Top 5 UAE industries hiring right now




There are fewer jobs available for the hundreds of UAE residents seeking new opportunities today, but certain businesses continue to expand and create additional positions.

According to the latest Monster Employment Index Middle East, a monthly gauge of online job postings in the region, the chemicals, plastic, rubber, paints, fertilizer and pesticides industry is currently leading the market in job creation. This sector had more vacancies to fill in October compared to a year earlier, registering a 50 per cent year-on-year growth in hiring.

There is also a high demand for talent in the UAE’s education industry, which posted a 33 per cent growth in recruitment. Companies in the medical industry are likewise seeking more skilled professionals, with the health care recruitment index rising by 21 per cent.

Hotels and other service-oriented organisations are keeping their doors open to jobseekers as well, with the hospitality index growing by 15 per cent. The oil and gas sector, which registered a 7 per cent year-on-year increase in labour demand, is also worth looking into.
