The top four countries, recruiting the majority of the workers from the United Arab Emirates (UAE), are the United States (US), the United Kingdom (UK), Canada, and Israel.
A payment and hiring company, Deel, published a report called “State of Global Hiring” revealing that the 4 countries are recruiting for the most demanded positions, including software engineers, product designers, front-end developers, sales specialists, and trading contractors.
Financial, information technology (IT), marketing & advertising firms are the ones employing UAE workers the most. UAE’s seriousness in developing a knowledge economy, attracting talent, and adopting technologies like artificial intelligence (AI), cryptocurrencies, and metaverse, can be attributed to its workers’ demand.
Similarly, local universities have also affiliated with top-ranked global institutes, bringing UAE’s educational sector on par with the leading countries.
The study also discovered that 37.6% of workers in UAE were 25-34 years old, 28.7% were 35-44 years old, and 25.1% were 16-24 years old.
Deel tracked around 260,000 employment contracts in 160 countries from January to December 2022. The report also noted that UAE’s salaries are increasing by 5-10% for all groups.
