The competition for highly skilled banking tech candidates is fiercer than ever. As recruiters, we see daily the issues that many banking technology companies face during the current skills shortage. In 2019, IT security analysists, data scientists and analysts, project managers, digital and cybersecurity experts were among some of the most in-demand roles.  Technology employees are in such short supply because of one reason – the tech sector is advancing at a rate faster than we can keep up.  If you have been waiting for the right tech candidate for a role you’ve had open for weeks, or even months, you will understand what I am saying here. Grabbing...

The UAE’s nationalisation programme has been a momentous event in the history of the UAE job economy. The Emiratisation scheme’s focus has been on protecting job opportunities for UAE citizens and has provided locals with considerable career prospects. Since it was unveiled in 2010, the UAE’s Vision 2021 programme has championed homegrown talent and has continued to strive for the placement of as many UAE nationals in local roles as possible.

As a recruitment company, we help a wide variety of candidates into their dream roles, and over the years, we have seen a shift in the recruiting patterns of banking and tech companies in the MENA region. Thanks to our hyper-connected society, it is possible for the job search to reach out across many countries. The question is how? Video and Skype interviews have changed the face of recruiting, and conference calling has made the recruiting process sleeker and faster. But all of this technology has brought with it one downside for job seekers – a poorly maintained social media profile might be hampering your job prospects.  According to a...

As a business owner, hiring fresh graduates might seem counter-productive to your short-term goals, as you would prefer someone who is already well acquainted with the workplace. Sometimes, banking tech business owners that we work with are less enthused about graduates and prefer to have someone with years of experience – the more experienced, the better. But in adopting this way of thinking, you are certainly disregarding a sizeable and valuable proportion of the employee market.  While studies show that every successful workplace needs to include a diverse team of different ages, backgrounds and genders, graduates have a set of skills...
