We see a continued demand for very high calibre internationally based candidates.

Within the sales and marketing field, we see a continued demand for very high calibre internationally based candidates who can lead the sales and marketing function. Organisations are leveraging those high caliber individuals and sometimes hire less experienced employees to support them. They hire subject matter experts to reach their sales value.

Expecting an increase of roles as the UAE prepare for Expo2020.

With a surge of visitors coming to the Emirates in the lead up to Dubai Expo 2020, the number of sales and marketing jobs in the Emirates is certainly looking to increase. The demand for sales people in the food and beverage, service and logistics industries are increasing. The IMF predicts that GDP will increase by 3.7 percent in the UAE and this can be reflected by the number of new players that are entering the market to take advantage of Expo 2020.  The government’s decision to ease the laws on visa regulations also demonstrates the government’s commitment to increasing the expatriate workforce.

Managing a diverse team is one of the most important leadership competencies.

We have noticed a growing need for Regional Sales roles as businesses are expanding and moving their sales efforts to other countries in the region, mainly the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. There are more companies promoting their employees from within rather than hiring for senior positions. One of the most important leadership competencies when hiring for senior roles is having a proven track record of managing a diverse team of people.  We have also noticed an increased need in leaders with transformational leadership quality who are self-motivated and visionary. Additionally, we see a lot of need for International subject-matter experts due to the dynamic ever-changing sales and marketing field present in the Emirates.

Future opportunities in FMCG e-commerce.

E-commerce is becoming an important factor in further driving fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) growth across major markets globally. The e-commerce market value has reached $10 billion in 2018 in the UAE and it is expected to increase by 18 per cent in 2019. The market is becoming increasingly competitive with the increase of SMEs opting to set up e-commerce stores instead of physical merchandise lines.
