to FMCG and manufacturing recruitment activity. While the digital revolution is still a focus in the UAE, we see the growth in demand for digital and new technology skill sets, such as AI. None the less, reporting a high supply of talent in the region, salary ranges are stable across most sectors with no notable increase. Trefor's advice on studying an in-demand skillset for the future? If you have an interest in FinTech, digital or AI, you should develop these skills. Otherwise, follow aspects of interest to you, study what you love, and everything else will fall into place.
