  • If you are considering a career change, research well the strengths of the Dubai market. In recent years the hospitality and tourism sectors have exploded. Construction has been one of the big employers but is now suffering from the global economic slowdown. However opportunities still selectively exist in the sector.

    With the opening of Health Care City and new hospitals in Dubai, opportunities in these areas will continue to exist. If you are a teacher, there are also opportunities as new schools in Dubai come on stream to cater for the increasing population. However, the efforts teachers make in developing our children’s education is not always reflected in their remuneration.


    When you are negotiating a job offer with an employer there will be a number of benefits which need to be raised as part of your discussion.

    The following should be discussed.

    • Annual housing allowance
    • Relocation costs
    • Health insurance
    • School fees if applicable
    • Annual flights home
    • What currency you will be paid in
    If you are moving to Dubai to set up a business, My Move partners can assist you with company formation as well as advise on where to locate.


    Getting a job in any foreign country is often not straight forward and Dubai is no different. It is however a very positive place to work, you simply have to see what is developing here, to see that a positive attitude prevails. Carry out research on any perspective company you are meeting, prepare well for interview and demonstrate you willingness to be flexible in an ever changing market. Remember Middle Eastern employment experience can be a very valuable addition to your curriculum vitae.

    Good luck!
