Sale of commercial properties in Dubai for the financial sector could increase, as there is a reported rise in recruitment in this field.
According to an employment survey by a recruitment company cited in Emirates Business, Robert Half, the demand for "highly skilled" professionals in accounting and finance exists, along with other specialties, in the United Arab Emirates.
After a recent survey was conducted by Nuakrigulf.com, Emirates Business spoke to its zonal manager, Rahul Khar, about the results for hiring figures.
Mr Khar said: "Companies have definitely started hiring now. Our survey showed that more than 60 per cent are recruiting people again.
He added: "Jobs on our website have increased. Now, post Ramadan, there is an increase in activity."
James Sayer, senior manager at Robert Half UAE, was quoted in Emirates Business as saying the accounting and finance industries had done better than other sectors due to there being a need to have good finance and accounting functions in an economic downturn.
