DUBAI: Hiring experts in the UAE have predicted that recruitment is expected to pick up this year, reports the Gulf News.
According to the report, employment opportunities have continued to open up for UAE professionals looking to change jobs, with the latest listings showing hundreds of new vacancies.
As of Monday, the report added, there are at least 2,357 open jobs listed on Gulf News’ job portal and positions available include accountants, technicians, teachers and engineers. There are also vacancies for drivers, housemaids, car cleaners, office clerks, secretaries, administrative assistants, receptionists and salesmen.
Leading the pack in hiring are employers from Dubai, with at least 1,500 available positions, followed by companies in Abu Dhabi that have 400 roles and Sharjah, with 277 vacancies.
Jobseekers who are willing to work outside the city centre can find opportunities in Ajman, where more than 100 new jobs are up for grabs, as well as in Ras Al Khaimah, Fujairah and Umm Al Quwain.
