We have been receiving many messages asking for advice on the availability of work positions. Unfortunately, we are not in a position to find a job for prospective applicants.
People usually come to Dubai through recruitment companies in their home countries. There are some who arrive here with their partners or spouses and others who come first on holiday or when visiting friends and then start looking for a job.
If you find a job through recruitment companies in your country (before coming UAE), the hiring company will be paying for your airline ticket, relocation costs and official documentation related to your residency.
If you are certain about the specific industry field where you want to work, it is worth to contact companies directly in that domain, through sending your CV to them. Many such companies have vacancy listings on their own company websites.
It is usually easy to find a job once you are in the UAE. Dubai based English speaking local newspapers Gulf News (www.gulfnews.com) and Khaleej Times (www.khaleejtimes.com) have dedicated classified job listings and appointment supplements. They can be extremely useful in arranging your job-seeking schedule and starting the networking process.
The majority of recruitment companies will accept your CV by email. Registering with them will require to fill a form. Recruitment companies charge the hiring companies when the recruitment process ends successfully, as it is not allowed to charge the job-seeking applicant.
