Top In-Demand Skills for UAE Jobs in 2023

Data shows that many common occupations, including call center agents, marketers, salespeople, business development managers, and financial officers, may be performed from home.

Numerous job openings in the UAE and the Gulf are advertised on various job portals and channels for job searchers, despite a reduction in job advertising for remote or work-from-home positions.

According to data, there are many popular vocations that may be done from home, including call center representatives, marketing specialists, sales executives, business development managers, and financial officers.

Despite a decline in job advertisements for remote or work-from-home roles, there are many job vacancies in the UAE and the Gulf that are listed on numerous job portals and channels for job seekers.

“In order to match their quickly changing tactics, recruiters are searching for people with the appropriate capabilities. A university degree or a few years of work experience are no longer sufficient qualifications. According to Najat Abdelhadi, to differentiate yourself from the competition, you must possess the abilities that will increase business productivity and growth.

“Skills have really grown to be so important that, on average, between 2015 and 2022 in the UAE, the necessary skills across industries changed by 27%. The rate of change has also quickened because of the Covid-19 epidemic that is reshaping the labour market. Therefore, job searchers must keep up with the most recent skills required for their positions, said Abdelhadi.
