UAE logistics executives earning Dh75,000 per month
Recruitment consultancy firm Morgan McKinley released its annual UAE salary guide for 2012 yesterday.
While bank traders and investment consultants are the best earners in the country, receiving up to Dh100, 000 (US$27,226) per month, certain logistics executives, such as supply chain managers and procurement specialists (oil & gas and engineering), are paid up to Dh75, 000 per month, the report revealed.
In a summary at the start of the report, Trefor Murphy, managing director for Morgan McKinley UAE, wrote: “Job opportunities are up across the board on 2010 and 2009 numbers but still 40% down on 2011 for the same time of year.
“Abu Dhabi in particular has witnessed an exponential rise in vacancies, although less heavily weighted in the public sector than at any point in the last five years. Market competiveness has received a significant lift from the freedom of movement driven by the labour reforms at the beginning of 2011,” he added.
Meanwhile, Arabian Business summarised the logistics industry findings on its website: “In the technical sector, which includes engineering, logistics, construction and energy, competition for staff from China, India and South East Asia has had an impact and some Indian workers are already returning home for better prospects. Despite this, 48 per cent of UAE employees in this sector got an increase of more than eight per cent in their last review.”
