Salary survey reveals pockets of positive pay news in Qatar
As one of the fastest growing economies in the world, Qatar continues to attract talent into its market to maintain expansion. As part of the GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council), it remains a desirable location to work for many.
Certain sectors, such as Energy, Property and Construction, Aviation, Information Technology (IT) and Technology, Financial Services, Accountancy and Banking remain stronger than others with candidates continuing to apply for vacancies. Within these sectors remains a demand for talent from the relevant candidate pools and generally, the requirement from clients focuses on senior, highly skilled professionals. Where necessary, suitable candidates will be sought from both inside and outside of Qatar.
Salaries are also remaining relatively stable, with few increases reported. Areas that have seen increases include IT and Infrastructure, Energy and some areas of Construction. These sectors all represent key areas that are required to support the growing state of Qatar.
Steve Williams, Reed Personnel Services Country Manager in the Qatar, says: “The research findings provide a valuable insight for employers, employees and jobseekers, and is an excellent addition to our new website which forms part of reedglobal.com which spans our operations across 12 countries in Europe, the Middle East and Asia Pacific."
