The number of UAE employees who want to change their industry is on the rise as they offer better career growth opportunities.
A new survey released by YouGov and Bayt.com revealed that 6 in 10 professionals in the UAE are considering an industry change in the next few months. Around half of them – 49 per cent – are citing better salary as the top reason for an industry change followed by better career growth at 46 per cent.
The survey found that hospitality, recreation and entertainment emerged as the most appealing sectors amongst those considering a change.
Zafar Shah, research director at YouGov said the findings will support future earners and employees as well as offer a glimpse of industries hiring fresh graduates so they can access meaningful employment and thrive in today’s job market.
It further revealed that around a quarter of UAE employees changed their jobs at least once in the past two years for higher salaries and better career growth opportunities, which were the top two reasons.

We find that technology-driven job creation is forecast to rise with IT/ Internet/ E-commerce expected to record the strongest growth in the coming year,” said Zafar Shah.
Around 19 per cent of respondents believe that government offers the best salary packages (inclusive of non-monetary benefits) after oil, gas and petrochemicals.
A recent report by Cooper Fitch predicted that salaries in the UAE will increase by three per cent in 2022.

The majority of respondents – 71 per cent – also believe that the government is a favourable employer, with 56 per cent claiming that it is an extremely favourable one.
