Top In-demand Jobs in UAE 2024

Winter in the United Arab Emirates is coming to an End. With the new season coming, it comes with new opportunities for the summer and the local and new residents in UAE.

One of the best times to apply for the job is during the end of winter and/or the start of the Fiscal year. Most of the In-demand Jobs in UAE are available during this season, for this reason, employers tend to lock their employers during the first quarter of the Fiscal year as the budget is still freshly allocated and as they say, it is to “Start a clean slate”.

Some Employers are starting to plan for the upcoming Summer season.


If you are planning to change careers, or planning to move to UAE or any other country, the first thing you usually do is research the place, the environment, the cost of living, and most importantly the job availability. Focusing on employment wise, below are the factors you may and/or should consider to make your decision-making a little less complicated. Just a note that these are just some basic questions that need to be considered.


Your Priority

Seeking a new employer in UAE will be a big step. You have to ask yourself, what would be your reason for moving? Is it to earn better or to take one step further in your career? So you will know how to start your job hunting. If for better earnings, you can mass-sending CVs and letterhead to employers, since you are not looking for the specific role. As for Career Growth, it would be more challenging as you would be competing with other job hunters who may have the “UAE experience” that employers usually seek. Taking training will be a big help to nudge your resume.


Cost of Living

Regardless of your purpose or why you are considering UAE as your next home for your next journey, you should always check the cost of living in whichever City you will live in, whether it will be in Dubai, Sharjah, Abu Dhabi, Al Ain, etc. This will help you to negotiate your salary package during your interview. After all, everyone works not just for fun, we work to save for our retirement, to support our families, and to live comfortably.


Culture and Lifestyle

Knowing the culture and lifestyle of the locals will help you to give a heads-up on what to expect. Plus, it is just right for you to learn their culture out of respect and blend into their lifestyle. This does not just apply to the country, but to the job you are about to enter. It is always nice to have the initiative to adjust for them.
