Work in the UAE for Ukrainians
The labor market in Dubai offers huge opportunities for development and … huge incomes.
Dasha Ivashchenko – General Director of the Employment Agency Smartstaff Recruitment talks with Ilona Korzhenovskaya.
Smartstaff Recruitment is engaged in hiring employees from Europe to work in Dubai. The proposal sounds exotic and tempting at the same time, why can Ukrainians expect good work in this region?
The guy with the suitcase entered the hotel in Dubai and said in a low voice to the manager: “I would like to save my savings in the hotel safe. In the suitcase 100 000. Dollars.” The manager replies with a smile: “Please do not whisper, poverty is not a shame.”
This joke very accurately reflects the reality of Dubai. Until recently, the city in the middle of the desert, unknown to the average mortal, now the capital of the country is one of the largest, ever-developing financial powers. Beauty, luxury and great weather attract more and more tourists, and consequently, more and more jobs are being created. United Arab Emirates is a place especially attractive for specialists in its fields – doctors, engineers, architects, IT specialists and managers. With the increase in the number of five-star hotels that began to grow like mushrooms after the rain, the demand for employees from Europe in the gastronomy and tourism industry has increased. The opportunities in this completely new, ever-growing city with an abundance of cash are huge, and very high incomes at a zero tax rate are just an additional incentive.
The labor market in Dubai, of course, is different from the labor market in Europe.
What can surprise a candidate who has worked in the UK, Czech Republic or Poland?

It is worth using the help of an employment agency, which, after all, is free, and this process is very simple.
