We’re in the middle of a global talent shortage. By 2030, more than 85 million jobs are expected to be unfilled as a result, which is roughly equivalent to the population of Germany. The IT sector is affected particularly hard, so companies interested in hiring skilled IT professionals have to cast wide nets.

The Emirates Group, the Dubai-based international aviation holding company, is now looking for 500 IT professionals from around the world for jobs in the following areas: Agile Delivery, Cybersecurity, DevOps, Digital Workplace, Hybrid Cloud, Innovation, Modern Architecture, Service Management, Software Engineering, and Technical Product Management.

“Technology is evolving, and applications are widely used across all the Emirates Group, which includes the world’s largest international airline Emirates, and one of the world’s largest combined air services providers, dnata” writes the Emirates Group on its website. “The Group is experiencing a strong recovery and demand across its businesses and is offering a range of career opportunities for skilled IT professionals to work with technologies at world-leading innovative partners in a dynamic and evolving environment”.

Besides the opportunity to move to a vibrant cosmopolitan city that’s home to over 200 nationalities, more than 80 percent of which are foreign residents, the Emirates Group is offering a range of attractive perks, including travel benefits, exclusive discounts on flights and hotels stays, as well as a tax-free salary.

The announcement the Emirates Group’s intention to recruit 500 IT professionals comes only around a month after the holding company unveiled its plans to recruit 6,000 additional operational staff to boost its workforce as travel demand rebounds. So far, the Emirates Group has restored 90 percent of its pre-pandemic passenger network.

“We are seeing strong signs of pent-up demand wherever restrictions have eased. Emirates is nimbly matching up flight services and identifying opportunities to grow our footprint” said Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Emirates Chairman and Chief Executive.

Hopefully, the Emirates Group will be able to keep all new hires long-term as the travel industry gradually recovers from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Emirates Airline To Invest $2 Billion On Major Upgrades

Emirates plans a huge retrofit on its fleet and an upgrade to the inflight experience.




Emirates Airline has just announced plans to improve its inflight experience for passengers. The carrier has budgeted $2 billion to refit the interiors of over 120 of its aircraft, aiming for a more modern aesthetic for cabins, along with better food choices, modern inflight entertainment options, and a significant service overhaul.

Emirates is well known for its premium service, so this overhaul is an ambitious decision, as many other airlines are trying their hardest to increase revenues and reduce costs.

“Emirates is flying against the grain and investing to deliver ever better experiences to our customers. Through the pandemic we’ve continued to launch new services and initiatives to ensure our customers travel with the assurance and ease, including digital initiatives to improve customer experiences on the ground. Now we’re rolling out a series of intensive programmes to take Emirates’ signature inflight experiences to the next level,” says Sir Tim Clark, President of Emirates Airline.

The investment aims to ensure Emirates stays on top form, with many of the upgrades scheduled to materialize quickly. For the physical refit, aircraft are scheduled to enter the Emirates Engineering Center in November. So what can passengers expect once work is complete? The most significant change will be to aircraft interiors, where flyers of all classes will immediately spot new flooring, paneling, and reupholstered seats.

As well as a physical overhaul, the airline plans to upgrade entertainment systems, adding a “Cinema in the Sky” experience, complete with a bespoke app. In addition, better meal choices will reflect changing dietary preferences, including a new vegan menu and a nod to sustainability — though there will remain a strong luxury vibe to the proceedings, as the company has entered an exclusive agreement to offer Dom Perignon vintage champagne on board, as well as delicacies such as Persian caviar.

Though many of the improvements may seem trivial, Emirates is hoping that along with a huge cabin overhaul, their overall flight experience will continue to make travel a pleasurable experience, elevating their service above the competition.
