Jobs in Dubai

Postby yoyoma » Tue 13 Apr 2004 10:15 GMT

Hello Everyone,

My appoligies if this question has been asked somewhere before but I'm wanting to know if anyone can point me in the right direction for getting a job in the UAE.

I'll be graduating with a Accounting degree in a months time and am wondering if there are any reputable recruiters out there on the net. Or if in fact I'm wasting my time as I don't have a large amount of experience under my belt yet.

Any advice?
Thanks.

Yoyo.

Hi Yoyo

Welcome to the forum. I don't know if it'll help but all employment-related ads in our classified ads section are free to both employers and job seekers, so please feel free to post a job wanted ad in there.

My BA is in accountancy too, and it took me around the world before I became a layabout - so good luck with it!

Hope you find a job soon. With any luck Audrey will be along soon to answer your question.

Cheers

Hi Yoyo
I honestly don't know of any recruitment agancies as such off the top of my head. I am going back now in 2 weeks and if you still need help I can ask around for you.
You could just trya a general web search on employment/uae but not too sure where that would get you.
Please let me know if you would like me to ask around when I go back and good luck with your search.

There is a a whole bunch of job sites thru this link [url deleted by Site Admin - see below] - some are better than others. You can also try the guardian job site for journalism jobs andmonster for IT jobs.

As far as agencies in Dubai go Clarendon Parker seem quite reputable (they are on the list of job sites).

Happy hunting :D

Hello,

Securing a Job in Dubai, whether in Accounting or any field for that matter is not as simple as forwarding your resume to n number of Recruiting Agencies. It IS an important part, however, I suggest a more proactive role if you really want to secure your DREAM Dubai job.

Here are some other important areas to cover:
1) Send your Resume to the Human Resources Department of some of the TOP companies in your career field.

2) Follow some important recruiters on Twitter and Facebook.

3) Browse some top local "Jobs Available" sections of classified sites & newspapers.

4) Browse the job vacancy pages of companies and recruiters.

5) Browse some Dubai Jobs related blogs.

All this is doable & will surely put you in the lead to secure your Dream Job.

Hope this helps,
All The Best. In your Quest.
:D

Kay's post was 8 years ago, there might not be anything current in that section since it was so long ago.

Thanks, Graeme. You're quite right. We discontinued that classified ads section years ago. It was too much effort to keep it clean of spam. Once again, the nasties spoiled an otherwise good service for the decent people.

Sorry, Greg. Good luck with finding a job by some other means. :)

Edit: Oh, I now see that you tried to advertise a service by dumping a link on here. Not allowed!

Start by registering with a recruitment agency in Dubai. Employers also use local newspapers and headhunters to advertise job opportunities.

Gulf News appointments supplement, Khaleej Times Appointments and The National careers section are some of the good resources.

Checking listings online? Go to monstergulf.com, naukrigulf.com, bayt.com and gulftalent.com.

Job advertisements are posted on dubizzle.com and expatwoman.com as well.

Also, do not miss out the UAE labour laws and other essential details to work in Dubai.
