Recruitment levels in UAE sustained over summer
Recruitment levels are expected to sustain over the coming months despite the summer holidays, figures show.The Gulf Recruitment Group found that the summer months of 2010 were unaffected by a recruitment dip and June figures for this year indicate that momentum will continue again."It is a smart move when companies continue their recruitment during this period," Steve Freed, director at the Gulf Recruitment Group, said.Last year, the number of candidates interviewed in the UAE increased by 16 per cent between June and September.Mr Freed suggested that the summer months allow employers to pick the best candidates "without having to enter into a bartering war"."Companies can then bring staff on and train them during the summer period ready for when business really picks up," he explained.The company revealed that sectors including healthcare, infrastructure, education and insurance are enjoying strong growth this year.Last week, Khaleej Times reported that a number of young students are flocking to Dubai this summer to learn more about the Arabic language and culture, enrolling in classes before seeking careers in the emirate.
