UAE salaries set to increase up to 5% in 2019

If you're planning on finding a job in the UAE this year and wondering about the current job climate, you'll be happy to know that it's looking up.

It’s now been predicted that salaries around the UAE are set to increase by five percent, according to NADIA Global’s annual GCC Salary Report 2018 – 2019.

The leading recruitment and training provider’s report stated that 2019 will see a salary rise of 3.5 to five percent.

The country will also see a rise in the average country residency rate of up to ten years for those aged 25 to 50 years old.

This could partially due to the job increase in Dubai, along with the UAE starting to accept long-term residency visas for expats, investors and business people.

“We believe the UAE is a barometer for the region and that it’s entering the next stage of evolution in terms of attracting business and talent on the world stage,” said NADIA global CEO Ajay Mal-hotra.

This isn’t the first we’ve heard of a rise in salary, as insurance comparison site yallacompare surveyed more than 1,200 UAE residents on the state of their finances, with interesting results.

Another survey from recruitment firm Michael Page also revealed the average salaries in the UAE for 2019, including fields in finance and accounting, digital, sales and marketing among many more.
