Expat hiring most difficult in KSA, easiest in UAE
Local daily Emirates 247 reports that the search for employees in the GCC region has eased in comparison to hiring levels last year.
A panel of experts at a forum organised recently by Gulf Talent, a job search website, stated that skilled professionals are still in demand with the UAE remaining the most attractive market for hiring expatriate talent.
According to the panel, Saudi Arabia is the most challenging.
However, data by Hays Middle East shows that top talent prefer UAE, Qatar and Saudi Arabia.
"These regions offer better career prospects and higher salaries and as the modernisation of the cities continue, they are becoming a more attractive place to live in", it asserts.
