WAM: Jobs in the telecoms, Information Technology (IT) and media sectors are in increasing demand among job-seeking Emiratis, according to findings by Careers UAE, the leading recruitment and training fair for UAE nationals, which returns to Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) on March 19-21.

Trends identified in post-event reports and visitor feedback from last year’s show put opportunities in the telecoms, IT and media sectors among candidates’ top 10 most sought-after industries, alongside the conventional mainstay segments of finance, governmental, engineering, and oil and gas.

“This developing trend reflects increasing recognition amongst Emirati job seekers of the wealth of opportunities and career progression that exists in these new age industries, and particularly how they are playing a major role in the development of Dubai’s Smart City ambitions and the UAE’s strategy of emerging as a credible knowledge-based economy,” explained Asma Al Sharif, Show Director – Careers UAE 2019.

“The sheer scale of opportunities opening up from UAE-wide adoption of strategies to advance technologies, including artificial intelligence, machine learning, automation and blockchain, appeal to Emirati’s nation-building ambitions and enable them to play an active role in reshaping business and the economy.”

UAE telecommunications giant, Etisalat, which is back at Careers UAE for the 19th consecutive year, is aiming to capitalise on the sector’s popularity by filling numerous roles at the show.

“The telecoms industry is constantly evolving and we are seeking to hire the best talent for roles within our Technology, IT, Sales and marketing departments,” said Younis Al Nimr, Group Chief Human Resource Officer, Etisalat. “Platforms such as Careers UAE provide us with a perfect opportunity to engage with the right people to help build a smart future for Etisalat as we continue to set the trend in telecoms.”

Demand for media industry posts follows the outstanding success of many pioneering Emiratis who are carving out careers in design, or as social media bloggers, influencers and digital campaign developers.

The UAE is recognised for its high adoption of new technology and Al Sharif believes that today’s Emirati youth increasingly want to be involved in the creation of consumer-facing digital content.

“Digital is now being integrated into all facets of local life, including business and government,” added Al Sharif. “All business and governmental sectors at the show appear to be searching for Emiratis with the talent, skills and desire to succeed in careers where technology and communications have a transformative role to play.”

Huge prospects can be unearthed at Careers UAE given the show’s results pedigree. Last year exhibitors amassed over 41,250 CVs when they prioritised fresh school leavers and graduates looking for their first jobs and more senior Emiratis with three-to-five years’ experience.
