According to the airline’s website, the requirement for the role of cabin crew would have a starting salary of Dh7,380 (basic pay + housing allowance + transportation allowance). This also comes with variable flying pay worth Dh3,800 (monthly average).

Qualified pilots with the necessary flight hours, licences, and certifications are invited to apply as well with a basic salary of Dh31,900 (along with housing allowance + transportation allowance), with variable flying pay of Dh11,410 (monthly average).

The airline seeks individuals with expertise in aircraft maintenance, avionics, and various engineering disciplines. Additionally, the airline is looking to expand its catering team.

Similarly, the UAE’s national career Etihad Airways is seeking pilots and first officers both for passenger and cargo flights with details of the job descriptions posted on their website.

As per their website, the first officers for one of the categories (First Officer Non-Rated B777/B787) should have a minimum of 2,500 hours total flying time and a minimum of 1500 hours on multi-crew, glass cockpit, or high-performance military jet.

Healthcare sector

The demand for healthcare professionals in the UAE is projected to experience exponential growth in the coming years. By 2030, the country will need over 33,000 nurses and allied health professionals, creating significant opportunities in the sector.

A recent forecast from Colliers Healthcare & Education division's market intelligence report highlights the specific requirements in Abu Dhabi and Dubai. Abu Dhabi is expected to face a shortage of 11,000 nurses and 5,000 allied health professionals by 2030. Similarly, Dubai will require 6,000 physicians and 11,000 nurses. These demands are primarily driven by factors such as population growth, the rise of medical tourism, an increasing burden of chronic diseases, an aging population, higher patient expectations, and rapid advancements in treatment innovation and technology.
