Only half of the regions’ employers are looking to hire new staff this year.

That’s according to an annual survey of jobs and salaries that’s been released by hiring agency Hays UAE.

The survey reveals that just over 50% of the region’s employers plan to increase their headcount this year, compared to 74% last year.

Managing Director of Hays UAE Chris Greaves explains that while some sectors like healthcare are doing well, others are struggling.
