Highest and lowest paying jobs in UAE this year

Dubai:  When looking for jobs, people normally tend to gravitate towards those that can have a positive impact in their lives, especially the ones that offer a good work-life balance, career growth and employment security.

But, given the cost of living these days, money seems to play a more important role in a job hunter’s decision to apply for a position. Who doesn’t want to earn a high salary, anyway?

In order to find out which professions offer the most cash in the UAE, Gulf News has crunched the latest salary figures compiled by the recruitment specialists at Hays.

The data that Hays provided were based on a survey of more than 4,000 working professionals in the UAE.  And the salary figures apply to various fields, from accounting and finance, construction and engineering to human resources, office support and information and technology.

As can be expected, professionals that hold the highest positions, including chief executive officers and chief financial officers, bag the highest income, with a lucky few of them earning up to a whopping Dh200,000 a month.
