Macdonald & Company to launch annual Middle East Salary Survey for the real estate sector at Cityscape Dubai 2007
Macdonald & Company, the leading property recruitment specialist, will launch the first Middle East Salary Survey for the real estate industry at Cityscape Dubai 2007. The launch will follow the conclusion of a survey distributed to real estate professionals and companies across the region, in cooperation with the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and Cityscape Dubai. This partnership will ensure industry-wide participation in the Survey and accurate, thorough results.
Set to be a definitive reference in the Middle East property industry, the publication of the Salary Survey will look into remuneration and benefits in the property sector. Real estate professionals can fill out the Survey form online by accessing the companies’ websites (www.macdonaldandcompany.ae and www.cityscape.ae ).
“Cityscape Dubai 2006 was extremely important for Macdonald and Company, as we successfully established our firm as the leading property recruitment specialist in the Middle East. The 4-page Salary Guide we produced was a huge success, and the feedback we received encouraged us to go one step further with an in-depth Survey including compensation, bonuses, benefits and job satisfaction levels. The quality of the results this year will depend on active participation and we encourage property professionals across the region to go online and complete the 5 minute Survey” said William Buck, International Director, Macdonald and Company.
Macdonald & Company is closely collaborating with Cityscape Dubai and the RICS in conducting the industry-wide survey, as well as the publication and launch. The partnership leverages Cityscape’s exhaustive database of real estate professionals and companies across the region. The results of the survey will also be published on Cityscape’s new online market intelligence service (CMIS) and the Cityscape Magazine.
“The Middle East Salary Survey will be the first-of-its-kind publication in the regional property industry and will make available unknown industry information. Realizing its importance, we are delighted that this will be launched at Cityscape Dubai and published exclusively in our new online market intelligence service (CMIS) and Cityscape Magazine”, said Rohan Marwaha, Group Director, Cityscape Dubai.
During the exhibition, consultants from Macdonald and Company will also offer consultancy services to visitors at its stand from October 16-18, 2007 at Dubai International Exhibition Centre. Having gained thorough knowledge of the local property market, they are able to recommend reliable recruitment techniques to employers and career development paths to employees.

“With the long-term commitment of the three organisations, we are confident that we will be able to continue conducting an independent and confidential survey on an annual basis.
