We have certainly seen a healthy, robust and very encouraging pickup in hiring activity,” said Suhail Masri, the company’s vice-president of sales.

Employers across the industry spectrum are looking to hire at all career levels,” he said, “from entry-level to mid-management and senior executive, in varied roles, including in sectors that were harder hit during the recessionary years and have recently started cautiously reconsolidating and hiring for growth.

“The quality of professional talent UAE employers are sourcing today on is indicative that Dubai has in no way lost its broad mass appeal as a world-class destination to live and work.
