Are you earning enough? UAE salary guide 2021 revealed

A new survey of 200 companies in the UAE has revealed what sort of salary you should be expecting for a range of jobs.

The Cooper Fitch survey found that a third of UAE companies had to make redundancies last year.

Encouragingly, 62% said work was busy or was starting to pick up, with 28% looking to add new staff this year. And the Emirates has a bright future, with the Central Bank of the UAE projecting the economy will grow by 2.5% this year.

Which is all surprisingly good news considering the burning fire in a dumpster that was 2020!

The UAE salary survey covered a whole range of different sectors including technology, oil and gas, retail, construction, office work and more.

We’ve added some of the figures below so you can check on what you should be getting paid!

And you can check out the full list of salary expectations on the The National’s page here.
