UAE employers are hiring locally available talent on a temporary basis to save money

Dubai: UAE companies seeking to save on the high cost of recruiting international talent are increasingly open to the idea of hiring locally available professionals on a part-time basis.

According to a provider of temporary staff based in Dubai, more and more organisations in the country, especially those in the information technology, telecommunications, retail, oil and gas, financial services and fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) industries, are employing staff on a temporary basis to save time and money.

The demand for temporary manpower is prevalent in multinational companies, local conglomerates and semi-government organisations in the country. Roles related to business process support and banking are the most supportive of flexible staff, especially women. There are also opportunities for temporary staff in sales, business support and IT positions.

A lot of companies in Dubai are hiring temporary staff. Taking advantage of a local highly skilled talent pool that would not want to work permanently but are willing to work as flexible staff is a lot cheaper than re-locating talent from abroad, Abbas Ali, vice president of TASC Outsourcing, told Gulf News.

The company, which provides temporary manpower for 50 different job functions in many organisations around the UAE, has surveyed companies to gauge their attitudes towards hiring part-time employees.
