UAE salary guide for 2017

Published

It’s the question we all wish that we could ask our colleagues and friends… How much do you actually get paid? Every year recruitment firm Robert Half do their best to answer that question for us – at least for those who work in accounting and finance, financial services, human resources, technology and legal (those of us who work in media will just have to keep guessing).

The 2017 guide has just come out, with data collated over the past year acting as a benchmark for employers. Their research shows that, although there has been a slump in hiring due to the falling oil price, things are starting to pick up thanks to Expo 2020. Apparently 68 percent of employers are looking to attract new talent in the coming year.

According to the guide, this is the salary range for these roles with the lower figure representing SMEs and the top figure representing large companies.
