Hiring trends in the Middle East in 2016

In 2016, consolidation by government, family groups and international conglomerates dominated the region. Some sectors, such as technology, media and telecoms (TMT), finance and banking, as well as luxury and general retail, fared better than oil and gas, construction and financial services.

Legal professionals at the senior end were in high demand but there were fewer than expected junior positions. Niche areas within specific disciplines, such as digital marketing, tax and VAT specialists in finance and compliance experts in banking were also buoyant.
