TASC CEO on more jobs in the UAE
Mahesh Shahdadpuri, CEO, TASC Outsourcing, said with a focus on specialist jobs, hiring activity in the UAE will likely improve from the end of 2017 and early 2018. “The key areas where we anticipate growth are cyber-security, healthcare, tourism and digital marketing. With more organizations jumping onto the Internet of Things [IoT] bandwagon, headcount for IT related roles is bound to further increase. There is an increasing demand for expertise in digital functions across sectors — roles such as digital marketer, e-mail marketer, data analyst, content marketer, web developer, and so on — are seeing high demand,” he said.
An impressive 88 per cent CEOs in the UAE say they are confident in their own industry growth, and all CEOs polled predicted growth in their own organization. This sentiment was mirrored by GCC CEOs, 92 per cent of whom expressed similar levels of confidence in their own over the next three years – these figures are well ahead of global CEOs.
